37 years ago

every once in a while, if you've been making things a long time, you stumble on something you made a long time ago that you have maybe forgotten about.  like this door above ... made it in 1978, 37 years ago.  all heart, eastern white pine, no finish, no rot, outside, facing east no less, and sound as a dollar.  the owner and i agree that when you've got good pine installed in a vertical orientation, the very best and longest lasting finish is no finish at all ...
18 years and counting on the wood shop, center, 15 years on the finish room, right, and the new pine on the metal shop, 2013.  no finish, except for paint on the window trim ..
