Sinker Caribbean Heart Pine

(Pinus caribbaea):

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.




Received the wood yesterday and it is amazing! My wife is already asking if I can make some furniture out of it instead of a guitar. I guess I may be calling you in the future for another project : ).
