Greg, if you're referring to me, Cuprinol is green like Festool and technically you are required to treat any exposed cuts.  Do most carpenters?  No, but down the line, there could be potential exposure for biting you in the a s s.

Sorry Ken  it was just a general open comment about blue wood.

I would also wonder about the effect of blue wood on people that are sensitive to chemicals?

Greg,

The Blue Man Group has shown no ill effects other than a lack of something to say.  [big grin]

You can get red 2x1 that's used for roofing battens (to tile onto). Means it's treated and the building inspector can just look at the colour and know you've bought the right stuff !

btw, is the advice on the show pretty spot on or is there a lot of tv wizardry?

My biggest issue with the show is that none of their carpenters seem to own a hammer or a nail gun- they screw everything together.  I've seen them screw deck framing together (even with hangers), screw studs to plates, etc.  I don't know about the codes up there in Canada, but here in the US, the IRC doesn't allow screws for those applications.

Screws hold stronger, and they last a lot longer than nails.
