Question About Pine Table
I don't really know a lot about wood working but I received as a gift an antique pine harvest table. I understand that pine really isn't the ideal table surface, but I like the history of the table and want to use it in my kitchen. However, the two base pieces of the harvest table have been damaged by a dog, I think, and I wanted to replace them. They are 4x4 pine posts.
I was just going to go the hardware store and buy some, but then I read online that wood from the hardware store often isn't dry enough for use in furniture. Not sure what to do from here... any advice?
I live in southern Canada, I don't know if that matters. We heat with wood in the winter so my home can get dry, but in the summer we don't use the A/C unless absolutely necessary so it can definitely be more humid.
