Wood Flooring Cuts - The angle at which a board is cut makes big differences in how the finished product looks. Wood flooring is either plain-sawn, quarter-sawn or rift-sawn.
Plain-sawn is the most common cut. The board contains more variation than the other two cuts because figure patterns resulting from the growth rings are more conspicuous. Quarter-sawing produces less board feet per log than plain-sawing and is therefore more of a premium.
Quarter-sawn wood twists and cups less and wears more evenly. Rift-sawn is similar to quarter-sawn, but the cut is made at a slightly different angle.
