Not Georgia. I have lots of North Central Florida Old Growth Heart Pine from about 1870 if it would you.

I got some old growth Georgia pine some time ago from a friend who is a retired furniture maker. I recently got an order for some pens with this wood from The Georgia Forestry Association. I have just enough to finish this order but I will only have a couple left. I contacted my friend but he said that he didn't have any more. I placed this Want and then my friend contacted me and said he had an old dresser in his basement that was made from this wood. I will get that dresser from him after the first of the year and will probably have some old growth Georgia pine for sale.
This is a sample of that wood:

FWIW, I have a garage full of old growth SYP that was the paneling inside my entire house. It was in literally every single room in here when we moved in.
I took it down because it had become kind of dark from the shellac yellowing from old age.
It's all 3/4" thick, random widths, and has some fancy molding carved in it.
Tongue & groove, but that can be cut off.
