(With apologies to Raftermonkey’s thread today)
I often see the ends of milled lumber spray-painted with various colors of spray paint. Usually, and most often, I see medium blue, red, orange, and mint green. A lot of my lumber is up in the racks with the spray-painted ends showing. BUT....most of my red oak is blue, some is orange. Most of my hard white maple is mint green or dark brown, but I also have some poplar and ash painted that same mint green color.
Do I just ignore this color coding, for not making sense to me? Do the colors mean anything at all? Might it be for grading, rather than species? Help!
