Sawn Mark Finish Engineered Hardwood Flooring
One of the more beautiful finishing techniques becoming increasingly more popular are the saw marked engineered hardwoods. Also known as Sawn Mark, this process like hand scraping, wire brushing, chiseling or sculpting is a distressing technique used to add texture and character to the wood surface.
As the name implies it is done either with a band or similar saw. To achieve the look the saw is lowered on to the wood planks with varying and irregular placement and parallel with the grain, resulting in a slight distressed look that creates light highlights and shadows to provide a beautiful contrast to the natural grain. Sawn Mark hardwood floors have a subtle warm texture that give a natural look and slightly worn feel.
