Jeffrey was harvested from a ranch out of San Luis Obispo. The tree fell three years ago and lay drying out for a year. It was then transferred to a mill where it was cut into slabs and has been set to cure for a year. It was planed with a chainsaw and has been planed with various hand planners. Once fully dry, it has been sanded and oiled many times over. It has been only oiled with different combinations of linseed, tung, jojaba, and sunflower oil. Bees wax has been rubbed into every grain producing a natural glow enhancing every square inch of the table. The frame is welded steel that has been cut into a custom design to shape the table providing balance and support.
John Jeffrey, a Scottish botanist who documented the species in 1852. Jeffrey Pine was initially classified as just a variety of Ponderosa Pine, but it was later discovered to be an entirely distinct species.
Jeffrey Pine has a unique resin chemistry that is unlike other pine species, which also give a pleasing scent, which is variously described as being similar to vanilla, apple, buttersctoch, and/or lemon scents. (Interestingly, pure heptane can be distilled from the resin of Jeffrey Pine, which is so explosive that it was selected as the zero point on the octane rating scale.)
Although Jeffrey Pine is technically classified as a yellow (hard) pine, it shares many characteristics with white (soft) pines, having a considerably lower density than the yellow pine species found in the eastern United States.
