QUARTER (FALSE)

The veneer produced is generally straight grain material, often with a slight swing where the faulty part of the heart of the log has been removed.

QUARTER (TRUE)

Leaves cut in this method produce fairly straight (parallel growth rings) grain patterns.

ROTARY VENEER

Veneer produced by this method has a non-descript swirl pattern.This type of veneer is produced by peeling a log which has been centred on a lathe

PLAIN SLICING

By slicing parallel to the center of the log, a raised "cathedral effect" is formed by the innermost growth rings

HALF ROUND SLICING

Sliced on an arc parallel to the center of the log, this cut achieves a flat-cut veneer appearance

RIFT CUT

CROWN

Veneer cut from this part of the log produce leaves with crown pattern with some straight grain either side.
As the crown cut moves through the log towards the centre,
the leaves become wider with the crown being narrower and more well defined, with wider straight grain sections on
either side.

This straight grain cut is derived by slicing red and white oak at a slight angle to minimize the irregularities in the wood
