Our difference is in the detail

Quarter Sawn Wood

Quarter Sawing Lumber is a process in which logs are cut into quarters and then the boards are sawn at an angle away from the center of the log. This causes the growth rings or "grains to pass through the boards at a more perfect 90 degree angle.

So what are the benefits? Quarter sawn wood is not as prone to twist, warp or cup as it ages. This was very important in bygone days before modern wood treatment was an option. Quarter sawn also is stronger, holds a finish better and does not allow liquids to easily pass through it.

The finest heirloom furniture is made from quarter-sawn wood to ensure generations of durability.
