Waney edged

BRE (Building Research Establishment) is an independent, research-based consultancy, testing and training organisation, operating in the built environment and associated industries. A guide to the use of urban timber (FB 50) was written by Geoff Cooper and published by BRE on 31 July 2012.

The guide defines ‘waney edged’ as:

A sawn plank of wood still retaining a natural edge (may include the bark) along one or both sides of the piece of timber.
