...or yellow. It is a low grade timber with lots of dead knots. It is odourless, and having a clean hard surface it is very suitable for shelving.

What is it?

I used nothing but yellow pine for years. Made and sold a ton on jelly cabinets and shelves out of the stuff.

Im thinking Pine would not be classified as odorless.

Soo I'm thinking birch, but Im not sure about the loose knot bit, but still
lets say Birch....

What I was waiting for somebody to say was 'Spruce' (Picea excelsa) also known as white deal.

I'm off to count my points...
