The bird’s eye pine that I picked up way back in 2010, finally found a home.
Some friends were visiting, and HE told me that SHE was admiring our coffee table (see my pine coffee table project). HE told me that HE wanted to pay me to build HER a similar table for Christmas.
“So” says I, “What kind of wood does SHE like?” HE says, “The wilder, the better.” Well, have I got the wood for HER!
HE ordered it a little taller than mine and I only made three drawers, but I am happy with the results.
HE didn’t want it stained, so that SHE can pick out her own color – so here is my finished product.
I think they ultimately chose a red oak type of stain color.
I was very pleased to be able to use this crazy looking wood for somebody who will appreciate it.
