White Oak. Quercus Alba.

Here in New England, Northern White Oaks have a tendency for epicormic branching, which leaves a legacy of knots in the grain of the wood.  We created our live sawn natural grade to highlight these character marks.

The live sawn cut saws directly through the log, and the log is sliced all the way through without being turned. This results in boards with a lively variety of grain from quarter sawn to plain sawn, and a floor that is very stable. Sometimes the live sawn cut is referred to as the "European" or "French" cut because this method is an old world style of sawing that maximizes the use of the log.  Live sawn wood flooring  celebrates the character and personality of the individual trees used.
