Quarter sawn oak
Gustav Stickley used Quarter sawn oak in his trademark Mission style cabinetry and furniture and relied on the wood's properties for strength, durability and beauty. No other wood has the long radiated rays that create this spectacular rich "fleck" look, similar to a prairie.
Quarter sawn oak is cut for figure, using the heart as the edge rather than the center, as in plain sawn oak, allowing rays and flecks to become visible.In addition to its unique grain patterns, quarter sawn oak is prized for its ability to take stain evenly. Glazing tends to bring out the additional grain patterns.
