Rift/Quartersawn 3/4" x 2-1/4" Red Oak Unfinished Select
To make quarter sawn flooring, the log is first cut in quarters and then sawn perpendicular to the growth rings. This cut produces a floor with a tight vertical grain which looks good and is very stable. When quarter sawn flooring is introduced to changing humidity, wood expands and contracts vertically instead of horizontally. This characteristic makes quarter sawn flooring an ideal choice for installations over radiant heat.
