Use a card scraper.

Well someone had to say it.

I don’t think a card scraper would work. (would it?)
I’m trying to get that high and low, rough grain look.
Redwood is pretty soft so it’s not going to bad. I have 3/4 of it done. Just have a small little blaster nozzle.
Only fans out about an inch wide.

Let me sharpen the card scraper and you’ll get exactly that look!

Only joking Kevin, this is Lumberjocks where someone always says ‘use a card scraper’ on a topic about taking wood down to bare.
Is there much control over the effect you are trying to achieve?

Thanks Picklehead,
had I thought of using a card scraper I could have sharpened my own and probably got “the look” lol

Renners, I get ya,
Little bit of control, it doesn’t take too much off at a time so you have to go over it quite a few times in order to get it to where you want to be.
I’ll post a close up of it when I get a chance.

I once took a piece of oak to be ‘rusticated’ to a guy here in my village who refinishes agri equipment. He blasted the shit out of it. No distinction between summer wood and spring wood, just a mess. Very interested to see how it looks with a lighter touch.
BTW, did you know festool make texturing knives for their hand planers? Anyone know how well they work?

It’s not to heavy, kind of hard to see all the highs and lows throughout the whole door.
But when it’s finished it should leave a nicely textured look, overall.

I’m going to put 1 1/4” hammered buttons over the screw holes after I finish the door.
Here’s a pick of what will be the back of the door (what you see when your in the room)
(Home Depot Redwood) Ugh!

For those without a sandblaster, Scotch roloc setups have a bristle brush that will produce the same effect.
