well good thing my house is in lil farm town with about 200 people, a bank and a bar, lol. I actually think it will tie into the whole house. i plan on using alot of pine wainscot and maybe some carsiding on the ceilingPine alway comes across as cabinets better in rural areas than urban.
And yer right P.K...the stuff smells GREAT when freshly planed!!!!:thumbsup:

With reference to the shrinkage factor, the best thing to do is to rough cut your boards a little oversize, and store them in the house for a couple of months to let them acclimatise. This is assuming that the boards where relatively dry to start with.The panels can then be cut to size, and fitted. There will still be changes to the wood, as the seasons, and relative humidity change, but if the boards are seasoned in the home you should be at a good start point.Is there anything wrong with using pine for kitchen cabinets? For some reason i really like the look of clear pine with natural stain. I was thinking of pine carcasses with face frames and then pine doors with beadlock. Any one try this?
