Pine is somewhat plain, with a little grain pattern. It's amber coloured, with some streaks of brown. For this reason, most woodworkers choose knotty pine for cabinets, trim and special projects. Knotty pine is full of knots, swirls, defects and colour variations. It's perfect for cabinets, furniture and trims with a complex array of features that add character to the project. Most cabinetmakers rely on plywood to build cabinets. However, many cabinetmakers and furniture builders glue solid pine panels together, instead of plywood, to build cabinets. Others use plywood which is readily available and cheap combined with pine lumber to build face frames for cabinets.

With a variety of applications that include paper manufacturing, mouldings, construction lumber, furniture, floors and cabinets, pine could be considered one of the most widely used domestic softwoods on the market.Redwood Pine can be easily machined, sawn and nailed.
