By “Pine is Fine” I don’t mean it’s “Ok if you haven’t anything else”. I mean it is an elegant beautiful wood that should be prized by woodworkers. I think to often its dubbed as a soft option, no pun intended, by woodworks who only use high end hardwoods. I am here to say that this wood has its own set of techniques and skills to work. Any woodworker who is too hoydi toydi to use it is not selective but limited in their understanding of woodworking.
Now that my rant is over… This is a beast of a table! 8’ long built out if 1 1/2” stock. The owners wanted benches with it but didn’t want the people to have to step over a bench to sit down. So we came up with this two person bench idea and it works really well. I will definatly use it on other projects. It got a nice satin poly finish on the blue pine. A great place for thanksgiving dinner!
