In every woodworking project, you’ll need a flat board of woods as your basic material. For making a flat board, you have to cut it from logs. Different way of cutting your log will result different grain. So in order to get the grain as you wish for, you have to cut your log in a particular way. Not only that, your blade orientation to the log and its growth rings will also become a factor to determine what type of cut is fit for your lumber. There are three types of basic lumber you should now. Plain Sawn, Quarter Sawn, and Rift Sawn.
