True QuarterSawn


True quartersawn lumber is produced when the growth rings of the log are sawn as close to perpendicular as possible. Each board produced using this method of sawing possesses grain patterns that are both unique and beautiful. In addition to this, quartersawning produces lumber that is inherently more stable than plain sawn lumber. These features make quartersawn lumber an excellent choice for high quality flooring, millwork, or furniture.

At Brownlee Lumber, we use modern sawing equipment and technology to produce some of the finest quartersawn lumber in White Oak, Red Oak, and Black Cherry. Our Rift & Quartered lumber is a True Quartersawn product produced using traditional sawing methods, guaranteeing you the best figure and grain pattern possible.

    BLC has surfacing facilities available on site and can S2S to your specific requirements.

These may include color issues, checking, planer splits, pin knots, thin ends or thin boards, etc..
