ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

English Oak is an exceptional variety and is revered for being the finest oak in this species. Due to being wilder, more naturally grown, this wood features an incredible natural grain pattern throughout the logs. These pedunculate logs are very different to the tall sensile Oaks from commercial forests. It’s also slowly grown, meaning that the growth rings inside are much tighter than in quicker grown woods, with the hue being richer in colour as a result too.   Read More
Plank: Inspired by traditional floors, our planks range from narrow width (80mm), to traditional floorboard width (140mm) and wide planks (180 to 220mm), making them incredibly versatile.

Perhaps most importantly, when quarter sawn, this wood features the broadest medullary rays of any oak. These are beautiful natural veins that run across the planks.

Galion is crafted from this incredibly special English Oak.

We saw our English Oak logs in the same manner which they have done for hundreds of years. This method is known as quarter sawing. By doing this you get a little less usable wood from each log, but the wood has the best stability as quarter sawn Oak mainly moves in its thickness and not in its width. By quarter sawing this English Oak you also get the most wonderful grain patterns throughout the wood, wonderfully thick medullary rays, sometimes wild and wondering grain patterns and all pulled together with a rich, warm tones that are unique to English Oak.

Our Galion planks are dimensionally impressive and amongst the largest in our Woodworks collections. Provided as random width floor, the different widths add interest to the floor, which was how floors were always made pre-20th century. The narrower widths adding scale and proportion to the wider boards.

Also, in keeping with the most traditional look possible, our artisans hand roll every edge with a metal roller. This gives a careful pillowed effect to each edge, which is the most natural look of all edges.

The surface of the floor is undulating, with a huge amount of natural shaping and movement throughout. Each board is different from the next, with its own individual movement, linking your project back to nature. This also reflects the shaping you would come to expect with an antique or reclaimed floor and pays homage to these centuries-old originals, which is a signature of our Woodworks craftsmanship.
