    I was looking at a timber merchants yesterday, that had some resawn 6″x2″ pine boards in the rough. They are about 19 mm in thickness, they will be to thin for furniture when planed up, but should be great for boxes though.

    He said they were left over from an order that was no longer needed. Well the price he was asking was to good to turn down, so I bought the lot.

    HaHa you might be seeing a lot of boxes guys. I was also given a van load of reclaimed wood from dismantled solid pine furniture, that was on its way to the dump. A very good day wooden you say. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Serhiy, storage is getting to be a problem, like you I need some kind of lumber rack. I only ever intended to keep small amounts in the workshop, but Ha you know how it go’s. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Ken
    You will have to purchase a load of machines and start churning out the DVD cabinets to use up all of the timber. Lol

    I have dismantled pine furniture in the past thinking that will be good timber to use on future projects ,but it can some times be disappointing , the quality is poor and it is very often made up of smaller pieces glued together.
    Lets know how you go on with your timber.

    I think all dismantled pine furniture is the same David. I took it for making projects for the workshop, or for pieces that will never be seen. I think using good timber for such pieces is a waist of good timber.

    David I would hate to make the same thing over and over, but you have to do what you have to do ๐Ÿ™‚
