Salty Fir Timber

take a look at another timber

These are reclaimed Douglas Fir timbers from the rail road trestle which crossed the Great Salt Lake; the saline soaked timbers have picked up some additional minerals which adds coloring and variation; since the original application was in log form we resize the timbers with the option of rough circle-sawn, band-sawn or planed smooth textures; while the rough circle-sawn seems the most rustic, the smooth surfaces reveal more of the added character from the lake; good cross section sizes are available along with great lengths, and these timbers are rather easily structurally graded allowing for a design that also can be engineered to fully support many differing structures.
