Quick Overview

Our European Brown Oak Flooring is machined from solid FSC certified European oak timber. Also known as Tiger Oak, the wood has a distinctive tiger stripe patterning. The oak is a character grade and will contain a mix of small splits and sound open knots up 50mm in diameter. The knots can be filled and sanded to a smooth finish if preferred.

Board lengths are typically between 1.8m and 2.8m but some may be supplied shorter or longer than that, depending on timber availability at the time of machining.



Our highly prized and unusual European Brown Oak Flooring has a very distinctive tiger stripe patterning across the boards. This patterning is a natural phenomenon which occurs during the lifecycle of the tree and is caused by the action of the beefsteak fungus which attaches itself to the base of the tree as it grows. The growth of the fungus is not detrimental to the tree at all, but causes an intruiging, random darkening of the timber. Boards from the base of the tree will be full dark chocolate brown, with patterning becoming more random and stripy midway up. Boards from higher up the tree will be a light tan/biscuit colour with less patterning. We recommend loose laying boards before fixing to achieve an even spread of the variegated tones and patterns.

Our Brown Oak Flooring is manufactured to order in our temperature controlled factory in Yorkshire. The wood is kiln-dried to a moisture content of 8-10%, thus making it compatible for use within a warm, dry property. We pre-plane the boards before final machining which results in accurately machined floorboards which are extremely straight, flat and a pleasure to fit. Mass produced imported floors are not made, or quality controlled, to the same high standards as a British Hardwoods wood floor.
