Rip cut

Rip cut

In woodworking, a rip cut is a cut made parallel to the grain of the wood. Rip cuts are commonly made with a table saw, but other types of saws can also be used, including hand rip saws, radial arm saws and band saws. Unlike cross-cutting, which shears the wood fibers, a rip saw works more like a chisel, lifting off small splinters of wood.

Circular saw blades designed for rip cutting have a smaller number of larger teeth than similar blades designed for cross cutting.
