Cross-Cut To cut across the grain is called cross cut. Cross cut teeth consist of two teeth in which one points slightly to the right and the other to the left. Cross cut teeth cut wood fiber at a certain width. It works the same when cutting the grain diagonally.
Rip-Cut To cut along the grain is called rip cut. Rip cut tooth also consists of two teeth. The teeth edge is flat, and it carves out the materials as you make strokes. Since rip cut teeth carves out the material it’s cutting, there more saw dust is produced.
