Pine can be a pain. Making some frame and panel doors for some built-ins. Found some really nice 1/4" knotty pine ply for the panels. Unfortunately, even though I picked through about 80 boards at Lowes, the pine for the frames is anything but straight and stable. Having lots of problems with movement after machining.
I know, what am I doing with big box pine. Well, this entire bedroom built-in project started out as an experiment in furniture building with off-the-shelf, big box only materials. I'm determined to see it through. I'll cuss a bit and throw it across the shop a few times. That might help.
