I am familiar with regular Pine timbers PAR which I have used to make furniture. SCANT is not the same stuff is it - type/species/quality wise is it?
So can anyone please tell me What SCANT actually is - how it is produced ???

A quick Google shows several definitions, but it looks mainly like sawn timber (that may or may not be PAR, depending on which definition you read), that you might use for studwork and similar construction jobs; usually not particularly good quality.

When I was working in "gyppo" mills in Oregon- 1970s-'80s- "scant-sawn" referred to lumber that included a bit of the arc of the outside of the log, so that the particular board in question didn't offer a full rectangular profile (usually at one end, only), but provided enough of a bearing surface to function in most common applications (eg stud walls). I also heard the term "wane" applied to that aspect of these same sticks. ^..^
