Veneer slicing techniques

Back to techniques

Rotary Cut
A whole log is mounted in a lathe and turned against the blade. It produces continuous sheets of veneer with great variations in pattern.

Quarter Slicing
The slicing is made perpendictular to the annual growth rings of the
tree. Thus creating a straight grain effect.

Rift Cut
A straight grain effect similar to true quarter cut veneer most commonly used when slicing varieties of Oaks.

Plain Slicing/Flat Cut
By slicing parallel to the center of the log, a raised “cathedral effect” is formed by the innermost growth rings
