I am new to woodworking, and I'm working on a small project requiring some 2x4s.
I want to buy this one from Home Depot. Is this solid wood or engineered wood? They didn't say anything in their description. How can I find out?

"White wood" is a generic term for whatever fast-growing wood is cheapest at that time and in that place. It may be pine, fir, or occasionally even poplar (which is as fast-growing and soft as most "softwoods" despute being considered a hardwood). It will be a solid wood, though there may be cases where boards have been spliced to get useful sizes.
