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
Here is a project that I did a couple years ago for my sister. She wanted "Barn Wood" looking boards, and she would paint the wording on them. So I posted the question on another forum, and Keith came to my assistance with this link: http://www.prettyhandygirl.com/how-to-make-new-wood-look-old-weathered-and-rustic/ Here are some pictures of the PIP: Here are the plain boards with the starting of distressing them The start of the "Barn Wood" process The Finished Product, ready to hang on the wall. Thank you for looking.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
