Good pine doesn't splotch (IMHE)
It's the fast grown stuff, fresh off the tree and still full of
unstable resin, that's the worst for splotching and bleeding.
(OK, all pine splotches - but slow-grown, or especially old recycled
stuff, is nothing like so bad)
Just bought one of those at Rockler this weekend (along with a
no-brand tenon jig), so I'm following the discussion avidly.
Where I am I would try putting the wood outside overnight -- it would
be stone-hard in the morning. Anyone tried that?
