Reclaimed Eastern White Pine Lumber Flooring
Reclaimed eastern white pine is a softer wood with coloration ranging from a light blonde to deep amber. Traditionally associated with the New England farmhouse, this unpretentious reclaimed wood provides an ambiance of warmth and comfort offered by few other species.
Once felled in near-entirety throughout New England and beyond, old growth white pine is now a particularly rare and coveted lumber – especially in the traditional wider-plank format. Virgin white pine has been aggressively harvested since the colonial era, when the British Royal Navy infamously requisitioned particularly fine specimens for use as masts. Today, white pine is farmed, but is sawn for lumber as quickly as possible, giving it an entirely different look and feel than product milled from salvaged old-growth timber.
Longleaf mills white pine floor boards in two distinct grades: Bright-Planed White Pine and Skip-Planed White Pine. Both are milled in square-edge profile, with widths from 4”-14”. These boards are generally milled to 3/4” thickness and 2’-14’ lengths. Extra wide plank floorboards can be milled to order.
Our Bright-Planed White Pine flooring is a resurfaced product milled from antique boards and/or beams. It includes light checking, occasional nail holes and knots, and presents diverse visual elements of character and use.
Skip-Planed White Pine retains some of the texture and tone of its’ original patina. This product has a more rustic look overall than Bright-Planed White Pine. Expect occasional knots and nail holes, saw kerf marks, and various rustic elements. The tone of Skip-Planed flooring varies a great deal and is generally darker than Bright-Planed flooring.
