I am just finishing up an entertainment center for my already out of date television. I built it with wood salvaged from the walls of a barn here in New England (titletown USA). It was installed as 2 3/4″ t&g bead board. At first I was sure that it was Doug fir, but when I got back to my shop, it looked different from the piece of doug fir flooring I had laying around. The grain is more pronounced and darker,and it seems harder than the doug fir. I had enough of it that I was able to pick through it and get all the straight grain for the cabinet doors and I used the flamier, flat sawn stuff for the sides. Any way, does anybody have any guesses as to the species? Yellow pine? and does anybody have a favorite finish for this wood.?
