as I gather details of textures and patterns in wood for my image files
I remember something related: textures of home #3

I could ‘knot’pass this by without admiring your eye for this kind of detail.
Tom, I knew someone besides myself would have fun with the knot! Thank you.
The patterns on wood are fascinating. Coincidentally I was photographing knots and lines on planks today.
Olga, that is a coincidence!
Have you finished sanding the floor yet, dear?
Wait! Just one more picture.
Unlike rocks, raw wood has such a sensuous quality.
Susan, heh, I’m ever so glad not to be sanding floors.
But I believe rocks can be sensuous.
I’d forgotten those
Susan, of course I don’t expect anyone to remember them, but couldn’t help tossing in that link for we don’t usually think of rocks that way.
can you imagine: there are some German wholesalers that would not accept knotted boards from Finland. They’re happy to see that it has a label that proves trees having been grown without poisons or fertilizers, but knots are not fit for construction!
I can’t understand how would anybody be able to produce in their respective sawmills not-knotted boards.
Ripsa, I’m not sure what to say about that. If they are hardwoods, they should be okay for weight bearing applications. We have some knotty pine boards in our home for trim and covering walls in the sauna and one bathroom but not used for wall-bearing studs. It is a rustic look that is not always acceptable in higher end home design.
Imagine setting the fourth one right next to the first image in the last rocks post…
Wow, Marly, how come I didn’t see that?!!
I do think they can “talk” to each other.
Cousins do, don’t they?
