Sugar pine?

Rate this topic

13 posts in this topic

used a lot for carving birds and such

 

i have seen it grown in a nursery for sale as an ornamental

 

we ended up cutting a few down, and the space between the annual rings is huge- it grows very fast

 

my guess would be it does not crack too readily when treated right, and is soft

I use it. About 6 bucks a board foot for the top grade stuff (which is similar or cheaper than AYC bannisters I think). Leaks pitch if you heat set your createx. Quite soft and dents easily. Eastern (not southern) yellow pine is also very good. You are going to have to buy it in planks and slice it to size.

I have an opportunity to buy six year old, stored inside, 5/4 saw ends from a frame builder for 50 cents a board foot. Trouble is, I have to but 1000 board feet to get it

Anyone interested into jumping in on this deal? I'll see what I can arrange.

The wood costs more to ship than it cost to buy.

Turned out that it was mostly 5/4 anyway. I like 6/4 myself.

Like you I'm still looking.

See my new thread. If I locate some I'll be in touch.
