I used Zinsser BIN on a very knotty pine door, dabbed over the knots and then a full coat over the lot (as it was varnished and you don't need to sand if you use this as an undercoat) So far no knots have bled and as the top cpat was white I think I would have noticed them by now! So can recommend it.:)
