Rift-cut White Oak

Rift-cut White Oak maintains many of the core traits that make Huntwood’s standard Oak such a great choice. Additionally, the rift-sawing technique used in the milling of this variation produces a linear grain pattern with reduced flecking and minimal figuring. White Oak’s inherently open grain characteristics serve to enunciate Rift-cut’s generally straighter grain structure. This aesthetic is created by taking the raw lumber and cutting it at angles ranging from 30-60 degrees. Typically, large flat surfaces will exhibit the defining characteristics of Rift-cut White Oak more readily than pieces containing detailed profiles. Rift-cut White Oak varies in color, ranging from a whitish-grey to a light brown, with visible greenish hues and occasional rose tints. Mineral streaks will be more common with White Oak than its Red sibling. It machines well and is generally receptive to a variety of stains and finishes. It is available in all stain colors that are currently offered on Huntwood’s standard Oak wood species.
