Keep in mind that sometimes grades are combined (Select & Better, Second and Better, etc.) or are a mix of two standard grades (No. 1 Common, No. 2 Common, etc.).
This is the highest grade of pine. The color is uniform without any knots or defects.
All characters found in this wood are permitted. This may include larger knots, light yellow sapwood and darker heartwood.
A mix of heartwood and sapwood provides a rustic, multi-faceted look. Knots of various sizes are permitted.
