Collection: Douglas Fir

Pseudotsuga menziesii, Douglas fir, is one of the world’s most valuable and important species and is the state tree of our native state, Oregon. Pseudotsuga means false hemlock. It is used for anything from structural timbers, veneer for architectural uses, plywood, paper, furniture and guitar tops, to artisan projects. The wood has warm tones ranging from tan to warm golden/red between the summer and winter growth rings. It is somewhat difficult to turn with moderate workability because the winter growth is denser than the summer so some tear out can occur in between these layers. Sanding with a coarse grit sandpaper and then progressively finer grits will have favorable results. The warmth and richness of Douglas Fir has made it extremely popular worldwide.
