Riven stock is stronger than sawn stock-it is an aggregation of parallel long fibers. Riven wood is less likely to absorb and lose moisture. No end grain is found on its broad surfaces.Moisture content change of wood riven on the ray plane causes predictable change in cross section and the stock will not crack, cup, warp or twist.
