So today, we'd like to share some information about the knots on the wooden floor.
Let's see where the knot comes from, there are two ways that the knot comes from, one is from tree branches, another one is from wood scar. Please see this tree in the picture, there are a lots of branches on the trunk, we have to cut small branches from the trunk and cut the trunk to make the wooden floor, So the knot is come from the place where the branch was cut off. Normally this kind of knot is "live knot". Another kind of knot is from the tree scar, Once the tree trunk or skin was damaged, the transfer tube from the plant Nutrient delivery system is broken so the nutritive material will build up at the place where it is broken. So over time, the tree scar is there. Generally, the knot from the scar is "Dead knot".
