I am trying to replicate this texture and finish for several doors.

This is carved on 1×6 planks which make up the outer surfaces of the doors. They are mounted on 1” ply. I’m trying to replicate the carved texture but I have no idea what tool/technique should be used. I’d also like to know the ideal wood species.

Any ideas would be helpful.

I looks like adze work to me.

Yep, thanks to you I’m 100% sure this is an adze.

What’s the ideal species to replicate this would you say?

I added some more images so we can make the best match.

Most hardwood would do better at not splintering than softwood. If you were going to use softwood, something like bull pine or other harder softwoods with straight grain might work better. The picture looks like 2 by’s.

I was thinking Birch, what do you think?.

One thing about these doors is that they are completely clear. There is no visible grain or knots. I don’t know if it’s the stain or the wood that makes grain invisible.

The planks are 1×6 T and G.

It won’t replicate it but check out the Festool
HL850 planer. Texture heads are available for it.

If you want the texture in the photos exactly,
by hand is probably the way to go… and lots
of sanding.

It wouldn’t surprise me if the example texture was
done with some sort of head on a die grinder. It
looks to me like the cutterhead was at a slight
angle, perhaps to allow for the operators hand
on the tool body.

Birch would be very good. Could it be that the surface is painted brown?
