How to get black out of Douglas fir ceiling beams

I’m building a home that has douglas fir beams on the ceiling. The guys are there sanding them today and said they sanded the far one for 30 minutes and couldn’t get the black out of it. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? I was planning on doing a white wash followed by a light stain combination but not I’m wondering if I’ll have to do a dark stain to camouflage the black. There’s 3 more beams in this room with the same black throughout.
