Irregular Floors Eliminate Wood Waste [Pics]

Irregular Floors Eliminate Wood Waste [Pics]

A new flooring system makes use of irregular cuts to reduce wasted wood.

Don Michael Acelar De Leon

Straight-cut wooden planks are often regarded as wasteful due to the irregularities of uncut logs. Combining wood scanning systems, tailor-made CAD/CAM developments and innovative optimization algorithms for placement software, Bolefloor has created a system that analyzes the curves and irregularities of the uncut logs, which produces an irregular but puzzle-fit floor mosaic.
