If you can't drill and can't nail, isn't it too hard to cut for dovetail construction? Or you cut it when still wet?
i hate stores that keep their lumber in a heated building
that's the worst place in the world for lumber that hasn't sat for a year yet
they do dry kiln it, but that's just not as good as air drying
i have some 42" wide northern white pine planks that are round edge
i'm thinking coffee tables
lumber that wide is really tough to find even way up here in NH
i'll make a couple & if they sell i'll make more
i have the whole butt log that's 10" long sitting out back all stuck & ready to go
