Bandsawn (rough) Eastern White Pine from HD

2 8' boards almost make 3 8FD's with enough left over for feeding shims or framing out some bottom boards.

Remember to use the planed wood to set the depth of cut on the finger joints, rather than the one scrap piece that never went through the planer. :) Hooray for belt sanders, because I am definitely not planing those fingers by hand with the nails in place :)

Not sure if the videos will work from here, but they are interesting. I don't usually get to see this view from the saw in my own shop :)

HD meaning Home Depot? I Wonder if you could buy some from a local Lumber Maker? Wouldn't that be nice. There is a fellow beekeeper that also cuts his own lumber on a channel (Fall Line Ridge). He has some interesting videos.
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

When I still lived in Charlottesville, I had 3 local mills including Northland Forest products. Unfortunately, where I live now, I am hard pressed to find a mill. AAMOF I am an hour from a decent wood working store, and most places that sell real wood are more than 30 miles away and only open during banker's hours. :)

I would love to have access to properly dried (kiln or otherwise) rough lumber. But at $1 / BF the HD stuff is acceptable.
