    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #124

    Question

    List in order of least to most expensive:

    Plain-sliced red oak Rift-cut white oak Combed-grain red oak Plain-sliced white oak

    What is combed grain?

    Answer

    Typically, from least to most expensive:

    Plain-sliced red oak
    Plain-sliced white oak
    Rift-cut white oak
    Combed-grain red oak

    Combed-grain is a selection from rift-cut wood material that is distinguished by the tightness and straightness of its grain.
