How would you approximate this finish?5/21
high build clear on rough-sawn lumber
Man, that is ugly! I guess you can make it from just about any species of wood since you can barely see it! Plenty of base stain, color in the seal coat, then too much top coat.
Thanks, I was referring to the distressing or rough sawing.
I have to use sq raised panel doors, I don't usually make them.
I guess as you said just get some rough sawn and skip plane.
Thank you for the input.
But was hoping for another idea on it. To get that look
Pat , I just completed a media cabinet and I needed to make it look rough sawn similar to your picture but we used the term Random to describe it .
Thanks D, that is along the lines of what I was thinking.
Maybe a jig that pivots the sander as well as holds it at an angle.
I was also pondering using a 20" disc sander somehow. Maybe feeding in the stock at an angle. But then I would have to build the doors.
I like your idea on this.
Pat , I tried the pivot idea but because the disc is rotating it caused road rash between the marks and actually sorta squigeld around out of control .
You used an electric?
Was the jig wood?
Experiment with a cheap high speed steel blade like the ones we used to get with a table saw usually a combination blade but i think a rip would be better with not many teeth 18 or so. The kind you sharpen at home with a file then over set a few teeth and experiment.
Electric Makita small disc sander and a wood jig to keep the disc on an angle and not allow the heel to make marks the wrong way .
just a thought ---
a buddy of mine rented a flooring sander from home depot in attempt to refinish his oak floors. the machine was too much for him to handle and his floor looks alot like that now!! LOL
maybe check out the post in the Shop Built Equipment forum here, titled Frankensaw. should fire up some inspiration
That is perfect. Except I would have to then build the doors.
Which make sense. Just seems like less work to use D's idea.
Time to experiment.
Here is a look at the texture and a quick jig I made .
The center board is pushed through bandsaw with resaw blade just enough to scratch and gouge the surface , the same with the outer boards but with a tablesaw . Those boards look narrow enough to use tablesaw anything wider I would use a disk sander . Then push through wide belt sander to ease the roughest parts , and a whole bunch of ro sanding.
