SourceDouglas Fir Rustic Timbers can be produced from a variety of sources, including i) timbers/lumber reclaimed from various salvage projects; ii) timbers/lumber cut from beetle-killed, fire-killed or dead-standing trees; iii) timbers/lumber cut from material which has weathered out of spec; and iv) new timbers/lumber.
HC/FOHCGenerally Heart Center (HC)
HolesMinimal to None.
Checking/CracksTimbers generally have checks from the heart center to the faces of the timber. In addition, timbers can have surface checking and cracks, moderate butt checking and minor end splitting.
Moisture Content/StabilityThe moisture content in Douglas Fir Rustic Timbers may vary from Air-Dried to Green. This material should not be considered as stable as reclaimed material.
SurfacingCircle-Sawn, Band-Sawn or Planed (S4S)
Standard Dimensionsa) Cross-sections: 4x6 to 10x10 (larger cross-sections up to 18x18 are sometimes available, depending on length and quality needed); b) Lengths: to 16' (longer timbers are often available); c) Target Dimensions: Circle-sawn timbers are generally targeted at 1/2" nominal dimensions; band-sawn and planed timbers are targeted at 1/2" under full-sawn for dimensions up to 5" and 3/4" under full-sawn for dimensions over 5"; d) Tolerances: circle-sawn +/- 1/4"; band-sawn +/- 1/8"; planed timbers +/- 1/16". As timbers air dry, they tend to shrink somewhat, resulting in dimensions become somewhat more nominal.
WeightTypically, approximately 3 pounds per board foot
GradingDouglas Fir Rustic Timbers can often be graded (generally WCLB) upon request. It is highly recommended that any timbers that are to be used in a structural application be graded. It is also recommended that standard size timbers be used whenever possible. Checking tends to be more pronounced in timbers wider and/or thicker than 12" than in standard size timbers.
Appearance VariationDouglas Fir Rustic Timbers are cut from logs or timbers that may vary in appearance from piece to piece. As a result, timber characteristics can be expected to vary from piece to piece. Trestlewood believes that appearance variations (no two timbers exactly alike) are one of the selling points of this product line.
