Hand Planed Time-Worn
Hand Planed Time-Worn texture option gives the wood a dated look that fits well in older homes, or ones with a rustic touch. These pieces are created by using a hand plane and then hand sanding. This process is repeated until our craftsman are satisfied.
Hand Scraped is much like hand planed, but rather than using a hand plane, a scraper is used to create an older, classic looking texture. To create this effect, a scraper is used along with a sander to finish the texture. The scraper is given numerous passes over the piece, texturing it beautifully. Finally the sander is run across several times to give a softer finish that suits any home.
Wire Brushed textures look very wavy and incredibly unique, this is because they are done with a wire brush sander. Wire Brushing retrieves the soft grain that isn't normally visible due to several layers of wood that must be sanded down for the true grain to materialize. Wire Brush effects appear after several passes with the wire brush sander as the true grain is revealed. The Wire Brushed Texture works best on wood with an open grain, such asOak and Ash. On other tighter grain wood species, the Wire Brushed Texture will not have the same effect and will not be as visible.
Saw Cut (Circular Saw)
Saw Cut is run across the grain, and adds a rough look that many appreciate with other wooden features in a home. The piece is taken to a Circular Saw and, using a very controlled cut, split to clean up the edges and make them more rustic and unique.
Saw Cut (Band Saw)
Saw Cut is run across the grain, and adds a rough look that many appreciate with other wooden features in a home. The piece is taken to a Band Saw and, using a very controlled cut, split to clean up the edges and make them more rustic and unique.
Chiseled Edges are created with a chisel and give the wood a rough, artisanal touch that looks stunning. To create chiseled edges, we take a chisel to the edges, running it all along the sides. This gives the edges and the overall board a much older look that fits great in any home. Chiseled edges are a great way to make a piece more comfortable and fit in a wider range of room styles.
Dings & Dents
Dings & Dents are natural features that appear naturally in wood and give the piece a rustic look. Dings & Dents are created using a chisel, screwdrivers, drills, saws, and numerous other tools to dent the piece. These tools are often either dropped, or intentionally stabbed into the piece to give it a rustic look. This rustic look comes from the aged effect dings & dents has.
Similar to Dings & Dents, Worm Holes appear naturally, but add a random spread of holes that texture the board. Although Worm Holes appear naturally, we create ours with tools and techniques. Some of which include drill bits, nails, an engraver, among others. Our main key for this is to make them appear completely random, like natural Worm Holes would.
Distressed wood is wood that is given a rustic look by distressing it, ie, beating it with hammers, chains, anything to make it look older than it is. Our wood is distressed by layering the customers choice of any of the previous options. This means that any and all of the previous texture options can be layered to create a unique texture.
