Salvaged Live Sawn white oak at first glance seems like a very plain wood, but a closer look shows incredible detail and uniqueness within each and every board. Small knotting provides the base to cathedral grain that grows and gives beautiful patterns across the boards. Tiny streak lines give this species depth and create patterns that go across the cathedral grain. The live sawn cut creates cross streaking, the lighter odd shaped ovals on the outer edges of the boards. This is not typical oak, as you can see in the sample photos above Live Sawn Oak is everything normal oak is and more, our Live Sawn Oak flooring products start with large Northern White Oak. We purchase this Oak from a small logging operation in Wisconsin. It’s during the sawmilling process that we begin turning this common Oak into an uncommon product. Live Sawn is a cutting method that originated in Europe, we started doing this cut too because we can do it better and we can do it locally. Live Sawn milling is much slower and methodical way of cutting logs. Live Sawn requires the experience and knowledge of tree growth, sawmilling and project objectives. The result of this cutting process is a product that highlights the grain and character from each log.
