Rustic Floor Supply offers solid unfinished hardwood flooring at our Spokane, Washington location. Solid unfinished hardwood flooring is the ultimate choice for those who want complete control over the final look of their flooring. This type of flooring is made of natural, organic wood with no artificial materials, making it a timeless and classic choice. It can be finished to your exact specifications, and can also be refinished and restyled to give it a completely new look. In contrast, other flooring options like engineered hardwood and luxury vinyl (LVP) are imitations of solid hardwood, and prefinished solid hardwood is simply prestained and finished. No other flooring material can match the versatility and natural beauty of solid unfinished hardwood.

Different Styles of Hardwood Flooring Cuts
Plain Sawn Flooring
Unfinished solid hardwood flooring is typically plain-sawn, a traditional method of cutting logs into hardwood that produces the most usable wood. This method results in flooring boards with growth rings that mix throughout the face and join at the ends, creating cathedral arches. Plain-sawn hardwood flooring is a popular choice for its unique natural appearance and versatility.
Live Sawn Flooring
Unfinished solid hardwood flooring can also be live-sawn, a cutting style that is gaining popularity for its unique look. Live-sawn flooring has more character and is graded differently than plain-sawn flooring due to the appearance of the boards. Live-sawn floors are becoming more popular in Europe and Asia, and feature cathedral-style grain patterns in the middle of the plank with more straight grain on the edges. Live-sawn flooring is a great option for those looking for a unique and visually striking hardwood flooring option.
Quarter Sawn Flooring
Unfinished solid hardwood flooring can also be quarter-sawn, a cutting method that involves quartering a log and then cutting these quarters vertically and horizontally. This method creates a unique look with flecking but no cathedral-style grain patterns like those found in other cuts. Quarter-sawn flooring is more stable and less likely to warp than plain or live-sawn flooring due to the way the grain pattern is cut. However, quarter-sawn flooring is often more expensive because this method produces more waste. If you’re looking for a stable and visually striking hardwood flooring option, quarter-sawn flooring may be a good choice for you.
Rift Sawn Flooring
Unfinished solid hardwood flooring can also be rift-sawn, a cutting method that involves cutting the wood from the outer edge of the log at a specific angle. The rift-sawn cutting process creates a uniquely uniform style with less variation than other cuts, and the grain all appears to run in a single direction. Rift-sawn flooring is a good choice for those looking for a hardwood flooring option with a more uniform and consistent appearance.
