I would say Pitch pine or Oragon pine. One of the Victorian church woods. Pitch pine is heavy and tough to cut wood . Good luck.

Good quality red pine when stained would give a similar appearance.

Thanks for the replies ...

twothumbs: I did think of pitch pine. Is it reasonably easy to obtain ... I only need a small quantity, but I do need 2" thick.

Dodge: Is 'red pine' what is sold as 'redwood' ? I thought of this, but the stuff I've seen has quite of lot of small, dark knots.

Re: pitch pine

I thought it would be the case that the supplies wouldn't be local to me (not much is !).

Don't need that much, probably about 3m x 30cm x 50mm (i.e. 2" thick), and some 1" (not quite sure how much).

try salvage yards for pitch pine. Might be a matter of resawing a pew or something.

If you fail to find pitch pine then American yellew Pine would be a good match grain wise, bit of a colour problem tho.

Is 'American Yellow Pine' = 'Southern Yellow Pine' ? If so, I had been considering that (as our local 'Champions' has it, but PAR at a ridiculous price).

Yes thats the one I ment. I,d be very wary about buying it PAR tho, it does tend to cup after planing so I allways cut to near finished size first then plane up. I have a bit of quite old stock that might do you if you want to have a look. (Wantage)

Southern Y P will do it if you can stain it down somehow. It is white by comparison. Used quite a bit for stringers.

Try a local saw mill, especially one that cuts wood from a local estate, I have seen grain like this in many boards destined for timber fencing, worth a go...bosshogg :)
