Usually the soft fibers that are removed by brushing are formed in the spring, because it is at this time of the year that the intensive growth of annual rings happens.
Wood brushing is advisable in the case when you want to create a distinctive surface texture. Due to the fact that the process involves removal of soft layers, the best way for this is medium and soft wood species. These include spruce, pine and larch. On the other hand, hardwoods such as oak have significantly enlarged pores in the brushing process.
In our production process, beams undergo the brushing stage.
Brushing is a special process that removes the soft fibers from the top layer of wood, resulting in a surface with a distinct structure. The resulting effect can be called artificial aging of the wood.
Brushing opens up ample opportunities for further artistic finishing of wood during the painting process, for example, to achieve a patina effect, when the base is painted in one color, and the veins in another, darker or lighter.
At the production of our company, after processing on automatic lines, beams pass the last stage of manual finishing in the workshop of artistic finish, where our craftsmen give them a specific “antique” appearance.
This technique allows us to achieve maximum realism of the resulting surface. The brushed wood looks like new, but has an original texture. It is also recommended to order a coating with special lacquers and dyes, which allows you to achieve the maximum effect. It is the right subsequent play with the color of the wood allows you to give the product a special charm. Hollows or pores of brushed wood are painted in a darker color, and hard areas (ridges), on the contrary, in a lighter color.
