What wood species are used?

We typically use the finest Douglas Fir for it's strength and durability. Douglas Fir, which turns deep reddish brown with age, is the strongest of the available softwoods. We also work with Spruce and Pine. While not as strong as Douglas Fir they are lighter in color, turning to a rich honey tone over time. For outdoor structures we suggest cedar, as it provides better natural rot resistance. There is also a growing popularity to use recycled timbers.
