I know pine is a pretty soft wood, and I haven't seen anyone on this forum talk about using it basically at all, but I'd like to know if there is a reason for that. Is it just completely useless? The reason I ask is because I came across some nice sheets of 2" (1 1/2"/38mm true) thick pine that I was hoping were somewhat useful for slingshot construction. Should I forget it entirely, or is the thickness of it enough to consider? Thanks!
