The Difference in the Use of Unedged lumber and Edged lumber
Usually, the choice of wood type will affect the quality of furniture received. Therefore, most companies prefer to use beech wood in a variety of forms to satisfy the needs of the customer. Among the most common woods are the oak and the beech wood. However, beech wood is available in various categories and can be chosen in its edged and unedged form. Edged wood is specially designed according to defined shapes. On the other hand, an unedged wood may appear in undefined forms because the criteria for its production do not follow a strict format.
As the most common species of hardwood, European beech lumber, and oak lumber are most useful in the production of a variety of furniture such as chairs, plywood, doors, tables, chests and more. The beech wood is reddish yellow but acquires a pure red color after it is heated. Unedged lumber is a favorite among many customers because its price is more attractive than the edged one, and it can be used for more purposes than edged timber, and it does not trigger an allergic reaction. Products made of beech and oak are long-term products with a longer lifespan, making it highly demand. Due to its pores, the unedged beech lumber is water-resistant and absorbs various oils used to paint the wood surfaces. According to most manufacturers, the beech wood is classified as a medium-high density category, making it suitable for making strong and reliable wood products.
Edged wood lumber
Edged lumber is usually dried in the oven (killed dry) and reaches a humidity of 8-12%, making the wood more durable and less sensitive to deformities. In contrast to unedged wood, the edged wood comes in predefined dimensions and can be inserted directly into the production chain, without prior procedures. Edged lumber can also be suitable for the production of luxury and more classical furniture. The edged timber is used in the production of side doors, chests, chairs and more. Since the production process of edged wood is longer, it is considered more expensive and rare than the unedged one.
There are various species of trees that can be obtained in their edged and unedged form. Among them is the European oak wood. For most manufacturers, they prefer the oak tree when trimmed, and can be directly put into the production process, because it saves time and additional costs, which can lead to improved revenue. However, there are few manufacturers who are interested in purchasing an unedged oak lumber or unedged beech lumber because of the relatively reasonable cost of sawing and the wide application. Therefore it is important for a variety of wood suppliers to assess the nature of the market and the level of demand for a variety of different types of woods in order to make the best use of their production.
