Cleaning up a pile from an old garage tear down. A 2×8 give me a few boards that I don’t know which tree it came from:
A reddish pink, with a few white areas. That black streak is from the weathered (and wet) outside surface. Stuff tends to burn on the saw. Not a pine, way too hard for that.
Here is the underside of a panel I am gluing up. The “top” side is almost all red in colour. As for those rafters in the pile…QSWO! Yep, and all I have to do is de-nail them. A look at a few pieces:
Handles were made with a Forstner bit, and bandsawn to shape on the outside. Still have to round-over the edges. Parts are just sitting there, no assembly as of yet.
