Processing Timber

Timber processing

There are many different kinds of processing available when you choose your timber for your project. Each texture has a different character and contrast that can add a special feeling and look to your project. Here are the 5 most common ways timber is processed.

Brushed and sawcut

This processing  technique consists of a double texturing. The first is the brushing, it gives the floor a subtle texture so that you can feel the grain of the timber. The second texturing technique is saw-marking, to create this effect a band saw makes marks onto the planks. These two effects together create a marvelous contrast and great effect.


Wire-brushed floors offer a subtle, tangible texture to a floor while maintaining a smooth appearance. This character comes out even more beautiful with our Rubio Monocoat oil.


With scraped oak, the wood is planed mechanically. It creates intentional imperfections to hide everyday usage irregularities. The result is a classic, time-worn look of the floor. These floors can give a room a classic look with a warm atmosphere. It creates random intentional imperfections to hide everyday usage irregularities.


Sanding delivers a smooth, beautiful, new-looking appearance. Newly laid floors are sanded to make them 100% level and old floors are sanded to get rid of old, tatty wood finishes and level out worn areas.


Saw-marked floors have a rustic look and feel. The saw marks , that are made on the oak top layer of the floor, brings balance to the wood. They lead the attention away from the grain and emphasize the shape and the aesthetic lines of the wood itself.
