Rough Timber Surface for Reduced Timber Maintenance

Having a roughened timber surface can be beneficial in a number of ways, one of which is reducing timber maintenance.

The majority of timber machined is sold as ‘dressed’ which means it has a smooth and almost sanded appearance. The main reason for this, arguably, are economics and design trends.

In the context of reducing timber maintenance, having a roughened surface is very advantageous.

The purpose of a roughened surface is that it raises the fibres on the wood, opening up the cells and allowing the oil to penetrate deeper into the timber and hold more pigment.

A timber's surface can be opened up by wire brushing, bandsawing, or sanding. All our oil finished products are supplied with a bandsawn finish.
