My Home Depot Gets the Most KILLER Pine!

Recommended Posts

So this is gunna sound a bit weird... but every time I go into this one Home Depot near me (not often as it's not my closest, just close) I end up walking out with a board of pine that I'll use on a guitar some day. It's not weird though because without fail this particular store seems to regularly get some absolutely killer pine?! The last two times I've gone in there I've gotten quilted pine, and then yesterday, birdseye pine!? Nuts!

Here's the quilt from awhile back:

And the birdseye version from yesterday!

All this for the usual ~$3/bdft price? Count me in hahahaha.

I've seen Pine like that go through a few times. Often it doesn't because it can be regarded as a fault during grading. The cloudy-looking stuff looks heavy....a bit pitch-heavy?

your post lingered in my mind while I was at my local HD picking up a new grass edger blade. While not as deep as the figuring on your piece- I was surprised to see this. I had to dig in the pile  bit. that is about 8" wide and for ~$20 i can get two tops out of it. I see a thinline type pinecaster at some point in the future

Interesting that both of those boards are flatsawn from very similar locations of the log.
