Are there any other tools that do this other than the Festool HL850 planer? I like this texture and seen others that you can make by adding different blades the to Festool planer. Are there other brands that do this that aren’t as expensive as festool? Or other methods to make it in a reasonable time?

Any other brand tools like this or other methods?

The texture in the first picture is replicating the surface left by an adze. Using an adze to make this surface will make it look more authentic, but it will take longer, much, much, much longer! The other two could be done on a router table with reasonable speed given multiple passes, but still take longer than a single pass. The third option would be a moulder with custom cut knives, not sure how one might do with the faux rough hewn look, but the other two would ideal for creating in a moulder.

The first one can be created with a angle grinder and abrasive or metal wheels.

You can regrind blades on a regular handheld planer to do the
broad curves. The others will be trickier because the blades
don’t protrude very much. The Festool cutterheads are
relieved for each profile. It does do a nice job but you can
create a similar texture with an adze if you don’t mind
some tearout.

I might do what mbs said, I already have one of the Saburr tooth wheels for my grinder so I will experiment with it and other wheels to get the first picture. The other 2 pictures I am not as interested in as I am the first so I will figure out something later.

Have your say...
