A softwood that is dimensionally stable and recognized for its superior strength-to-weight ratio. VG Fir has a light rosy color and is set off by its remarkably straight and handsome grain pattern. Fir will "redden" over time when exposed to light. The aesthetic appeal of clear, light, straight, vertical-grain Douglas Fir is unsurpassed among the world's softwood species. VG Douglas Fir is only available in the "Select" grade.
