Quartersawn is a method of sawing oak so the cut is made parallel to the wood's medullary rays instead of across. This cut yields a limited quantity of top grade boards featuring ray flake, and it binds the perpendicular fibers together, giving the oak its amazing strength. Quartersawn white oak is a superior species of wood and is much less likely to crack or warp than when it is flat sawn. This method is used in the Cratsman style construction that is sold at The Mission Motif.
