I have been using white pine for more than 30 years with no regrets.
1) Corner hutch made in 1983 (recent pic)

2) Toy Box made recently

3) Shelf

And then there is cedar bought milled on one side and both edges…some 1×3 pickets.

And Red Oak. I buy as much as I can at the hardwood seller when they have short pieces (<48 inches) on sale 50% off.

Gitchasome and get to slinging sawdust.
