Quartersawn White Oak
Depending on the way the logs are sawn into timber (rift-cut, flat sliced, flat sawn, rotary cut quartered) White Oak can have varying looks. Many distinctive patterns emerge: figure flakes, fine lines, pin stripes, leafy grains and watery figures. Color is light to darker gray brown. White Oak that is quartersawn will produce dramatic rays and flecks or flakes that are popular in Mission style furniture or antiques.
