What are the grades of Caribbean
Our rustic grade of Caribbean Heart Pine has more of its heartwood derived from sap and thus has more color variations and those gorgeous knots. Our prime grade of Caribbean Heart Pine is uniform in color over a range from golden brown to red brown heartwood to lighter brown sapwood.
Caribbean Heart Pine deepens in dark red color over time. Prime (aka Select grade)is the choice for those that want elegance. Prime grade is virtually clear of defects except occasional small pin knots. Color is more consistent and harmonious, with a high degree of red heartwood and limited sapwood.
