    When you cut through the center of a log the center 1 or 2 slices are quarter sawn.

    Your explanation of quarter sawn vs plain is great! You can get one or two pieces of quarter sawn lumber from the true center of the log if you split the log dead center first giving you a really nice wide board, TRUE?
