The natural 1850 is one of our two pass finishes and the lightest tone in our 1850 collection. This process involves the boards being stained black and then sanded off, it is then finished naturally showing off the beautiful wood tones and natural colour variation throughout. This stain adds instant character to any space highlighting the unique grain patterns in the Live Sawn Oak, giving you that perfect rustic element. It is a great choice when working with various wood tones (we see you stunning log homes!) This stain continues to be a best seller in our stain gallery since it's introduction, talk about timeless.
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.
