Hey guys, I just thought I'd share some lessons I learned while working with reclaimed heart pine that was old when your grandpappy was in diapers.

Lesson #1 - Don't try to chisel out hinge mortises by hand... you might as well be trying to cut steel with a wood chisel... use a router for most of it and the chisel to just clean it up.

Lesson #2 - Never use a brad nailer to nail into narrow pieces of heart pine... the brad will curve and shoot out the side :censored:
