Are There Very Large Dimensions For Lumber?

Asked by Nile on November 18, 2015

Hi, I was wondering about the dimension of extremely large timber members. Are there very large dimensions for lumber (like 2′ x 3′ or more).


Answered by Doug Friant

Dear Nile:

We can get very large timbers in Douglas Fir which is prone to very large checks, or in glue-laminated material.

The checks are natural, and make the timber look old.



Best regards,
