A seamless wood texture with knotted timber boards arranged in a cubic pattern


A seamless wood texture with knotted timber arranged in a cubic pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1512 x 2620 mm (59.5 x 103.1 inches) in total, with each individual board measuring approximately 215 x 65mm. The joints are filled with fine lime mortar and are 3 mm (0.1 inches) in width.

Knotted wood is any wood which contains a high proportion of knots. Knots occur in wood where branches are present in the source tree. Knots negatively affect the strength of wood and make it more difficult to work with. Wood with many knots is therefore generally graded lower than a comparable species with less knots. The resulting irregular pattern within the grain is a desirable product for some, and hence is used commonly in architecture and construction. Wood products containing knots can be polished, weathered, or smoothed, and can be stained to create a variety of finishes. Knotted timber is used in cladding, facades, flooring, landscape decking, and interior design.

This texture is an example of a rhombille pattern, also known as cubic or tumbling blocks. The rhombille pattern contains a series of rhombi positioned in groups of three to collectively form a hexagon shape, giving the appearance of a cube in isometric perspective. It's commonly used for parquetry and in ceramic tile patterns among other applications.

This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
