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 toffee stain is one of our most popular and works well in almost any home. It provides great contrast between most light and dark colours while accentuating the natural light within a given space. Its subtle orange undertones give it its unique yet classic characteristics without being too visually overbearing. The Wire Brushed finish adds texture and incredible durability.
