Rift and Quarter: Flooring that is marked or specified as Rift and Quarter Sawn is a combination of Quarter Sawn and Rift Sawn developing from the production run.
Quartersawn: Quartersawing produces less board feet per log than plainsawing and is therefore more expensive. Quartersawn wood twists and cups less and wears more evenly.
Riftsawn is similar to quartersawing, but the cut is made at a slightly different angle to avoid the bold flake effect caused by rays which radiate from the center of the oak log. It produces a comb-grain effect.
