Pine is an inexpensive, lightweight wood that can be yellowish or whitish with brown knots. It's often used for rustic pieces, like farmhouse-style tables. Pine develops a nice, rustic patina from age and use, but because it is quite soft it is prone to dents and scratches overtime.
Because pine grows in most areas of the Northern Hemisphere, it is typically quite easy to source. Worldwide, there are more than 100 species.
Pine is often used for country or provincial furniture.
Pine is a soft, white or pale yellow wood which is lightweight, and straight-grained. It is resistant to shrinking and swelling. Knotty pine is often used for decorative effect. Pickled, whitened, painted and oil finishes are often used on this wood.
