    wooden members, wooden beam

    Hello everyone,

    Happy "Δεκαπενταυγουστο".

    Wondering what the Greek phrase would be for "wooden members" as in the little wooden parts that make up a wooden fence or a wooden door?

    Also how would one refer to a wooden beam, as in the structural member that supports a ceiling?

    Thanking you in advance.

    Cosmas

    wooden beam > ξύλινη δοκός (formally) or ξύλινο δοκάρι (less formally, and colloquially)

    wooden member > ξύλινο στοιχείο (but I'm not 100% sure)

    Δεν ξέρω αν το ζητούμενο εδώ είναι μόνο η απόδοση του beam πχ, ή εάν ενδιαφέρει και η σχετική ειδική ορολογία.

    What about "σανίδα " as the most appropriate word for the planks in a fence or the wooden members of a door? I am looking for the word that an actual carpenter would use and I'm not sure that "στοιχεία " would do it.

    Thank you!

    Σανίδα is probably too wide for this job. I think a carpenter would expect to hear something like ξύλα, κομμάτια ξύλο, πηχάκια.

    That's it, guys. "Πηχάκι" is the word I was looking for. Thank you very much!
