Summary

Joinery timber is used in the manufacture of machined and assembled timber products, which make up the second fix elements of construction distinct from structural and construction timber uses in the first fix. Both softwood and hardwood species are used in joinery.

Joinery is the non-structural use of timber within a building, including windows, doors, cladding, skirting boards, and door linings.
