birds eye pine

I came into alot of this pine and made a few larger pieces from it but I really dont like the look of so many eyes in one place,,,,, any suggestions as to smaller projects to use it on?...boxes and pens are all I can think of.. for some reason my mind is blanking on it.

Sure is wild looking stuff. I would think something like small boxes, or used as a trim detail moulding.

Maybe use it on something that is going to be painted or just rub a darker stain on it. Pine is so porous, it would blend the bird's eye's in with the rest of the wood well.

Oh! A chair or something like that wouldn't be a bad idea IMO. Not something thats too detailed, nor something that's plain jane.

A chair...I love that idea! is there a way to make this wood more stable and hard? it is kinda weak because of the inclusions.

It's wierd how uniform the pattern is along the diagonal lines, almost un-natural.

A chair or something smaller in scale would be good. The pattern is pretty busy, so something bigger would look a little too intense, IMHO.

Birds eye Pine

I used some to do trim on a add on room in the house and liked it so well, that I used it with a built in pantry and its trim. I then put some built in shelves in a large walk in closet used it also for trim there as well, then I stained it all golden oak. It really has impressed me! I have a good bit of it dated to the 50's and it is 1" x 12" x 8' and many are 16'. I wish I had enough projects to use it it is very nice looking!
