Pinus spp.

Top Portion is finished with water-base finish; bottom with oil-based finish

Appearance

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.

Grain: Dense, with high figuring. Plainsawn is swirled; rift- or quartersawn is primarily pinstriped. Curly or burl grain is rare.

Variations Within Species And Grades: Moderate color variation.

Properties

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

Sawing/Machining: Good machining and hand-tooling qualities.

Nailing: No known problems.

Sanding: 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.

Finishing: 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
