made with rift veneer

Rift Cut is the process of slicing the veneer at a 15 degree angle to the radius of the log. This process produces straight, striped grain appearance without the flakes that appear in Quarter Sliced veneer. Red and White Oak are generally the species that are Rift sawn to avoid the flakey appearance.
