There is a big difference between standard quarter-sawn flooring and the product we sell.

You can legally call a floorboard “quarter-sawn” if its grain is between 60-90 degrees. This is best flooring available from other hardwood flooring companies.

Our unique sawing process produces floorboards that are of a much higher quality with a much tighter grain – between 80-90 degrees. Having the grain running perpendicular to the surface of the flooring, while far more time intensive to produce, cuts across the wood's ray cells yielding "ray-flecked" grain with a spectacularly iridescent and shimmering "flake figure".
