Sawing Logs to Achieve Different Grain Patterns – Ask Matt #11

A board can have a varied look depending on how it was cut from the log.  I’ve been asked how to cut a log to achieve different grain patterns and what the difference is between plain sawn, rift sawn, and quarter sawn.  In this video I go through the basics of each cut of lumber and share my typical thought process as I slab a log.
