yesterday i saw an ad on the net from someone who said he was selling 56 reclaimed beechwood planks, in total about 0.7 cubic meter for €160, while beech usually goes for €700-1200/m3. it wasn’t too far so i called and made an appointment, went there and discovered it was plain pine. the guy couldn’t tell the difference and someone had told him it was beech… sigh.

i am not sure i could have identified any hardwoods or softwoods before i started woodworking, but i think everybody can recognize pine. not?
