What Is Planed All Round Timber?

Planed timber is also known as PAR, which stands for 'planed all round' or PSE which is short for ‘planed square edge’. It is timber planed on all four sides to have a smooth, uniform finish along with crisp square edges.

How Does Planed Timber Differ From Sawn Timber?

They are made from different source materials: planed timer is made from joinery grade softwoods that will plane smooth, whereas Sawn Timber is you cannot plane as the spruce timber would fur.

While planed timber is smooth on all sides, rough-sawn timber is left with rough edges. Rough-sawn timber is often used in projects where the timber will continuously be cut, whereas Planed timber is pre-cut to your specifications.
