Which Grade Am I In?

I have looked at hardwood floors and have seen some unfamiliar language.

If they said 1rst grade, 2nd Grade, etc, I think I would understand. What is Tavern grade, this is the one grade that sticks out in memory. What other type grades are there and in what particular order?

Cool

1st grade lumber is clear (no knots or defects....the highest grade).
2nd grade lumber can have certain smaller size, but solid, knots.
3rd grade can have larger knots and some defects.
4th grade is junk quality lumber, and may be "tavern" grade. LOL (as in in "who cares...I'm plastered in a tavern"). Never heard of "tavern" grade, but it must not be too good.

Tavern grade and cabin grade is a nice name for the lowest of the grades. The main grades are Clear, Select, #1,#2 and #3. The Tavern grade would be in the #3 range.

Thank you for your help. I am not looking for #1, I want some variations in the wood. I just needed to know whether or not the "tavern" grade was what I wanted. I had a feeling it was not but now I know for certain it is not.
