This is a plank cut product, not the wedge cut product. It's my opinion that the wedge cut is a better product for several reasons. Main reason is because it is closer to the finished profile than this plank cut, and therefore less chance to find hidden defect when carving, and has better symmetry for the same reason. Regarding growth lines per inch. It varies from log to log and even quadrants of logs can have different textures. It's all old growth FOR SURE. Because old growth is all we harvest and cut. Most are fine texture 14-24 lines per inch, but Some tops can have looser texture and be 10-14 lines per inch. We don't grade by number of growth lines, but by the the consistency of the texture or gradual opening of growth lines across the board.. And color evenness is also a grade criteria. There won't be defects in the pattern-able area, unless it is obvious that the defect will be carved away during shaping the soundboard.
