I recently bought two 2"x4"x10' boards from Home Depot. They are white and seem relative light weight. I assumed they were "white" pine.
When cutting or milling they emit a nasty strong smell. Markings include "Canfor" Prime, S-P-F, #2, CMSA 110.
S-P-F stands for spruce, pine, and fir. They do not appear to be pine or fir to me. I believe they may be "White Spruce".
Has anyone ever had lumber stink when cutting it, or know what species I have?
