It is dried after treatment to reduce shrinkage, and can be machined to exact specification, within millimeters. Overall, dried dressed timber offers an attractive and finished look, and is useful where aesthetics matter. It is ideal for building decks, outdoor areas, and pergolas.
Our sustainable cuts of Wet Sawn Timber are cut from logs into different shapes and sizes. Wet Sawn timber that has been refers to timber that has been sawn, dried prior to treatment but not after the treatment. This creates the most "raw" or "rustic" of all timber finishes. Ideal for solid timber beams and rectangular timber sections, this is a solid timber that can be painted without any more treatment.
Sometimes referred to as Rougher Header, Dried Laser Pine is a timber that has been machined with serrated knives to a specific gauge size, resulting in a finish that is smoother than Wet Sawn Timber, but more textured than Dried Dressed Timber. The Laser Pine is then dried after treatment to reduce shrinkage and can be cut to exact specification, within millimeters. The entire process of crafting this timber results in the minimisation of splinters, and makes it significantly easier to coat the wood in paint. Laser Pine is useful for building decks, outdoor areas, and pergolas.
