Recently my father and I worked at an apartment to renovate it. He brought home two pieces of 2x4. One from when the building was made in the early
1900s. The other bought recently.
They speak for themselves, however, I will say this much. My father said the size difference is because modern 2x4s are not true 2x4s, due to lack or
resources and better production methods. In addition, the newer one was bio engineered to grow faster. I would like confirmation on this.
Bellow you'll find the images. Simply a reflection for you all, as a species, to what you've done in a little over a century alone.
