Default RE: Spurce vs Basswood

Hi, I have been using doug fir flooring from my local lumber yard (tightly grained) and ripping it to the size I need in place of spruce, this is also done quite a bit with full scale hombuilders as fir is roughly 23% stronger than spruce and alot cheaper,just my 2 cents
