In the world of woodworking and building, there are many different types of timber supplies for building in various shapes, and sizes, with different edges. Planed square edge (PSE) timbers are one type of timber that is widely used in many applications. Here is a brief overview of PSE timber for building and some of the most common ways planed joinery timber is used.
What are PSE timbers?
PSE timbers / planed square edge timbers are timbers that have been planed (or milled) so that they have a smooth, even surface with 90-degree corners – a square edge. These timbers are generally available in standard lengths, widths, and thicknesses. PSE timbers can be made from many different types of wood, but are commonly are spruce and pine. Our PSE timbers are produced from a slow-grown, kiln-dried Fifth Scandinavian Redwood from sustainable sources with either FSC of PEFC Certification.
Common Uses for PSE Timbers
One of the most common uses for PSE timbers is in framing applications. The smooth surface and consistent dimensions make them ideal for builders who need to create straight walls and level ceilings. PSE timbers are also commonly used in millwork and trim applications. Their smooth surface makes them easy to paint or stain, and their consistent dimensions make them ideal for creating professional-looking moldings and trims.
