When I was in the furniture business, we occasionally had a pine piece of furniture with birds eye. It was always something special to see. Recently, I was at a Lowes that was about 3 hours away from me and I came across these pine beauties. I had to have them cut in half to fit in my car, but since I don’t build anything too long, it shouldn’t be a problem.
My wife thinks that they are “kind of ugly”. I let her know that she is mistaken!
I don’t know yet what I am gonna build with these, but I just couldn’t leave them there!
Also, the birds eye pattern goes all the way through to the other side of each board.
