Live Sawn American Black Walnut Flooring

Grades & Specs | Solid Plank Prices | Engineered Prices

Since early days, American Black Walnut was one of the preferred hardwoods for fine furniture and woodworking. Prized for its rich, dark tones; walnut is an excellent choice for a truly distinctive hardwood floor. Now, using traditional sawing techniques, the entire range of the Walnut log is displayed. Beginning as an almost purple color, American Black Walnut, the only domestic wood that starts off dark, quickly turns a beautiful nut brown with the sapwood remaining a slightly lighter color for contrast. With any finish, Live Sawn American Black Walnut plank flooring will develop golden highlights as it lightens on exposure to sunlight.

NATURAL GRADE, BAND SAW KERF:

Available in solid plank and engineered plank by special order, unfinished or pre-finished. This grade still contains all the natural characteristics of the log from which it was cut, including knots, checking, worm holes and a mix of plain sawn & rift and quarter sawn grain – but, with a random pattern of straight sawmill marks across the face. This pattern evokes the days when water powered sawmills were employed.

 

NATURAL GRADE, CIRCLE SAW KERF:

Available in solid plank and engineered plank by special order, unfinished or pre-finished. This grade still contains all the natural characteristics of the log from which it was cut, including knots, checking, worm holes and a mix of plain sawn & rift and quarter sawn grain – but, with a random pattern of curved sawmill marks across the face. This pattern provides a more rustic look due to the occasional jagged tooth on the circle sawmill.
