Quarter-sawn oak is a more structurally sound hardwood than flat-sawn oak. It resists cupping, twisting, warping, moisture penetration, and raised grain. One of the most sought after features of quarter-sawn white and red oak is the flecks and the rays that appear on the face of the boards as a result of cutting along the growth rings. These flecks and rays can be quite dramatic and add a unique, striking quality to the wood. The flecks and rays that abound in quarter-sawn oak are particularly prized and are essential features of many types of furniture.
