CLEAR PLAINSAWN contains mixed grain patterns. Materials are virtually free of knots with only an occasional pin knot 1/2″ or smaller in diameter. Occasional figure will be present.
SELECT PLAINSAWN contains both leaf and linear grain patterns with knots and other natural character markings. Knots will not be greater than 1 1/2” on their minor axis. Select Plainsawn may contain small cracks or filled cracks without limit.
CHARACTER PLAINSAWN contains mixed grain patterns with knots and other natural character markings throughout without limit. Nail holes, minor cracks, filled cracks or other distressed markings may be present.
PERFECTION QUARTERSAWN contains 98% clear material with a minimum of 90% having a linear, straight grained face. Perfection Quartersawn is the highest grade of flooring that Plankmaker produces.
SELECT QUARTERSAWN contains 75% or more clear material with a minimum of 75% straight grain. Knot size is limited to 1 ½’’ on the minor axis. This was the grade of flooring most sought after and traditionally used in Colonial America.

DISTRESSED PLAINSAWN contains mixed grain patterns with knots and other natural character markings throughout without limit. Nail holes, minor cracks, filled cracks or other distressed markings may be present.

MONSTER WIDE PLANKING is the perfect way to bring a sense of understated luxury to larger spaces. The generous width and length of such planks alone create an elegant and impressive floor. Monster Planking is always live sawn and thus contains the full array of character markings.
VERSAILLES PARQUETRY is an intricate design of wood flooring which gives the appearance of woven pieces of wood within a square panel. Originating from the French Palace of Versailles which was built in the late 16th century for King Louis XIV, this flooring pattern is one of the most elegant. We can produce this flooring in your choice of wood grades. It can be made with or without joints with square wooden pegs.
