Live Sawn White Oak Flooring

Grades & Specs | Solid Plank Prices | Engineered Plank Prices

Live Sawn White Oak is the result of straight cutting the log all the way through from the outside bark to the heartwood center. The resulting boards include the full range of the log’s characteristics resulting in a unique mix of clear and natural grades with grain direction varying from plain sawn near the center to rift & quarter sawn along the edges. The wider the plank, the more these unique characteristics are displayed. The knowledge and experience in drying, conditioning and milling required to bring these planks to you is considerable and the result creates very little waste. It’s a naturally beautiful floor that’s both cost effective and environmentally friendly.
