Pine


Continent

Europa
Origin
Central, Northern and Eastern Europe
Range
Pine is the most common species of tree in the world. Its subspecies are found from the Arctic Circle to the mountain regions in the tropics. Most used species for the production of veneer in Central Europe are the Common Pine (pinus sylvestris) and in the Southern Europe the Maritime Pine ( pinus pinaster ). Known as veneer wood in the USA are primarily the Carolina Pine (either pinus echinata or pinus taeda) or the Oregon Pine (trade name for Douglas Fir, although not actually a Pine species).

Properties

The heartwood is reddish-yellow to brownish-red and darkens in time. Typical for the wood are irregular annual rings and pressure wood.

Machining

Working Pine by hand or machine presents no problem. It is easy and clean to work with all tools and its surface is unusually smooth for a soft wood.

Seasoning
Dries rapidly without any problems. There is only a slight tendency toward checking and warping. Pine sapwood is very susceptible to blue stain and sufficient air circulation must always be ensured .

Finishing

Due to the resin content surface treatment is slightly limited. To be recommended are open pore varnishes or washing out the resin with wood soap.

Jointing

Pine is well suited for any type of joint, with adequate tightening strength.
