You may be wondering if planed timber is the timber you need and what exactly it is and what it can be used for. Here is a little more information to help you come to the right decision and find the right product required to complete your project.
What Is Planed Timber?
This type of timber is sometimes known as PSE which stands for Planed Square Edge timber. It is sometimes referred to as PAR which stands for Planed All Round because all of the surfaces and edges are planed to a smooth finish. PAR tends to be a little more costly than PSE as it tends to be used in projects where all sides are visible.
This type of timber is suitable for a number of different applications. It is usually used in projects where appearance is important, or a clean finish is required. If the timber is going to be on show, planed timber will usually be used as it looks great. This type of timber is easy to work with and can be finished with stains, oils or lacquers.
Planed timber is sawn timber which has been planed down until smooth. It is most suited for interior use but can be used externally, providing it is treated properly.
Whether you choose PSE timber or PAR timber for your project, the end result will no doubt look great. This type of timber we sell is all made from softwood trees.

It Can Be Used For A Variety Of Projects
Often used for interiors, planed timber can be used for a number of different projects such as sash windows or shelving. It can also be used outside if you choose to use a treatment to preserve it from the elements. Although softwoods can be prone to moisture penetrating the wood, if you treat them, they will be preserved from the elements.
Sometimes people even use it for their flooring projects where the flooring is on show, or they might even choose to use it for homemade furniture too for a really unique and bespoke piece.
Remember The Two Different Sizes
When it comes to timber, it is important to remember that there is a difference between the two sizes. The first size is the nominal size and the second is the finished size which is the one you will receive.
The first size is the dimensions of timber when it is cut, graded and kiln dried in a mill however the finished size relates to when it has been machined and shaven down to a smooth and more aesthetically pleasing dimension. So, when opting for a 38x175mm piece of timber, you will receive a finished size of 32x169mm. In imperial that's about 1.5x7 inch or more commonly referred to as 7x1.5 timber, before it's been planed.
