Is Pine Right for You?
Where Pine Should Be Used
As a softwood, pine isn’t typically used for cabinetry. Instead, pine can be used all over the house. Pine’s clear vertical grain makes for a great trim. A fairly knotty wood, Northern California pine also looks great in ceilings to provide a natural, custom cabin feel. We’ve also used it for flooring when home owners or contractors are looking for a distressed look. We’ve used chains and screwdrivers to scar it for that naturally distressed look before we ship the lumber.
Northern California pine is a versatile softwood that’s great for trim and moulding, ceilings and floors with a distressed look. Pine also tends to be a reasonably priced wood, adding affordable, customized style and beauty to homes. At www.sidingdirect.com, we custom mill pine into 6 foot to 16 foot lengths of high quality moulding. We can mill to most patterns up to 12″ wide, including many custom patterns.
