Classic grade solid oak flooring is similar in its knotting and shakes to our character grade flooring.
The difference between the two is that classic grade flooring exhibits the distinctive figuring of medullary rays.
These are caused by plant cells running across and at an angle to the tree's usual vertical cells which result in beautiful, silky, sometimes silver markings not unlike marble as the boards are cut out of the tree.
Once classic grade boards have been laid, applying Osmo Polyx Oil results in these medullary rays gleaming as the light catches them and creating unparalleled character in the floor.
Only the much more expensive quarter-sawn oak floors exhibit medullary rays and so oak flooring laid using these boards offers superb value.
