    Going over to do a little work on a house & passed by 3 Norfolk Island Pines being cut down in FT Lauderdale the other day. 2 were on the ground so I took a truck load.
    The last one was coming down two days later so I alerted the troops & we took 2/3's of the tree.

    Driving by later I stopped & watched the stumps being ground up with a remote control stump grinder!!
    Way cool!! I've not seen one before.

    I never had to season any Norfolk, so am not sure what oversized blanks would be best. I plan on finishing them to the regular 3"x 6" x 1/2" IWCS size. A 4" x 5" x 8" block usually works well with the 4" side being quartersawn, allowing the 5" side to be flatsawn. The block then yields a 3/4" thick quartersawn blank from the 4" side and three - four, 3/4" flatsawn blanks of similar size.

    I wasn't going to say anything, but after reading the title again, I can't believe there would be any interest in Pine. Please don't be offended, I speak only out of ignorance. What do you use it for? Obviously turning blanks, but is Norfork any better than White pine? Post an example or two.

    Its beautiful when turned. I thought the same thing until I saw some of Lee's turnings of it.
