Saw this on something like "50 Handy Tools for the DIYer" I must admit I had some customers that sold "fake antique", er, reproduction, furniture and I had to use some tools like this on occasion. I normally just resorted to an awl or string of keys and nuts. When distressing, a little goes a long way. One of my favorites was a worm hole pattern that was exactly the same in exactly one occurrence on each part of a table and chair set. Yeah, that looks genuine. When I was in a refinishing class, they had a distressing tool that looked something like a cross between a mallet and a midieval torture device. But I do recommend distressing pine because it's not a matter of if, but when it gets dents in it. New ones just blend in. https://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-Varathane-243197-Distressing-Holing/dp/B0039ZGOUI
