Flat Cutting

Flat Cutting Here the half log's core side is fixed to the flitch cutting table. When cutting begins, the veneer sheets have a vivid grain structure with well-centered heart. Toward the middle a cathedral grain continues, whereas near the end of the flitch some straight grain quarters develop.


True Quarter

True Quarter The log is quartered with the knife's cut being made at right angles to the annual rings. The veneers reveal a stripy quartered grain.


Bastard Quarter Cut

Bastard Quarter Cut With this cutting method veneers with a semi-flowery texture are produced from a quartered log. The annual rings are only cut on one side at a lower angle. Joining these veneers will provide for interesting textures varying from flowery to quartered stripy grain.


Flat Cut Quarters

Flat Cut Quarters Unlike quarter cutting, the quarter or third of a log is cut from the outside to the log's center so that the annual rings are cut flat. The veneers produced in this way have a flat cut, flower "cathedral" structure.


Rotary Cutting

Rotary Cutting The rotary cutting of logs split into thirds or quarters brings out the individual beauty of such high-quality species as Bird's-Eye Maple, Bubinga, and above all, decorative burls such as Walnut, Redwood, Madrona, Maple, Ash or Poplar with grain infinitely better than would be possible using slicing machines.


Stay-log Cutting

Stay-log Cutting This process has developed from the eccentric peeling technique described above. The cut through the annual rings is considerably flatter so that it produces all flat cut grain with no quarters and somewhat wider sheets with a flowery structure. Another advantage of the stay-log technique is that even woods with a smaller log diameter can be used commercially.


Rift Cutting

Rift Cutting Log segments can be fixed on the machine for stay-log cutting. The manufacture of vertical grain veneers, i.e., veneers with a stripy texture, can be produced using this technique.


Cutting from the heart

Cutting from the heart Unlike rift cutting and half round cutting from the outside in, the log can also be split into thirds and then peeled from the inside out. This has the advantage of producing only veneers with cathedral or narrow heart, but no quarters. In addition, most of the sap stays in the core. Unfortunately, the net yield from the log is somewhat reduced because of the fact that you now have three cores instead of two, as you get when you are cutting two half round flitches from the outside inwards.
