Here’s a great tip I received from a reader in BC… thanks for sharing Monique.. and for sending your amazing pics!
I love your blog. You give tons of great information and tips.
Here’s a quick tip you might like to share for your Quick Tip Tuesday series.
I’ve decided to revamp the top of our iron coffee table using salvaged / reclaimed wood.
When I wasn’t sure how to tell softwood from hardwood my husband told me a quick and easy trick. Simply try to dig your fingernail into the wood (in an inconspicuous spot of course). If your nail makes a mark then you are looking at salvaged softwood. If no mark can be seen then it is hardwood.
My other (and very handy) half says knowing whether I am working with hardwood or softwood can be very important when deciding on indoor or outdoor use and varnish/sealants.
Hope you can share this tip with your readers. Keep up the beautiful and inspiring work.~ Monique
