The clean face, southern yellow pine, AKA heart pine, exemplifies the amazing tight grain quality of this old growth. It is an extremely durable lumber - comparable to any hardwood as far as toughness and stability are concerned. It is a beautiful wood, ranging from a dark rich amber to various shades of golden yellow, deep- orange and red-browns.
Heart pine, with it's original, 100+ year-old face shows this amazing old growth lumber through the lens of its timeless weathering process. It adds a warm, rustic brown color over the tight vertical grains after it has been sanded and finished. The strength and structural properties of this wood really prove why it has been a well-celebrated since the early 1900's when it was first shipped to New York City.
This feature shows the old-growth southern yellow pine, sanded to lighten up the dark patina from the original face, bringing out some of those beautiful tight grains beneath the surface. It will still hold on to some of the color from the 100+ year aging process. We offer light, medium, and heavy sanding to achieve the exact color and look that interests you and best fits your needs. It will also remove the rough and splitery texture of the "as-is" original face.
Harvested from Northeast region of US. Was the primary building component in building factories during the Industrial Revolution. A great wood when you are looking for a dense grain to create a warm, rustic feel. Great for ceiling paneling.
