Is any pine good pine?
I am planning to get a portable mill and salvage what ever wood I can. Is any pine food pine? I would plan to panel my garage with it. Also, do you know of any comprehensive books on trees/woodworking uses?
100 years old.. i've seen a ficus blank but i don't remember turning any.. when i am offered green wood i take a couple of pieces... i rough it out and store it in the shavings... i've even turned sweetgum, and other then wanting to split, it made a pretty bowl.. i'll spin anything that doesn't run off when i try to drag it home.. some of my best pieces are from stock that i wasn't sure i should mess with..[/QUOTE]
