New Cabinet Wood Type: Quartersawn Oak
Long preferred by those patient practitioners in the arts and crafts tradition, greater numbers of homeowners are beginning to appreciate the unique advantages the technique of Quartersawn Oak yields.
How It's Made
To achieve the look of Quartersawn Oak, logs are cut into quarters, and boards are sawn at an angle away from the center. The result is a grain that is structurally stronger, noticeably finer and less liable to warping. It’s also considered by many to be a more beautiful cut, with less cathedral graining often seen in standard cut oak. Quartersawn Oak makes a dramatic statement in any space.
