This cut follows the log’s annual growth rings, providing a general bold random appearance.
Plain Sliced (Flat Cut)
Slicing is done parallel to a line through the center of the log. Cathedral and straight grained patterns result. The individual pieces of veneer are kept in the order they are sliced, permitting a natural grain progression when assembled as veneer faces.
This cut is in a radial direction to the pith to achieve a straight grain pattern. In Red & White Oak ray fleck is produced and the amount may be unlimited.
This cut is at a slight angle to the radial to produce a quartered appearance without excessive ray fleck. Rift is only available in Red and White Oak.
