Pine

 

Botanical name: Pinus spp. Grows in: North America & Asia.

Color: Heartwood is yellow after cutting & turns deep pinkish tan to warm reddish brown within weeks due to high resin content. Sapwood remains yellow, with occasional blue-black sap stain.

Dense, a lot of nots, with high figuring. Plainsawn is swirled; rift- or quartersawn is primarily pinstriped. Curly or burl grain is rare.

Moderate color variation.

Durability: Above average.

Hardness/Janka: Janka:1225; (5% softer than Northern red oak).

Dimensional Stability: Values can vary greatly due to the variety of species and ages used.

Workability: Good machining and hand-tooling qualities, and nailing. Tendency to clog paper due to high resin content; Abrasives will need to be changed frequently during sanding. Beginning with a coarse grade is recommended.

May be difficult to stain. To reduce the wood's tendency to repel finish coats, surface resins may be removed with a 100% pure (not recycled) solvent that is compatibel with the finish to be used. Do not use water.
