I’m just getting started in woodworking, so please forgive my ignorance. I am planning to build a workbench from an article and plans I found on the internet. The article says that the writer built his workbench from southern yellow pine 2×4’s. So I go to the local home center, and they do have southern yellow pine, but in 1″ thicknesses. The 2×4’s they stock are labeled as being green Douglas fir.
Now, I know that Douglas fir is a type of pine. These 2×4’s seem oriented towards construction framing.
1. Would this “green Douglas fir” be okay for use in building a workbench?
2. Do I have to worry about the “green” part, in that it may not be dried sufficiently for a project?
