Skip-Planed Texture is achieved by using the texture of weathered timbers or lumber and lightly planing that as-is face. The look of the skip-planed material will vary substantially from piece to piece. Some of the characteristics that will vary substantially from piece to piece are: original weathering (brown/gray, deeply checked/relatively smooth); original texture (circlesawn/bandsawn/weathered smooth); species (red/white oak); and color (light tan/pinkish/brown/gray/etc.) Some pieces (roughly 70% of the square footage) will "clean up" entirely and have no skipping.
Because the finish face of Skip-Planed flooring is not entirely milled, there will often be a slight "lip" along the seams where two floor boards come together upon installation. Attention to slight differences from piece to piece may minimize the impact of these differences, but will not eliminate it as an issue entirely.
