What is PAR wood?


Planed All Round otherwise known as PAR or PSE (Planed Square Edge) Is a machined so that the four surfaces and edges will be planed to a smooth surface and uniform thickness. If planed is preferable for you, simply ‘request’ it as part of your timber order, and the sizes after planing.

Here are just some of the benefits of planed timber:

  • Has a superior finish
  • Has a strong versatility
  • Adds durability
  • Looks polished and good quality
  • Offers a depth of colour
  • Each piece is truly unique
  • Is suitable for shelving, homemade furniture and flooring as well as a vast range of other products

For that professional finish why not let Timbersource plane the timber you order to remove the rough surface. Save valuable time in the workshop by letting our highly trained staff at Timbersource plane the wood to your satisfaction, we have the best machines for the job, with a smooth finish, unsanded. This extra service on request is for those eager to make progress on their building project fast and to the highest quality. It can be ordered to you next day, standard 16 working days or simply come and collect it on the same day you ordered, whatever type of timber you choose, we can expertly machine it before dispatch. By using a surface planer, we’ll remove excess wood, so you are left with timber with a uniform, smooth surface on all four sides.

The common grades for planed timber are: 

  • PAR - Planed all round (along both the edges and sides). 
  • PBS - Planed along both faces.
  • PSE - Planed on a single edge. 
  • Rough Sawn - Unplaned, raw cut timber.
