More and more people are using antique wood to add beauty and a relaxed feel to their home and office spaces. The trend of incorporating wood in contemporary design continues to gain popularity, thus the demand for antique longleaf heartpine is on the rise. Let’s take a look at some of the features of Goodwin’s high quality, River-Recovered® antique longleaf wood flooring and paneling:
- Whenever there is tight growth sapwood on the outer portions of a River-Recovered log, we saw it as soon as it arrives at our mill. This renders the highest quality material and conserves beautiful wood that would otherwise be lost to the elements.
- Most boards have arching grain patterns with some pinstripes on the edges. All are graded to exclude machine defects, and face checks, cracks or pitch pockets over 1/8″ wide.
- The outer boards of River-Recovered logs offer original growth longleaf heartpine with a lighter color tone and fewer knots than most antique heart pine.
- Tan pink to paler red tones; 33-50% heart; harder than today’s Southern Yellow Pine.
