How we make your engineered wood flooring

3Oak’s timber is sourced exclusively from European Oak.  We manufacturer our engineered hardwood floor in our own factory in Eastern Europe. From the beginning of the production, following the harvest, the first thing we do is select the best fresh raw materials ready to be processed for production in our high quality oak engineered wood floors.

During the sawing of logs into planks we produce a variety of size categorised in to thickness, width and length. Once cut we sort through the boards and classify them according to the quality of grade. All our floors have the sapwood removed from the edges and checked for any defects to ensure only the finest quality makes it to our final product.

Once the oak lamella has been sawn in to the required sizes, we pass them on to the next stage, ready for drying in our kiln dry chamber.

After harvesting, we load pallets of the Oak lamella in to the kiln drying chamber.

The kiln dried Oak Lamella is sanded, sorted and fused to the WBP Premium grade birch plywood. After this stage our skilled craftsman careful joinery repair and fill the dead knots, leaving it sealed and fully protected. Once all knots have been treated, we start cutting the tongue and groove.

The Engineered planks are then vacuum packed and the prepared boards are ready for bespoke oiled and lacquered finishes.

We pay special attention to each and every stages of our production process, we ensure that the production units maintain the optimal moisture content and ambient temperature.

The last stage of production is hand-finishing at our London workshop. Here 3 Oak craftsmen use old fashioned and traditional techniques to create bespoke finishes. We are able to provide colour matches in hard wax oil and lacquer to meet your requirements.
