The process results in lumber with a distinctive grain that is often used in high-end applications in which the appearance of the wood is an important consideration. Because the grain of quarter-sawn wood is straighter than that of flat-sawn lumber, the quarter-sawn wood is significantly more stable. The straight grain is generally thought to have a superior look to the grain of flat-sawn wood, in which the grain is parallel to the surface of the lumber and tends to accentuate the loops and swirls of the grain. The quarter-saw method also reveals the medullary rays in the wood, distinct stripes that add an attractive character to the wood.
Quarter-sawing produces less lumber from each log than flat-sawing, and it requires more labor because of the necessity of rotating the quarter before each cut. These disadvantages add to the cost of the wood, and the added cost can outweigh the primarily cosmetic benefits for most typical applications.
