Douglas Fir is a very
beautiful and versatile wood and has been successfully used since the 1800s as the wood of choice for so many home building
and remodeling projects. Beautiful a light pinkish color marks our high grade
Being a light colored wood makes
Douglas Fir so right for inside or outside jobs.
Also, the light color makes it work well whether it is stained, painted, or left
natural. Douglas Fir
also has some of the desirable rot resistant qualities, which allow it to be used outdoors.
McGee Lumber Company only purchases the highest quality Douglas Fir that we can
find. All our Douglas Fir is graded C or better by the independent West Coast Lumber Inspection
Bureau. This grade means that our Douglas Fir is essentially knot free (you may find an occasional
small knot in an occasional piece).
Of course we use nothing but kiln-dried
feature of McGee Douglas Fir is that it is "vertical grain" this
designation means that the
grain of the wood is very straight and parallel with the next growth ring, which creates a
quite uniform appearance and also makes the Fir less likely to warp or twist on the job.
