Rift and Quarter Sawn Material

Rift and Quarter Sawn Material
Quarter Sawn (QS)
• Yields straight grain, narrow boards and fleck
or figure which runs across the grain. Fleck is
noticeably present in Oak, but not discernable in
Ash, Cherry, Hard Maple and Walnut.
• Quarter Sawn wood has growth rings at 60°-90°
angle to the face of the board.
• Some Quarter Sawn lumber is also produced when
lumber is Plain Sawn.
Rift Sawn (RS)
• Produces small flecks caused by
cutting through the wood rays.
• Reduces the yield of
the log and therefore
increases the cost.
• Rift Sawn wood has growth
rings at 30° to 60° angles to
the face of the boards.
• Rift Sawn lumber is desirable when straight grain
material is required without prominent fleck.
• Some Rift Sawn lumber is also produced when
lumber is Plain Sawn.
Plain Sawn (PS)
• Most common type of lumber sawn, yielding broad
grain, and wide boards.
• Plain Sawn wood has growth rings that are under
a 30° angle.
