Large Douglas Fir Signs

Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is not a true fir at all, nor a pine or spruce. It is a distinct species named after Archibald Menzies, a Scottish physician and naturalist who first discovered the tree on Vancouver Island in 1791, and David Douglas, the Scottish botanist who later identified the tree in the Pacific Northwest in 1826. It is now North America's most plentiful softwood species, although we used timber grown closer to home.
It has a reddish brown to yellow/orange colour with a straight grain and is characterized by exceptional strength, hardness and durability. It is not only very tough but also water resistant, which makes it useful in exposed situations where maintenance is difficult.

The design is then carved out by sand blasting and the letters are painted black, bright blue, navy blue or green.
