Northern White Pine to go with a bed recently completed. Solid 1/2” solid side panels and drawers. Logs cut from a local fair grounds and air dried. First time working with locally cut pine. Very much enjoyed working with this type of wood but found working with soft wood came with issues like sap buildup on cutting tools.

Nicely done. What finish did you use? I really like the color.

Thanks Chem. I used 3 coats of sanding sealer then 3 coats of poly, sanding between coats with 200 or 400 grit and 2 coats of paste wax on the top and drawer fronts.

Nicely done. I like the finish on the pine. Provides a soft, light appearance. Well done.
