A long leaf pine with very beautiful grain that looks similar to the old long leaf heart pine of the southern US.
Flat sawn this material takes on a very curly and sometimes quilted grain. Quarter sawn material will be very straight and sometimes looks like light colored zebra wood.
Either way, this material is stunning and very tight and strong. Much heavier than the North American varieties.
Just got to the point where I am using the santa Maria. It is great!
