Douglas Fir? Interesting. They sand pretty easily with 120 grit and produce an almond colored dust. Become reddish with Murphys oil soap then dry light colored again.

The wood has probably darkened with age. Still Douglas Fir is darker than the whitewood you get at the box store when it's new. I don't believe I would putting Murphy's oil soap on the sanded wood. You don't know how that might affect the new finish.

Hi Russell,

Its really hard to tell with just a few photos, but from you other description and the open pattern of the wood, it presents most likely as a soft wood, and I was thinking a White Pine or soft pine species.

Regards,

Well it's definitely a wide grained soft wood, I'd put my money on Fir.
