Creating Rustic, Hand-Hewn Effects

Restoring Dororthy

A popular design trend right now is old, rustic style effects with wood. The HL 850 Planer is the perfect tool to produce these effects quickly and easily. Not only that, but your clients will pay a premium to get this look. Check out this video where Jory Brigham demonstrates two of the three rustic planer heads available for the HL 850.

Choose from three planer heads: the undulating head for hand hewn effects, the coarse rustic head for a heavily destressed look, or the fine rustic head for a lightly distressed appearance.

For final touches, use a Festool sander with an interface pad to smooth out the effect to give a more finished appearance.
