Two Ways to Cut Oak - When building oak kitchen cabinets, it is possible to choose straight or plain cut or quarter-saw. The difference will be very obvious. Oak has strips of a special tissue that radiates from the center of the tree or log out to the edge. These strips of tissue look a great deal like spokes of a wheel.

Quarter sawing does not produce the same effect in narrow strips, but it can be spectacular in cabinet doors.
