HEART PINE CVG pinus palustris
Used to build the industrial revolution, Longleaf Yellow Pine was said to have been the south best kept secret. It was used in almost every industry from shipbuilding to making payments to rebuilding cities after the great fires. This wood was very desirable for its structural strength and integrity and durability.
It was almost entirely wiped out but now I’m mostly found from reclaiming old buildings. This wood has the warmest tones and feelings that can liven up any room in the house. We offer three grades; clear vertical grain (CVG), select plank and Mill run
Clear vertical grain (CVG) or quarter-sawn is a cut type that makes the grain of the wood stand on end (45 to 9 degrees) which makes it extremely durable. This is also the most stable cut because it’s more resistant to the effects of humidity and temperature. It is cut from the heart of the wood and has growth rings that are uniform in color. Some of its characteristics include: occasional small tight knot, occasional small nail hole.
