Im in the process of designing and prototyping a new product, however I have run in to a problem. When you buy rough lumber from your dealer it has ‘fuzzy’ bits and is kinda furry. My product is designed to look rough like that however the pieces of wood are only 7mm thickness. Any solutions for making wood look rough like that again any input would be treaty appreciated.

On that thin of stock, maybe try very course sandpaper? Either that or buy the rough lumber and resaw it down to your thickness.

I’d say get 5/4 (roughly 32mm) thickness and then resaw in half. Use top and bottom one then
