Edging

 

a thin strip of wood obtained in trimming the edges of a board that has not been cut to size. Since logs do not have uniform thickness, an edging has a thick butt section and a thin top section. Small pieces of lumber are usually produced from the butt section of edgings, and the top part is used as fuel or converted into chips used in the pulp-and-paper and hydrolysis industries and in the production of chipboard. Edgings are also used in the production of laminated wood.
