Pinewood is popularly used for furniture because of its nice, light appearance and beautiful grain. It is classified as a softwood (unlike oak which is a very hard wood). This material has a reputation of being highly susceptible to denting and scratches, but it is actually not as sensitive as many people think. Pinewood furniture can certainly be made to last with proper finish, care and treatment.
As a building and construction material, pinewood is widely abundant and is less expensive than other wood variants, making it an economical choice for furniture makers. It can be made into exquisite antique style furnishings with the proper stains and varnishes. It is an affordable substitute for heavier wood furniture, making it more practical for daily use compared to heavier antique wood furnishings. Pinewood also readily blends with other wood varieties to easily mix and match different types of wood pieces together. It is easy to work with and can be made into high-quality furnishings using basic tools. Many online suppliers and distributors sell genuine pine beds, dining sets, chairs, and tables. Pine is a light and sturdy wood ideal for these applications. With the right finishing techniques, it can be made into very beautiful pieces with nice grain lines that can be accentuated with the proper stain or varnish.
