Pumpkin Pine, Like Ted Turner Would Love

Reader Greg Peel writes: I’m glad to see that the latest issue of Woodworking Magazine is a great one like the others. I was wondering if there is color picture of the pumpkin pine samples that you did for the issue? It looks very intriguing to me. I’ve always used some version of golden oak for my pine pieces and I like their color very much, but I’m always interested to working with antique wood and achieving an aged finish on new wood.

By the way, I miss the sepia toned look of the previous issues that was so rich and beautiful.

Greg: Below is a link so you can download a color-correct image of the bucket , the image above has more brown in it than the real finish. Of course, if your monitor stinks, then it probably has too much baby-poo green in it, as well.

On your comment about the sepia color in the current issues: For the next issue we’ll be back on the same paper, our old printing press and the same color set-up. So… wish granted.
