You won't believe the Price !
White Oak is a wonderful species for flooring.
(A great choice if you are a dog owner!)* It is quite a bit harder than
red oak and when finished in the European oil is a very forgiving floor that is
easy to maintain.
These planks have fantastic graining, knots, saw
kerfs, sap lines etc. They are unusually long for rustic planking, ranging from
4 to 13 ft with the average about 9 ft.
Kiln dried to 6 to 8% for stability. Usually purchased in the 6 inch width
(5.75 face width) they are also available in 6,7 & 9 inch widths.
It is almost indistinguishable from reclaimed, remilled, white oak
planking but at a much lower price.
These planks work with a wide range of styles and are well suited for
dogs and active households.
They are tongue and grooved on the edges so you can install them using
traditional edge nailing but most customers think they are best installed with
traditional 18th century rosehead nails. The rosehead nails are optional on the
6 inch planks but are strongly recommended on the wider planks.

placing water bowls on a waterproof mat.

* No wood flooring is dog "Proof". However, our customers' experience with
the oiled rustic white oak and dogs is very good. White oak is very hard and the
rustic nature of the wood hides a lot of marks that the dog will add to the
floor. (hand cut edges hide even better)
