Ponderosa Pine (Pinus ponderosa) is a yellow wood varying from deep yellow to reddish-brown. The tree ia a relatively large tree, grows to a height of up to 130 feet with a trunk up to 48" in diameter. The wood works easily and well with little blunting effect on cutters. It can be glued satisfactorily, takes nails and screws, stains and gives reasonable results in painting and varnishing if treated for gumminess. Typical uses are for furniture, doors, turning, carving, and general carpentry. Pine's source region is the Western United States and Canada.
