When buying timber online, or through any avenue, you will be presented with a number of options...
The kind of wood is of course the most obvious choice you will need to make, but many timber suppliers will also allow you to choose between a selection of finishes or the specific size of your chosen wood.
Cut-to-size timber is incredibly useful, as it not only minimises waste and left over material, but also less work is required to make it suit your purpose. As a supplier of timber ourselves we strive to make things as convenient for our customers as possible, which is why all of our timber is not only available cut-to-size, but also planed all round.
Planed timber on the other hand is ideal for fencing, building frames, fabricating animal hutches, and just about anything else which can be made from wood, is likely to be seen and is intended for regular use. Most DIY practitioners will prefer to use planed all round timber, as it's not only pleasing to the eye, but can go anywhere, is safer to work with and can be started working on right away; without having to be planed manually.
