Red Oak #2 Common Grade Hardwood Flooring contains characteristic varieties including large and small knots, a small percentage of pocket knots (easily fixed with matching knot filler), long and short mineral streaks, alongside noticeable shading varieties between each board. This grade of wood flooring has a progressively “Rural” look to the general appearance. #2 Common or “Rustic” is exceptionally natural in appearance, with incredible variety in shading from board to board, noticeable mineral streaks, bigger knots, and a shorter average board length of almost 2′ in length.
