    What Does Brush Sanding Do to Barnwood?

    Mar 5, 2014

    Much that was said in our blog post about sanded barnwood could also be said about brush sanded barnwood.  No two pieces of brush sanded barnwood will be exactly alike.  What a brush sanded piece of barnwood will look like depends on various factors, including what the board was like before it was brush sanded and how it was brush sanded.

    To provide a visual feel for what brush sanding can do to barnwood, Trestlewood brush sanded 4 pieces each of Antique Brown Rough Barnwood, Antique Gray Rough Barnwood and NatureAged Gray Circle-Sawn Barnwood.  In each case, we hit the pieces quickly with a 6" brush sander with a 100 grit nylon brush.  Check out the results below (and then look for a few "lessons learned" under the photos (many of which reinforce lessons learned with sanded barnwood)):
