Character rustic oak floors are some of our most popular products.
Reclaimed wood just naturally possesses more intricate grain patterns and richer, deeper natural colors, than newer wood ever can.
In creating character rustic oak floors, we combine the best of all the attributes of reclaimed wood.
Once wood planers and band-saws skip plane and delicately shear away natural patina outer wood skins, wood grains that were hidden show through, though much of the outer texture of the original aged patina remains.
The amount of planing and sanding done during production ultimately determines how much grain is revealed and how much natural patina remains.
It’s a delicate process. How much to keep, how much to take away …. but it creates a truly stunning wood floor that’s remarkably both rustic AND refined. And you can have it your way – more rustic and rugged? or more burnished and refined.
Since these floors are normally sold unfinished, once installed, they can further be sanded in place to achieve the finest texture that’s suited to your tastes.
