profiled wooden parts
Explanation:
or profiled wooden parts (used for moulding), e.g.
Aluminium oxide resin bonded highly flexible cloth for polishing ofcurved metal surfaces, contoured metal parts and sanding of wooden profiled parts;
or
Fabrics and non-wovens are more flexible than paper-based abrasives. That is why abrasives on flexible fabric substrates can be handled more easily than rigid abrasive paper when hand-sanding profiled wooden parts, in particular on the wood turning lathe.

wooden formwork


Explanation:
you do not give any context, so it could be anything. If these "things" are to be used in construction, it is called formwork. If they are used in manufacturing other "things" they are moulds.
