Dealing with Knots, Cracks and Splits in Pine
Unless you are prepared to fork out a fortune for hardwood, SA pine is more than likely what you will be working with and you need to know how to fix knots so that they don't spoil a project.
When making your own furniture and accessories, especially if you are a beginner woodworker or not yet fully confident with your skills, working with SA pine is going to be your choice of wood, unless you are prepared to fork out for Meranti or a more expensive hardwood species.
Even if you do buy expensive hardwoods, there's no guarantee that you won't come across knots in the wood, no matter what type of wood you purchase.
Pine, unfortunately, while easy to work with and reasonably inexpensive, comes with its own unique problems, the most common of which is knots in the wood.
