Our HD sells only KD Spruce and SYP. In the past year they’ve also started selling Fir that seems to be wet and heavy and I don’t mess with it.

Just this past week I bought a Spruce 2×6 12 feet long from our HD to match a table leg, I glued it up to make a 4 inch leg and turned it yesterday. It was very dry and turned beautifully for such a soft wood. It sanded out smooth except in a couple of places and a small amount of speckling paste fixed that.

The 2×4’s are no different than the 2×6’s and I’ve never had any problems with them.
