Rift and quarter sawn hardwood flooring is different, from start to finish. In order to obtain the distinctive straight-grained appearance of quarter sawn lumber, logs must be quartered then each quarter milled into lumber separately. As a result of this process, a different part of the wood grain is shown, highlighting large bands called medullary rays.
Manufacturing quarter sawn lumber takes different log requirements, milling processes, drying schedule, and manufacturing process. Once all of that is complete, the making of a premium hardwood floor can begin.
Rift and quarter sawn hardwood floors are beautiful and distinctive. The unique look of quarter sawn hardwoods lend itself to an array of design styles, from traditional to modern. When stained, the medullary ray “figure” pops, practically lifting it off the face of the board.
