Quarter sawing
« on: November 19, 2014, 10:10:15 PM »
Need a little help can someone tell me the process of quarter sawing a log and what kind of wood to saw that way. I take it that it changes the grain of the wood thanks.

Here is a rather extensive thread that has been going on for about a week now; Rift sawing a log vs. rift sawn lumber.  It also includes much information about QS.

Good reply Magic. Allen, there are several videos on YOU TUBE you can look at showing QS Technics.
At times I QS quite a few logs for just 1 customer but I still go and re-watch the You Tube videos on QS.
It just interest me that much.  :)

My favorite……if I can say that  ;D…….is a log at least with a 20" diameter and the pith running in a straight line, centered from one end to the other.

Also look at the thread Magicman was talking about. There are some do's and don't's in that thread showing off centered piths and what value they have. Enjoy reading that thread….its pretty good.  :)

It is a lot of turning and time consuming on a band mill but very easy to do with a swinger.  I QS almost all of my oak and sycamore with my Peterson that is 20" dia. or more.  I recently sawed a 48" red oak almost entirely QS and it made beautiful mostly 8" to 10" wide lumber.
