A face grain displays the natural grain of the wood as it appears on the widest portion of the board after milling. The grain is cut into blocks and flipped 180 degrees, so the natural forces of the wood shrinking and growing work against each other. This keeps the product true and free from warping. A face grain takes stain well and gives the countertop a more natural wood appearance.
