Rift Oak

Rift Cut or Rift Sawn Oak is the most dimensionally stable cut out between Plain and Quarter Sawn Oak. Red Oak is typically used for Plain Sawn and Quarter Sawn Oak, but White Oak is used for a Rift Sawn Oak. Because of the way that Rift Sawn Oak is cut, it produces a unique linear appearance, without any of the flecking that a Quarter Sawn Oak would display. Rift Sawn Oak is the most costly out of the three types of cut oak, as it is the most labor intensive. Rift Sawn Oak can come in a number of stains and will darken or golden over time.
