At Southern Timber we carry a range of timbers which can be cross-cut to produce smooth planed posts. These long timbers match our range of planed and treated redwood with eased edges. We often refer to these timbers as 4RC (four round corners). We mainly use quality redwood stock to produce these timbers which are primarily intended for balustrading, pergola and gazebo construction.
The ex-75mm x 75mm timber makes an attractive posts for trellis & lattice panels. These timbers finish at approximately 70mm which is slightly too narrow for the rebated hand & base rails. They can be used with smooth planed ex 32mm x 100mm boards and 32mm x 32mm spindling to make an American style balustrading. They can also be used for posts when installing pale fences and for supporting diamond lattice panels. Normally machined from 5th grade Scandinavian redwood
Our 100mm x 100mm sections are significantly larger in cross section. They are approximately 94mm x 94mm and they are popular for the rebated hand and rebated base rails. They are often used for garden pergolas and for elevated deck supports. Normally machined from unsorted (1st-3rd) grade German whitewood
75 x 75 planed eased edges, tanalised, usually 2.4 metre and 3.6 metre options
100 x 100 planed eased edges, tanalised, usually 3.6 metre and 4.8 metre options
The ex 38mm x 38mm planed timbers are ideal for spindles, and they are normally supplied in 3.6 metre or 3.9 metre lengths. Finished sizes are approx. 32mm x 32mm and is the same thickness as our popular premier deckboards and can be used for decorative effect in a deck surface.
Our ex 38mm x 125mm smooth board is used primarily as a smooth deckboard but can be utilised as a handrail over the top of our ex-100mm planed posts. It can also be used to frame grooved decking areas, or for the edges on multi-level decks to emphasise the change in height.
