RIFT CUT

 

Uses various species of oak. The rift, or comb-grain effect, is obtained by slicing slightly across the medullar rays. This accentuates the vertical grain and minimizes the flake. Rift cut veneers are more expensive due to lower yield from the log.

PLAIN SLICED

 

Is the most widely used. It is manufactured by advancing a half log against a stationary knife in an up-and-down movement. The resulting cut is characterized by straight grain intermixed with cathedrals.

QUARTER CUT

 

Uses the same cutting method as plain sliced veneer, except the log is cut into quarters prior to slicing. This method bisects annual growth rings and results in a straight grain or ribbon-striped mahogany appearance.

ROTARY CUT

 

Is manufactured by advancing a rotating log against a stationary knife. Since this cut follows the log's annual growth rings, a wide, bold grain pattern is produced.
