After the Douglas fir tree is cut down and transported to a saw mill, it is first sawn into a rectangular form and then sawn into evenly thick planks. Afterwards the planks will be placed into a vacuum chamber for kiln drying, which leaves the timber with no more than 8-10 % of wood moisture. Immediately after drying the timber is planed into its final form. To avoid any damage on knots and branches, a special kind of wood glue is used on the surface.
Finally, the planks are sanded down with a special machine to achieve an even and smooth surface. After completion, the floorboards are packaged and send to our costumers.
In order to achieve the highest quality standards, our very own forestry experts source the timber in local forests. That way we guarantee the best timber quality.
