Talking feathering hardwood?

hello everyone. Just wondering what "feathered" hardwood looks like. I was searching for hardwood and a sales clerk told me a certain beech was discontinued for "feathering". Don't know why I didn't ask them at the time, but now it has me thinking. Thanks!

Feathering is often used to describe loosened grain, shelling, or lifting of the grain. "Just wondering what "feathered" hardwood looks like." Grain will be raised and often has a corrugated appearance. Grain may appear raised or separated.
