Species – Domestic

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.

Workability

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

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.

Nailing: No known problems.

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 compatible with the finish to be used. Do not use water.

Comments Origin: North America. Often recovered from structural timers in pre-1900 warehouses & factories, or as sunken logs from river bottoms.
