Lots of you are reporting that you’re working on Eastern White Pine projects while in quarantine and isolation. We can’t wait to see how your projects evolve in the weeks to come. Keep ’em coming!

No jointer, no planer, no problem. Starting to mill the top for the Pandemic Desk. It's Eastern White Pine, which isn't as hard as I'd like for a desk top, but I picked up the wood a day or two before our stay at home order took effect. Beggars can't be choosers and all that. Meanwhile, can we talk about how jazzed I am to have a supplier for 18" wide kiln-dried Eastern White Pine 20 minutes from my house? Yeah, we didn't have that in Somerville, MA. On the down side, I'm missing @tastymomo, @tenochmexican, and @reliable_market (and their killer beer selection), and my nearest Woodcraft is *still* the one in Woburn. Except it's 2 hours away now. #pandemicdesk #myarmsaretired #handtoolwoodworking #easternwhitepine #pinusstrobus #stanleyplane #jackplane #woodworking #woodworker #customfurniture #furnituremaker #vermontwoodworker

Harvested pine needles to make some much needed ginger pine needle cough syrup! These are some hard times and we gotta stock up! Also made elderberry cough syrup! Feeling super accomplished today!!! – – You can put this pine syrup in your morning tea, to help boost your immune system and help fight against colds. The weather is so up and down lately, the people in my house hold keep getting sick so this is the perfect time to have a little help in your everyday routine! – – #greenwitch #harvest #herbal #pineneedle #pine #easternwhitepine #backyard #fun #friends #togetherness #againstthegrain #love #honey #rawhoney #elderberry #elderberrysyrup #coughsyrup #foraging #apothacary #downtime #covid_19 #docmartens @docmartensshoes @drmartensofficial
