Our Woodland Cut wide plank flooring IS done "the way they used to."
Reclaimed DesignWorks still believes in this time-honored practice, known as live-sawing, and we think you will agree that the results are breathtaking.
Replicating early pioneer sawing practices, our Woodland Cut flooring planks are live-sawn from fully matured, slow growth trees, resulting in tight natural grain variations, rustic appearance, and coloration and character that would be removed by other modern lumber grading practices. By utilizing the entire log through-and-through we are able to present you with the longest lengths and widest planks available, as well as minimize the amount of wood from our forests that is wasted. This rare milling practice creates a wide plank flooring product that features (and includes) multiple grades of lumber from board to board. The beauty of this flooring line is accented by a mixture of select-grade cuts, such as rift and quartered, plain, and quarter-sawn boards, that are normally separated and sold at a premium price by other manufacturers.
Our flooring manufacturer is an Ohio-based facility giving them fast access to some of the nation's most prized hardwoods, enabling them to inventory a large selection of fully mature, slow-growth wood.
