Quartersawn lumber comes at a premium due to the labor it takes to mill each plank. To mill quarter sawn wood, each log is sawed at a radial angle into four quarters. Then each quarter is plain sawn. This method of quarter sawing does leave some waste, but much less than rift sawn lumber.

This method of sawing produces a plank where the tree’s growth rings are near, or totally perpendicular to the plank’s surface. This produces a straight, linear grain pattern. Our inventory of quarter sawn red and white oak looks remarkable and are preferred by furniture makers, designers, and architects because of this unique look.
