For over 40 years, Narangba Timbers has been one of the leading companies in timber sales in the Brisbane area and as such, we have plenty of experience with all things timber and are happy to share that knowledge with our customers. We’ve compiled an all-inclusive list over the years that make up a glossary of anything you might need to know about timber, what makes it useful and how to build with it.
What You Need to Know
Whether you are an expert in working and building with timber, there is still much more to learn. The fact is that with all there is to know about this subject, there is always more to learn; there are plenty of techniques out there yet to be mastered.
If you aren’t an expert and maybe are just starting your first major project, such as installing timber decking into your home, then a guide like ours will probably benefit you even more.
Technical Words and Fun Facts
Whatever stage you are in in your woodworking journey, there are a few key words that are good to know. It’s a good idea to at least familiarise yourself with the different types of hardwood and some of the ways they can be used to complete the project that you’re interested in.
In addition, there are a number of other words and phrases that aren’t vital, but may probably interest you while you learn more about the field. For example, a bird’s mouth is the triangular cut on rafters so that wooden beams can sit comfortably on them. Fun facts like this are good to know and can increase your overall knowledge about this subject.
