    A Different Kind Done

    I took to long, but it's done. Original thread was a "different kind of pine".
    More commonly called Dade County Pine. Think it came out nice, the newly weds love it. Watco Danish Oil (Natural) with 4 coats of Polcrylic to stand up to kitchen use. (factory legs)

    I like it! The wood is really gorgeous and it looks like your choice of finish really brings out it's beauty. Nicely done!

    Definately pretty and well executed. What makes the 'pine' different?

    That table top weights in at over 80 lbs. Termite resistant and hard as rock. The boards I made that from were over 150 years old and boy did they do a number on my planner blades. Thats ok, I always keep and old dull set around for the rough planning an then put on the good sharp blades to finish. The yellow streaking you you see is very resinous still to this day. The dust from them smelled wonderful but stuck to everything -planner blades, planner rollers, inside the hoses to vacuum, etc. Also gave me practice using a hand plan as sandpaper would clog right up. I'm building some smaller end tables also and maybe using a friends lathe to make my own legs out of the same wood. Thanks for the comments.
