Woodtrend Rhythm Range
THE AUTHENTIC GRADE
We celebrate the rich variety of natural wood characteristics such as knots, mineral highlights, pin holes, distinctive differences in colour, grain configuration, grain texture and details. Woodtrend considers the natural appearance in the timber as an opportunity rather than a defect. Only timber that will affect the structure of the board will be rejected. We are calling the specification grade selected for the RHYTHM Range AUTHENTIC. A hand selected mix of the European Grades of Prime, Nature, Rustic and Character. This mix of grades is what every log provides, and we will use the full range of it including the 'flaw' to craft your floor! Each board will be different. We listen to the wood, follow the grain of the wood by hand. The results are always beautiful, original, and astonishing, like nature itself! The result is a work of ART you can live on.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
In the Authentic Grade selected for the RHYTHM Range we allow only healthy knots up to 55mm diameter, filled cracked knots up to 55 diameter and filled dead knot holes up to 20mm diameter. Replacement knots may be used on larger dead knot holes. The total number of knots allowed is unlimited. For our RHYTHM Range, we also select oak that has limited small bark pockets with end splits up to 1mm in width and 100mm in length but limited to 20% of the total volume. We don't allow any worm holes but select boards that have some edge sap limited to 30% of the width of the board and small amounts of dark heart wood. All timber has natural colour and grain variations and we celebrate these characteristics and work with them to create these beautiful and totally unique finishes.
The craftmanship required to make the natural characteristics of the oak on each board unique and durable is our strength and requires skill and patience. Any batch of flooring will, in all probability, come from more than one tree and will have a wide distribution of colour, grain, mineral density and fibre density. These natural variations inherent in the wood react differently to the fuming and colouring processes in our RHYTHM Range resulting in an array of colours and tones around a central base colour. The surface appearance and the physical feel of a RHYTHM floor is lively and textured.
