What is PSE Timber?

PSE Timber or Planed Square Edge timber is a type of timber that has been planed on all sides to achieve a smooth finish, ideal for interior projects. The planing creates a sharp, squared edge, which is ideal for projects where a seamless finish with precise measurements is important. 

Uses for PSE Timber

Due to its properties, PSE timber has a wide range of uses. It is ideal for making door frames, windows and other woodworking, as well as furniture making such as cabinets, shelving  and built-in projects such as wardrobes. For structural projects, our C16 and C24 timber may be a better option.
