    David Gunton supplies Country Grade European Oak boards from various sources and various widths, but most especially wide long boards. By clicking on most pictures on this site you can see a larger version.

    Not all these photographs show finished floors. This may be because these are new stocks of which we do not have finished floor photos. Others may show floors laid in unfinished rooms - because we have not been able to get back to photograph the finished job.

    Country Grade European Oak Boards

    To the right is a photograph of a Country grade quality European oak board floor. This style of oak board floor may be made from a wide variety of widths, lengths and thicknesses. This enables the floor to be finely tuned to your budget and the desired appearance.
    This little floor in a cottage is made of boards from 250mm to 300mm wide. We supply this grade of board in random widths from 100mm up to about 400mm wide. This floor has been fumed and oiled. It will improve with age, wear and tear and loving care over the next few centuries.



    This is the same floor before it was finished. This lighter colour can be maintained by not fuming and by the application of water based lacquer. There are many other techniques which are employed to achieve interesting and beautiful appearances. You may consider bleaching, liming, ageing .......

    This is a traditional oiled finished oak floor. It is so lovely it speaks for itself. It needs no eulogising from us. However, it is 20mm thick and, in this instance, is fitted over a variety of substrates including an earlier joisted board floor and in part, a recently made screeded concrete base with softwood bearers embedded. It is fixed by drilling, countersinking, screwing and pelleting.



    This new dining room floor is now a valuable part of the fabric of this house / home. We would like to think that in two hundred years time it will still be there. With only ordinary care, there is no reason to think it will not be. It is 20mm thick, face fixed, drilled, countersunk, screwed and pelleted to bearers in the screed and is fitted over underfloor heating.
