Grain filling.

In this project i used pine and purposely scraped it on the surface.
the Idea is to remove the softer parts of the timber. so that the grain would still remain their.
you can use a steel brush but then you need to wet the timber.

after you did that you can scrape the softer parts away and then apply your grain filler, or wood filler as it is also known.

On these pieces I used Imbua filler then yoou let them dry. after that you can sand of the remaining filler and

then your done. you can spray them if you feel the need I sprayed a Sanding sealer and 2 coats of super satin Lacquer.

Its another alternative than the normal staining

Let me know what you guys think.

I like, how your method accentuates and colorizes the grain!

Beautifully. This way is called as “Brashirovaniye”. Polishing also, but instead of a metal brush put a synthetic brush on the Bulgarian. I use Belink’s (Slovenia) paint instead of hard putty. Then an emery cloth (nozhdachka) you smooth out winter (a firm layer). Good luck.

You can also run a torch over the wood a few times and do this. Just give a light sanding afterwards to knock the grain back down.
