Have you heard the terms quartersawn, riftsawn and flatsawn and wondered what on earth they mean? Often, sawyers like myself struggle to define these terms among ourselves, let alone explain them to others.  I am by no means an expert on the subject, but I have been working with and learning from sawyers for most of a decade now, and I feel like I’ve finally gotten a grasp on what these terms mean. In this blog post I’ll give some examples and definitions that work well for me as I’m sawing and that I use everyday when talking with customers.
