yea, normal pine, yellow pine is almost the top grade pine available, pitch pine is better, but this (in a woods manual) beats some of the hardwoods. i think its harder than walnut. i must have a poke about for that manual.

Also, hardwood and softwood, in lumber jargon, refers to whether the tree is an evergreen or not. If it an evergreen, it is a softwood. If it drops its leaves, like balsa, it is a hardwood.

It has nothing to do with the actuall hardness of the wood itself.
