What is PAR wood?

Planed All Round otherwise known as PAR or PSE (Planed Square Edge) Is 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.

Why do you need to plane timber?

  • Sawn timber from sawmills is rarely perfectly straight - PAR will make it straight
  • The sawmills only plank timber roughly from the tree and remove the waney edge - PAR will make it parallel
  • Square edged parallel timber is essential for jointing together on the sides or corners to avoid gaps or irregular angles
  • Taking off the rough surface will reveal any imperfections, splits, character, knots, holes - PAR will highlight any of these
  • Planing the rough surface makes the timber smooth and ready for sanding
  • You can't paint or stain rough sawn timber effectively
  • Planing makes timber suitable for shelving, homemade furniture and flooring as well as a vast range of other products

Do I have to buy the full piece of wood?

At most timber merchants you have to buy the full board! At Timbersource we are proud to say you dont have to, and why should you! We have a firm belief that timber shouldnt be wasted and we have a strict no waste policy. Therefore we dont want you to buy more than you need and waste it. Big statement I know, but we have a short sections rack that we save the offcuts for customers that work with small pieces like furniture and toy makers etc. That is why we can sell you what you need for less!

So in short you only buy what you need!
