Knotty Pine Wood is among some of the most beautiful woods in the world. It has many applications in home building, paneling, trim, and furniture making. This type of softwood is characterized by:
- Lightweight and straight grain
- Fine and even texture throughout
- Small, tight knots that do not fall out
- Lighter color with light orange accents
- Stable and durable nature
Knotty pine wood planks were popular in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s for kitchen and living room paneling. At that time many kitchen cabinets were also pine with a honey finish. During the next three decades pine paneling lost its appeal in traditional homes, but not in log cabins and log houses.
Today, natural knotty pine has made a roaring comeback, and demand for this beautiful wood is high. Because they are continuously grown on tree farms, White and Northern Pine are considered sustainable woods. You cannot go wrong with knotty pine wood planks in your cabin or home.

Natural Knotty Pine Tongue and Groove Paneling Benefits
One of the significant advantages of natural knotty pine wood planks is the tongue and groove and end-matching features for paneling. With this product, you no longer need to purchase long boards and splice them on studs. This old way of covering walls and ceilings is time–consuming and wastes a lot of wood.
Tongue and groves on both sides and ends of boards let them lock together tightly anywhere between the studs. Install them with a nail gun along the groove and the nails will never be seen. This is another benefit of modern pine paneling over former installation processes that allowed nail and screw heads to show. There is no need to putty over nail or screw heads with natural Knotty Pine tongue and groove paneling.

“We received the KP Paneling today and started installing it on our ceiling. I wanted to tell you we are very happy and pleased with it! My fiancé has been a builder for 25+ years, and he was very happy with what we received! We were initially “a little weary” of ordering wood products over the internet from such a far distance–but I can say I’m glad we did and I will surely recommend your website to our friends.”
“I just recently finished installing the 5” T&G I purchased from you in September. I injured my back right after receiving your product and was delayed several months. I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic product your company puts out. Only a couple of boards damaged in shipping and was even able to use them before I was done. The small amount of waste was incredible. Virtually no knot holes fell out. Just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with your product. I have attached a couple photos. Thank you”
