Heart pine which refers to the center, or non-living part of the Long Leaf Pine tree, for our inquisitive readers, takes an estimated 30 years per inch of growth. Because of mass deforestation in the early 1900’s, the best example of this wood is from reclaimed timbers.

The painted glass door which enters into the master bedroom closet, is over 100 years old. It was a library door with cast brass hardware.
