Quarter Sawn Oak

 Quarter Sawn Oak

David Gunton supplies oak parquet, marquetry and boards, even wideboards, in Quarter Sawn Oak. This is oak which has been sawn with the saw blade lined in parallel with the medullary rays. These are seen as fine pale coloured lines radiating from the centre of the circle of the cut log to the outside. They show on the face of the oak as pale coloured, even silvery, 'squiggles'. These rows of medullary cells bind the annual rings together. As a result, Quarter Sawn Oak is much more dimensionally stable than flat sawn or tangentially sawn oak. It is also much more durable under heavy wear. Quarter Sawn Oak is highly sought after by makers of fine furniture and the best quality oak panelling. Much of the finest Georgian oak country furniture was made from very lovely Quarter Sawn Oak. The section of floor to the right is of Quarter Sawn Oak boards 200mm wide, 10mm thick bonded to 18mm plywood over underfloor heating. Before you dismiss it as 'too busy', have a look at the next few photos to see how the effect of Quarter Sawn Oak differs according to the situation and other stylistic elements of a room.
