French Cut White Oak


For over 20 years, we have used a European approach to cutting our wide plank hardwood flooring, this french cut applies a century-old technique that has long been the standard style of cutting logs in Europe. Also referred to as Live Sawn, this milling method, is the result of straight cuts through the log, which produces a mix of a rift, quarter, and plain sawn woods. This type of milling highlights all the grain styles, color, and character variations in each log and provides a unique and versatile product every time.

When all of these styles are present in an individual board, it creates an end product that is unparalleled in aesthetics.

Hardwood Design Company's Live Sawn Oak, is a french cut white oak that is locally made and authentically crafted in Texas.

Our French Cut White Oak is now offered in our Natural Face texture.

Our Natural Face wide plank hardwood flooring undergoes a proprietary aging process that produces a variety of time-worn characteristics to the face of the hardwood. This aging process creates subtle undulations that occur across the top of the wood, adding visual interest and movement. Our aging process enhances the depth of dimension and texture nostalgic of an old-world floor aged by the elements of history, life, and love.

Hand-shaping each aged plank enhances and smooths the time-worn elements produced during our aging process. Once we finish hand-shaping our Natural Face French Cut White Oak flooring, it is then authentically crafted.

Authentically Crafted Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring


Authenticity means being genuine. It is not a specific look or style, its a story about quality and origination.

To us, the conception and physical production of our products are inseparable, and our relationship with our craft is somatic. We provide you with an "artisan" product that is mindfully and skillfully made. Our authentically crafted products are original and perfectly "imperfect."

All products are textured by hand and finished by hand.
