|Quarter-sawing gets its name from the fact that the log is first
quartered lengthwise, resulting in wedges with a right angle ending at
approximately the center of the original log. Each quarter is then cut
separately by tipping it up on its point and sawing boards successively
along the axis. That results in boards with the annual rings mostly
perpendicular to the faces. Quarter sawing yields boards with straight
striped grain lines, greater stability than flatsawn wood, and a
distinctive ray and fleck figure.
Quartersawn boards have two advantages. They are more resistant against warping with changes in moisture and shrinkage. The quartersawing method of cutting... renders quarter sawn oak structurally stronger, also finer in grain, and, as shown before, less liable to warp and check than when sawn in any other way.
The second advantage of quartersawn wood is the decorative pattern on the board. In quarter sawn wood the saw cuts across the growth rings, the visible grain is much straighter; it is this evenness of the grain that gives quarter sawn wood its greater stability.
In addition to the grain, quarter sawn oak will also often display a pattern of medullary rays, seen as subtle wavy ribbon-like patterns across the straight grain. Medullary rays grow in a radial fashion in the living tree, so while flat-sawing would cut across the rays, quarter-sawing puts them on the face of the board. This ray pattern has made quarter sawn wood especially desirable for furniture and decorative panelling.
Quarter sawn oak was a key feature of the decorative style of the American Arts and Crafts movement.
