Plywood Terminology

Rotary- veneer produced by turning log on lathe against a broad knife. Rotary produces highest yeild from log. Veneer can be wide enough to produce full sheet (one piece) faces.




Quarter Slicing- achieves a straight grain appearance by slicing perpendicular to the annual growth rings. Depending on the age of the log and other factors, can produce a characteristic flecked appearance sometimes called "tiger stripping"

Plain Sliced- Veneer sliced parallel to the center of the log to achieve the appearance of flat cut veneer; the grain pattern found in most hardwood lumber. Cathedrals are formed by the innermost annual growth rings.


Rift-Cut - produced from various species of oak, dimilar to quarter sawn production. However, rift is cut to minimize the characteristic fleck (flake) appearance of quarter sawn.
