This was my first woodworking project I finished a few months back. The tables are made of pine. I really enjoyed this project, just wish I had more experience with staining.

PINE?? Seriously? When I first saw the picture, I said, Wow cocobolo…then I read the post. You are the PINE master when it comes to a rich finish.

Really nice job. Hard to believe they’re pine.
