The antique pitch-pine comes from a warehouse (°1870) in the French harbour city of Le Havre.
In the workshops of Corvelyn, nails are removed from the beams and they are sawed, dried and then planed. The floor boards are available in various widths of up to 30 cm.
Pitch-pine is a very noble type of wood that only exists in recovered wood today and can’t be mistaken for Yellowpine from Honduras, which is often mistakenly called pitch-pine in the timber trade. Because the trees in the cold regions of Canada and Alaska grow slow, the annual rings of the American Pitch-pine are very close to each other. This makes it much stronger and more beautiful than its Central American variant.
