Are there any problems that may arise due to mixing softwood and hardwood in making a glued up panel work piece?
I made this test panel last night with scrap pine and hardwood salvaged from a piece of hardwood I found.
I may use it as drawer front in our cottage bunk house, which is in an environment that may be hard on it. Unheated in very cold dry winters. Very humid periods in summer and about 50 ft from ocean.
- this panel is 39" long
- 1/2" thick
- lighter wood strips are knotty pine 1" wide (but no visible knots in these strips)..
- hardwood is oak, and they are 1/2" wide strips
