What is DAR timber?

DAR timber refers to Dressed All Round timber, which means that the timber has been machined on all sides, resulting in an all-round smooth surface. Depending on the timber itself, DAR timber is commonly used across furniture making, carpentry, panelling, and in some cases, decking, privacy screens, and landscaping (depending on whether the timber is treated for outdoor use).

DAR timber is one of the most popular materials across renovators, DIYers, and builders, as the smooth finish and rounded edges are easy to handle than other types of timber.

Extremely versatile, DAR timber is also favoured as it is extremely cost-effective when compared to alternatives. Abundant and well-priced, it’s no wonder that DAR timber is one of the most popular product ranges at Tile Importer.

What’s the difference between sawn and DAR timber?

Where DAR timber is favoured for being finished, smooth, and ready to work with, sawn timber is the least finished timber available. Before being treated, timber is put through a process of sawing and drying – it is only dried before treating, and not afterwards. The finished result is a timber that is still close to its natural state, with a raw look and feel.

In comparison, Dressed All Round timber is the most finished of all timbers available. DAR timber is often machined until it is fully polished, offering a smooth, rounded, and consistent finish.

What are the benefits of using DAR timber?

Working with DAR Timber is, in general, less difficult than working with other timbers like rough, sawn timber. DAR timber is smooth and rounded, which makes the process of construction and building much more simple – for DIYers, landscapers, contractors, and builders.

Another benefit of working with DAR timber is that the result offers a clean, uniform, appearance.

Finally, DAR timber is less likely to warm or up over time as the timber has been planed and machined to precise specifications and an exact thickness.
