Whoa! You can't say most of the pine available
is junk and then say most of it isn't pine. Uhh.
Wait a minute, you just did. Spend at least 5
seconds thinking about what you said. That's in
the category o. "Taste it again for the first time."
Maybe most pine available today is junk, but it is
all pine. Or maybe most wood sold as pine is not
pine (not likely true).
The OP wasn't, at least I hope he wasn't making a
pine wardrobe out of fencing or construction grade
wood, the former being awful and the latter not
normally seen so it doesn't matter what it looks
like or what it is since the strength is the only
thing that matters. SPF, means they it is a mix
and they don't care what it looks like and they
probably don't even know what the species are.
Doesn't matter tho, he said pine, so I assume he
meant pine. What kind of pine do people buy to
make a wardrobe?
Pine also comes graded, all one species, almost like hardwood. Of course
you have to pay for the service. "B" select eastern white is a glory to
work with, but it's more expensive than maple, though it's not even the
highest appearance grade.
Difference is in knowing first, then shopping.
