is the most common type of pine used in this country. It is cheap and
relatively easy to work with although it does have a tendency to go
"banana" or split even when treated properly. Suitable for all
furniture making and general joinery use, it can also be used in painted
furniture. Pine usually has a high water content and this can
cause problems in modern, centrally heated homes once the furniture
begins to dry causing shakes and splits to occur.
