PINE, MISC

Pinus spp.

Pinus spp. of the family Pinaceae, the pine family

there are something just under 8 zillion kinds of pine and I have broken out only ponderosa pine, radiata pine, white pine, yellow pine and a couple of others with their own pages on this site and what's below is everything else that I have on pine. To see an extensive list of the species in the genus Pinus, see:


A NOTE ABOUT PINES IN THE USA

END GRAIN UPDATE from directly above


a couple of shots taken at a lumber yard of planks labeled just "pine" with no species designation or even a more descriptive common name (like "yellow", or "white", or "whothehellknows").


some planks shot at LOWES. These just were labeled "select pine". These pics have a very faint purplish tinge that was not in the wood. The pics directly below, although taken at a different time, are more like what this wood actually looked like


more Lowes shots --- the first is regular pine and the 2nd is "select"; no species designation was given and extreme enlargements are present


an old chunk of pine/larch/fir that I've been using in shop jigs. I happened to notice the most recent time refreshed the end grain that it had the classical "normal" grain indentation that occurs in a few softwoods. It might be Ponderosa pine since that wood is known for having the indentations. Both leves of enlargements are present.



The Wood Book pics


flat cut, quartersawn, end grain
pinyon pine (Pinus monotphylla, also listed as single-leaf pinyon pine and nut pine) from The Wood Book --- both levels of enlargement are available for each of the 3 views


flat cut, quartersawn, end grain
Norway pine (Pinus resinosa, also listed as red pine) from The Wood Book --- both levels of enlargement are available for each of the 3 views


flat cut, quartersawn, end grain
Cuban pine (Pinus cubensis) from The Wood Book --- both levels of enlargement are available for each of the 3 views. This wood is listed in The Wood Book as slash pine, swamp pine, bastard pine, and meadow pine, and NOT Cuban pine, but other references seem to agree that it is Cuban pine and grows only in Cuba so I'm puzzled by its inclusion in The Wood Book and also by all these other common names, which only show up in MY data base with other botanical names.

sugar pine (Pinus lamberitana) from The Wood Book --- both levels of enlargement are available for each of the 3 views

flat cut, quartersawn, end grain
pitch pine (Pinus rigida) from The Wood Book --- both levels of enlargement are available for each of the 3 views. I find this combination of common name / botanical name a bit strange since my database shows 8 different Pinus species that use the name pitch pine and pine, misc.htm rigida is not one of them AND my database shows that in Australia and a few other countries, pine, misc.htm rigida IS called pitch pine. BUT ... The Wood Book is supposedly only about American woods, so I'm puzzled.


flat cut, quartersawn, end grain
Jersey pine (Pinus inops, also listed as scrub pine) from The Wood Book --- both levels of enlargement are available for each of the 3 views.


flat cut, quartersawn, end grain

web pics:

Having broken out a few of the pine species/types with pages of their own (Ponderosa, Radiata, white, yellow, etc) I have now split up this remaining batch into a few groups and then a "misc" catchall


BLACK PINE
CYPRUS PINE
EASTERN PINE
MARITIME PINE
NORWAY PINE
SCOTCH / SCOTS PINE
MISC OTHER PINE





BLACK PINE

NOTE: although several species in the genus Pinus have "black" as all or part of one or more of their common names, usually the name is only applied to Pinus nigra


planks listed as black pine / Pinus nigra




CYPRUS PINE

NOTE: both Pinus brutia and Pinus halepensishave the common name (among others) Cyprus pine and there may be more.


planks listed as Cyprus pine / Pinus halepensis




EASTERN PINE

NOTE: this is often called Eastern white pine and American white pine and it is Pinus strobus


planks listed as Eastern pine / Pinus strobus


planks all from the same vendor, listed as Eastern pine / Pinus strobus




MARITIME PINE

only Pinus pinaster uses the common name maritime pine



maritime pine (Pinus pinastre) flat cut and end grain


maritime pine flat cut, quartersawn, end grain


maritime pine planks




NORWAY PINE

NOTE: only Pinus resinosa has the common name Norway pine



Norway pine planks




SCOTCH / SCOTS PINE
(the names are equivalent)




end grain


Scots / Scotch pine plank


planks listed as Scots or Scotch pine / Pinus sylvestris


Scots pine veneer, 2 flat cut pieces and a quartersawn piece




MISCELLANEOUS OTHER PINE SPECIES




aleppo pine with heavy resin streaks


sugar pine carving blocks


sugar pine plank


aromatic Swiss pine veneer


blue pine planks


silver pine planks


carolina pine veneer


denim pine plank


jack pine plank


pine and knotty pine planks


knotty pine veneer


Russian pine plank


red pine plank


sugar pine planks


swedish pine plank


plank listed as arve / Pinus cembra --- arve is an alternate common name for what is more commonly called Swiss pine or alpine pine


spalted pine


this was listed as "spalted" but the owner commented on the fact that the tree had been in a fire and it appears to me that this is not spalting at all but discoloration due to the fire


three views of a pine plank that is VERY heavy in small-branch incursions. So much so in fact that the man who sent me these pics, Craig Bingman (thanks Craig) said some folks he showed it to called it, tongue in cheek, "bird's eye pine". We're not even positive that it IS pine (it was being sold at a lumber yard as "whitewood" which is not a very helpful designation, although it IS used for some forms of pine, most particulary Eastern white pine).


planks just labeled pine


just labeled pine veneer





dresser made from what the artisan called "spotted" pine, which is (as far as I am aware) just a form of pine that sometimes happens where TONS of small ingrown branches leave "bird's eye like" marks in the wood. As you can see from the closeup (which has an enlargement present), this is a particularly nice form of this wood, and its use in the dresser is just outstanding.


bowls just labeled as pine


vases with blue stain


bowl made from saplted pine


bowl just listed as "pine" --- looks just like a spittoon except it's not deep enough
