How is it made?
Live Sawn is a European approach to cutting lumber. Plain sawn is the modern way of sawing lumber, in which the log is turned till the Sawyer can cut off the clearest board. In live sawn, the logs are sliced directly through without turning the log. Live sawn is the most effective approach of sawing lumber because it utilizes the whole log. Unlike the normal grain that the traditional plain sawn oak reduces, the technology provides a very distinct grain that incorporates all aspects of the log. The grain varies from the quarter sawn on the outdoors to plain sawn in the center.
