Saving it for something special. LikeLike It’s going to be the stretchers for a bench I’m building. Kind of a waste, but it’ll get a lot of use. And the offcuts should make a lovely few boxes. LikeLike I love douglas fir. I think it gets sort of a bad rap in the furniture world. But IMO no other wood takes a nicer clear finish than Fir. Bill LikeLike Comments are closed.
