Brushed wood texture and other options from Carlisle
At Carlisle, in addition to brushed wood texture, we offer a variety of other treatments that can re-create the imperfections and boards that were milled more than a century ago and that have been lived on for several generations.
- Hand-scraped edges reproduce the look of boards that were once planed by hand to smooth the transition between floorboards. With this technique, our craftsmen use a small block plane to gently smooth the long edge of floorboards, recreating the appearance of colonial flooring and other centuries-old surfaces.
- Hit or Miss marks recreate the saw marks or kerfs that were left on boards cut at early sawmills. This technique creates a more rustic appearance and a similar style to reclaimed flooring, but at a fraction of the cost.
- Watermill techniques replicate the imperfections and rough areas that were left on floorboards which were rough sawn at riverside watermills more than a century ago.
- Footworn texturing recreates the undulating patterns from old floorboards that were planed smooth using Jack Planes, draw knives and other original woodworking tools.
- Timeworn techniques recreate the natural patterns in the grain produced by footsteps and the passage of time when boards have been lived on for more than three lifetimes.
