James is correct in that the RAE lists cimbria as an archaic spelling of cimbra. However, it also lists filete. Whatever that is, it says it's part of a molding. Our site dictionary says that's listel in English (which I've never heard of).

i'm not sure if that is it, because i'm writing a paper on a luis de gongora poem, and it uses the word "cimbria." here's the actual line, maybe i'm wrong and "cimbra" does make sense: cuyas cimbrias de oro/ al claro Sol, en cuanto en torno gira,/ ornan de lus, coronan de belleza;

If you go to the Dictionary tab at the top of this page and search there, you'll get to this:

cimbra [theem'-brah]
noun
1. A wooden frame for constructing an arch. (f)
2. the bending of a board. (Nautical) (f)

So the correct Spanish word is cimbra. Google that, and you'll get loads of hits.
