On 12, Apr 2013 | In Douglas Fir | By shelflife
Douglas Fir is by far one of the most abundant species available as reclaimed timber. While it is not native to Ontario, it became one of the primary construction materials after the introduction of the railroads linking British Columbia back to Ontario. These majestic trees can grow to incredible sizes and beams as large as two feet by two feet are still occasionally salvaged. Typically we find boards and beams ranging in size for 1 and 3/4 inches to 16 inches thick of varying widths and lengths.
From an end-user point of view Douglas Fir is highly sought for it’s grain, colour and durability and can be used in almost any application from construction to furniture design.
