White Oak - Live Sawn

Unfinished Engineered

Attributes

Live sawn boards (sometimes referred to as European or French cut) give hardwood floors a unique appearance because all parts of the wood are captured in the cut. Many boards will display cathedral plain sawn grain in the center of the board and rift/quartered characteristics toward the outer edges. Live sawn flooring is typically produced in a “natural” grade (combination of all grades) which allows for some knots and natural wood characteristics and color variations. Because at least a third of the cut is quarter sawn, live sawn planks are also highly stable. Floors made of live sawn lumber are regarded as both cost effective and environmentally friendly.

Ideal For

A universally appealing wood, White Oak is popularly used not only for flooring, but also furniture, cabinetry, interior trim, boats, and barrel-making.
