Douglas Fir

Douglas-fir has a long-standing reputation for its distinctive natural attributes, including strength and beauty. It is commonly used for building and construction purposes due to its extraordinary strength-to-weight ratio and availability in large dimensions. In India it has found a market in solid doors and door frames, furniture and general millwork and is highly recommended in post and beam construction.

Douglas-fir is also used to produce a wide variety of products including general millwork, flooring, furniture, cabinets and veneer. This species has excellent strength properties and is well known for its workability. The wood dries rapidly with small dimensional movement and little tendency to check. It is relatively easy to work, with good machining qualities.
