Big pieces of pine for furniture legs?
I have asked my husband to build me a rustic bathroom vanity out of pine, so that I can weather it to the same greyed color as the pine doors in the room.
He built me a lovely southwest-style credenza out of clear fir a number of years ago, so he's game. He gets "Wood" magazine :) and he has the tools. He told me to get the materials and design it.
Here's the issue: I just found out that it is hard to find big thick pieces of pine. I had three inch (or more) square legs in mind, but I'm told they will have to be made of glued together pieces. I don't want to use fir again, since it is too orange. What do people do who build those big huge rustic pine farmhouse tables? Do they glue the wood together?
