White pine wood is known for its knotty and rough appearance. It is normally a creamy white tone, however, it can occasionally have a yellowish hue, with the black knots providing a nice contrast.
Because of the suppleness of the wood, it takes up dents and scratches readily, making it unpopular among high-end furniture, flooring, and cabinetry artisans. Pine, on the other hand, is an excellent choice when scratch resistance isn’t a need or when a more rustic appearance is desired. Furthermore, it grows abundantly throughout the eastern part of North America, ensuring a steady supply and being one of the most cost-effective choices. White pine is one of the most prevalent and commonly utilized timbers for building materials.
Crates, boxes, interior millwork, construction lumber, carving, and boatbuilding are all common uses for this wood.
Sapwood is a pale yellow to practically white, while the heartwood is a light brown with a slightly reddish colour. With time, the colour darkens.
