Antique wood possesses a lustre and patina that just can’t be compared to freshly milled wood. Goodwin wood is certified to be at least 200 years old, with grading standards that are top in the industry. Longleaf pine standards were last (Antique HeartPine) in 1924 and the minimum standard requirement was at least 6 growth rings per inch. Goodwin heartpine has 8 growth rings per inch with 100% heart content guaranteed. The heartwood is what makes antique heart pine so hard and durable.
