Best Answer

A knothole is a flaw found in lumber. It is caused by a branch that grows out of the tree. The knothole tends to be a different color, usually much darker. Because the grains are different, they can make the wood difficult to work with. The knothole may even fall out of the lumber as it dries, leaving a natural hole in the wood. If someone where to call you a knothole, they are saying your are flawed, like the wood.
