I'm re-doing my shop and needed some 2x4's for some storage bin frames. I visited my local Home Despot to see what they had in stock. They stock 2x4's in KD (kiln dried), green, fir, treated and 'whitewood'.
So, my question is... what is whitewood?? Is it the contractors equivelant of 'mystery-meat??' I've got to say that it was nice and clean; creamy white in color with very few knots and no splinters. It was perfect for the work I was doing, but I have no idea of its structural strength as opposed to the standard 'knots with a bit of pine between 'em' that HD usually stocks. No one there knew exactly wat it IS. Any answers?? Wild guesses??
