I know there have been several threads on the subject of Douglas Fir quality - old growth vs. second growth, ring count, plantation grown vs. shade grown, etc., etc., etc. I've read them and I'm not trying to add yet another one but for my own knowledge here is a piece of 2 x 6 DF that I bought yesterday. It turns out that I'm not going to use it for the intended purpose (see my Petrel thread for the reason why) but I would very much like to know what people with experience think of the quality, if such can be determined from this photo:
What's the consensus? Good? Ok? Wouldn't use it to build a chicken coop? Currently rotting away as I sit here? Just trying to further my woodworking education a bit.
