Mission Style - Quarter Sawn Oak Furniture
Mission furniture is a style that originated in the late 19th Century and is easily recognized by it's simple rustic appearance.
The Arts and Craft Movement included Mission style furniture. Names such as Frank Lloyd Wright, William Morris and Gustav Stickley are often associated with this style.
Quarter - Sawn refers to the direction that the wood is cut. To get quarter - sawn grain the log is cut in half, then each half is cut into quarters. Each quarter is then cut one section at a time.
Quarter sawn makes the natural grain even more striking than if sawn the standard way, which is horizontally. Quarter sawing allows the grains natural flakes and rays to come alive.
Quarter sawn oak does not expand or contract as much as horizontally sawn wood, making it more stable. Quarter sawn will make your customized piece all the more unique.
