Quarter Sawn Scottish Oak

Look at the beautiful grain in our Quarter Sawn Scottish Oak!

Not only is Quarter Sawn timber simply stunning in its appearance but compared to plain sawn timber it is much more structurally sound and resistant to cupping, twisting, warping, moisture penetration, and raised grain. One of the most sought after features of quarter sawn wood is the flecks and the rays that appear on the face of the boards as a result of cutting along the growth rings. In Oak wood especially, these flecks and rays can be quite dramatic and add a unique, striking quality to the wood making it extremely popular for cabinetry, flooring, high-end custom crafts and furniture, it is the traditional wood used in making mission style furniture (a design that emphasises simple horizontal and vertical lines and flat panels that accentuate the grain of the wood).

Quarter Sawn Scottish Oak is available from our Timber-shop - visit and view now, we're open Monday to Thursday 8am to 4pm and can be found at Inzievar Woods KY12-8HB near Oakley Dunfermline. For Sawmill orders and enquiries please contact out Sawmill directly at
