Asked by Mike February 3, 2021

Answer

it could be used as a newel post, but it is worth nothing that this item is produced from a softwood species, Douglas Fir, and would show marks and scrapes a bit more prominently than a hardwood alternative.

This is a softwood product and if would be worth a call to the local store to inquire if an alternative product is available.

Can this be mounted onto a wall as a mantle?

Asked by Katie May 15, 2020
1
Answer

yes, absolutely, but we would recommend securing the product very well to the wall and other components of the mantle. This is product is kiln dried, but likely not as dry as it may become the warm, dry environment above the fireplace and if left unsecured may have a natural desire to twist a bit as the growth rings contract.

could this be used for ceiling beams?

Answer

Absolutely, but unless it is a purely decorative project it would best to consult a builder or engineer regarding safe span lengths.

Do these clean up nice with a bit of sanding. Hoping to paint for a loft bed project.

You would need to hand pick the best ones from the store but they are a pretty soft wood and sand easily. They are good for a rougher rustic look more than a perfectly smooth finished product since there are knots and imperfections. I uses them as they were and just hit them with a belt sander to get rid of splinters and rounded the edges with a router to prevent the corners from getting hit and splintering. They have a rough look similar to cedar. I used them for table legs.

Is this type of wood suitable for using it as a border for raised garden beds?

Answers

This is what I used recently. From researching this type of wood I'm hoping to get 7-10 years life out of it.

This wood is really dry and stained very well. The dryness keeps it from warping or twisting. I will buy Douglas Fir more often now. This was the first time buying!!!

These untreated 4x4s worked great for a rustic look on my farm table project. It is a nice soft wood that is easy to work with and has a look similar to expensive cedar. I used them un-sanded and rough. Only the lower 3/4 of each leg was rounded off with a router for a finished look. I wish they had this grade Douglas Fir in other dimensional lumber for other projects. I had to use yellow pine for the rest of the table.
