7x3 Timber Sizing Explained
7x3 timber is most often measured in inches, which is an imperial measurement, though it is sometimes measured in metric and this is where millimetres (mm) come into play.
The sizing of 7x3 timber is considered to be either:
- Nominal Size: 75mm (Thickness) x 175mm (Width)
- Finished Size: (approximately) 70mm x 170mm
This slight discrepancy is accounted for by the way the timber is cut, kiln-dried and prepared. The difference in the two sizes is minuscule and should not make a meaningful difference to your project. At Materials Market, we sell the finished size.
