Rift Sawn

July 30, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Riftsawn lumber is cut with the growth rings anywhere from 30-60 degrees to the face of the board. This produces boards with incredibly “straight” face grain patterns. The boards are also more stable than plain sawn boards but not quite as stable as quarter sawn.
