Yellow Pine Cut to Size
Estimated dispatch 15/12/2023
Although Southern Yellow Pine is a relatively soft, low-strength timber, its real attributes lie in its visual appeal. The wood itself consists of a medium to coarse texture and a beautiful straight grain that makes it suitable for a wide range of gorgeous furniture, flooring and joinery projects.
This wood is moderately easy to work, but the resin can be troublesome, tending to clog saw teeth and stick to machine tables.
Takes glues, nails and screws well and can be finished to a high standard. The high contrast produced by the colour of the growth rings makes this wood a particularly beautiful choice for a wide range of practical and creative applications.
Name: Pinus palustris
Country of Origin: Sourced from southern states of the US, they’re typically found along East Texas to South Virginia coastal plain and into central Florida. The timber is derived from an evergreen conifer that thrives in most habitats but prefers dry, sandy and acidic soil types.
Uses: Joinery, stairs, benches, chairs, baskets, pallets, woodenware utensils, cutlery, plates and tableware.
Woodshop’s Preferred Finish: Osmo 3044 Raw, Rustins Wood Dye
Durability: Slightly Durable (5 - 10 years)
Density: 670 Density (Kg/m³)
Colour(s): The heartwood is a reddish brown colour with well-marked reddish-brown growth rings and the sapwood is yellow-white.
The Timber: This southern states softwood is fairly low strength, physically soft and light in weight with a straight grain, a medium to coarse texture and a resinous quality. The characteristic straight grain makes it suitable for a wide range of beautiful furniture, flooring and joinery projects. The high contrast produced by the colour of the growth rings makes this wood a particularly beautiful choice for a wide range of practical and creative applications.
Strength: The timber itself is soft, lightweight and lower in density but does offer some durability. The heartwood is also known for being moderately resistant to decay and the relative softness of the wood will make it very suitable for an array of interior projects, tools and furniture.
Working Qualities: Yellow Pine responds well to most woodworking tools and takes glues, nails and screws well, finishing to a high-quality standard. Extra care may need to be taken due to the resinous content of the wood, so to avoid saw teeth and sandpaper clogging or machine table sticking, ensure that you have high-grade tools and materials to hand and make necessary preparations prior to the woodworking process.

Exactly as described, thank you - we've been able to ressurect some old shelves and use the new wood to complete them.

I recently purchased 2 replacement floorboards. I had previously butchered some old scaffolding planks to the extent that the job looked worse than a hit and run accident. Woodshopdirect put up with an initial inaccuracy in an order and were hot on their communication. They also got in touch with me and gave the haulage company a seeing to when they didn’t deliver on time. The product is outstanding and I couldn’t rate the company highly enough.

Quality wood delivered on time & to correct sizes

Yes, it's yellow pine, but it was such good quality - I'd grown used to the terrible fast-grown offerings from big chain DIY shops, that I'd forgotten that pine could be this nice - it is destined for several big shelves and window sills - thank you!
