Hi, I am still kicking around some ideas about pine boards. The pine wood 1×12s I have had in the past were air dried and leaked sap all over the place. Is there a kiln dried pine board that will not leak sap, or a better grade of pine that I could purchase? If so I am looking for a distributor that will shipp or is loacted in the South west Iowa location or around Omaha Ne. The reason I am seeking pine is my main main buyer of furniture likes pine. I just need to know the truth about sap and kiln dried pine. Thank you, Noel.

Noel -

From what I remember, pine needs to be kiln dried at 180F for 24 hours to “set the pitch”. What sort of finish are you using on the pine? I’ve heard that shellac or polyurethane finishes will prevent the sap from bleeding through.

I was using 2 coats of Zinseer to seal the air dried pine, and that did’t stop the leaking. I am wondering how many suppliers have kiln dried pine and can I get by without sealing it if it is kiln dried. After sealing I then stained, and finished with water based products. I switched to alder and it works great but my buyer still wants pine.
