Mullican Flooring uses three different log cutting techniques to produce three distinctive grain patterns in our Engineered Flooring.
Sawn Cut

Technique
Lumber is sawn straight through the log in the same fashion as normal solid wood flooring. The only difference is the thickness of the cut.

Appearance
Sawn-cut veneer will have the same natural variation in both color and characteristics that a traditional solid wood floor has.
Sawn Cut
Sliced Cut

Technique
Logs are cut down into squares that are called a flitch. The flitch is drawn across an angled blade.  This process is repeated until the whole flitch is turned into veneer.

Appearance
Similar appearance to sawn-cut veneers and will have the same natural variation in both color and characteristics that a traditional solid wood floor has. 
Sliced Cut
Off-Set Rotary Cut

Technique

Logs are positioned on a large lathe and spun against a sharp blade.  This technique produces less waste.

Appearance
Rotary peeled veneers have a distinctive grain pattern.  The grain pattern is more pronounced than sliced or sawn veneers
