Our rustic wide plank flooring is milled from mature, fallen or standing dead trees.
It's been said that they don't make them like they used to. If you have been shopping for a new floor for any length of time, you know this is especially true when it comes to hardwood flooring.
Most modern milling companies utilize only certain parts of the log. This is because they want to ensure that the hardwood in one store looks identical to that in another. But there was a time when milling had a much simpler goal: to turn a log into planks while using as much of it as possible.
Our rustic plank flooring is made "the way it used to be."
Olde Wood Ltd still believes in this time-honored practice, known as live-sawing. We think you will agree that the results are breathtaking.
Replicating early pioneer sawing practices, our traditional flooring planks are live-sawn from fully matured, slow-growth trees. This results in tight natural grain variations, a unique appearance and a lot of character that would be removed by modern lumber grading practices. By utilizing the entire log, we are able to present you with the longest and widest planks available. This process also minimizes the amount of wood that is wasted. This rare milling practice creates a rustic wood plank flooring product that features and includes multiple grades of lumber from board to board. The beauty of this rustic hardwood flooring is accented by a mixture of select-grade cuts, such as rift and quartered, plain and quarter-sawn boards. These normally are separated and sold at a premium price by other manufacturers.
