Select Structural Posts and Timbers are graded primarily for strength, but can be used also for good appearance. Characteristics may include- Checks: minimal; grain: medium; knots: sound tight and well spaced. Pin holes, pitch streaks, skip, slop grain, torn grain, stain and wane. The picture shown above is an example of super high end Select Structural Grade Douglas Fir. Most select structural Douglas Fir is not this clear. We can get them but if you just call for Select Structural it will not look this nice and clear.
Note: all pictures are meant for a general grade description. If you want to see a more defined grade image, please let us know. We can email you pictures and grade rules.
