Pine Furniture

Pine furniture is light in colour with dark rings and knots. It is commonly used for cabinet work, interior finishes such as flooring, and as lumber. Pine furniture can be less expensive than other types of wood and is therefore very popular. Pine is a soft wood that can be easily scratched or dented. Not necessarily a disadvantage, these marks add character to a well loved piece. Some people even pay to have these “distressed” marks added to their pine furniture.
