I cut it up to glue it and was very surprised, it still had sap in it. I doubted it was that old, but was told than the yellow pine does that??????

Beautiful vase, Ron!

We call it yellow pine here, too. I got a piece of timber from a building put up in 1817. The whole shop smelled like Christmas when I cut into it.

Dan, my  house in OH was made of Oak, very hard old rough sawn Oak. 2x6 actually measured more like 3x8 and so on. When I put a rec room in.................I had to  predrill for every nail. My father-in-law was a carpenter all his life and knew how to hammer in a nail. He was the only person I ever saw that could get one in without bending it and he couldn't do it each time, he bent a few too.
