Quarter Sawn Oak Blanks

Quarter Sawn Oak Blanks

Quarter sawn English Oak with outstanding grain pattern. 'Quarter sawn' refers to the way the timber is sawn at the sawmill. The growth rings run across the thickness of the boards instead of along the width (see the diagram in the photos). This results in the wood being more stable, resistant to warping, and showcases the medullary rays to great effect. These impressive 'flecks' can be seen in the photos.  Quarter sawn timber is not as widely available as plain sawn as it is more difficult and expensive to produce.
