Live Sawn is a specialty cut of wood we do which enables us to provide our clients with a very wide and unique hardwood floor. It is sawn using the Old World European method and incorporates all aspects of the log's character. It is very rustic with large knots, and varying grain patterns including rift sawn and quarter sawn. A large majority of the grain is quarter sawn giving it incredible stability which is the reason we can offer it up to 10" wide. A 7" Live Sawn board will shrink and expand roughly as much as a 4" plain sawn board making this floor the perfect option for a cottage. For wide planks we recommend a nail and bead glue installation. The live sawn is a perfect floor for dogs. The thunderstorm 1850 stain is a very deep and rich grey just like the thunderstorm stain. The difference is that it is a two pass stain containing black which makes the grain of the wood stand out against the dark grey and makes for a beautiful contrasting combination. The Wire Brushed finish gives this floor texture and added durability.
