  • Distressing Wood To Make It Look Old

  • And Weathered
  • This is a quick guide to use the QuickWood steel

  • brushes for distressing white wood (no stain or sealer on the wood).
  • This process can make new wood look old. It can also be used on
  • installed flooring or assembled furniture to make it weathered or to
  • look old.
  • First steep in the process of making wood look

  • old.

  • First you need to figure

  • out what type of wood your are working with
  • Hard Wood

    • Oak

    • Maple

    • Alder

    • Ash

    • Beech

    • Birch

    • Cherry

    • Chestnut

    • Elm

    • Hickory

    • Mahogany

    • Red Oak

    • Poplar

    • Walnut

  • For the Hard Wood use

  • the steel brushes here http://www.flap-wheels.com/category-s/70.htm

  • You can choose a 2”

  • head or 4” head depending on what you are doing.

  • Remember the steel

  • heads are fairly heavy so unless you are doing flooring I recommended
  • you stick with the 2” head.
  • We will start this guide talking about Hard Wood

  • Distressing

  • First you would get a

  • QuickWood head with steel brushes attached and use the 1/2” pin
  • that the head comes with and attach it to you power drill. When you
  • are ready to distress
  • wood make sure your work piece is secure as the steel brushes
  • will put some torque on the wood as you start removing wood.

  • Find the grain of the wood

  • and run the steel head with with the gain over the wood surface with
  • very slight downward pressure, make the RPM of the head do the work
  • not the pressure of the head.

  • Test the distressing first

  • in one area to see how much wood is being removed. To remove more
  • wood stay in the same spot longer, to remove less wood move the head
  • faster over the surface and don't let the steel brushes dig to deep
  • into the wood.

  • The result should be the

  • softer wood (summer) should be removed and the harder wood (winter)
  • should still be in place in lines that follow the grain in the length
  • of your work piece.

  • After successful

  • distressing its recommended to use a P180 grip flap wheel to clean up
  • the wood and make it ready for stain and sealer coat.

  • The p180 grit flap wheel

  • can also be used for sealer sanding or sanding in between coats of
  • laquer.

  • Here is the link for flap

  • wheel heads that will fit the same QuickWood head you steel brushes
  • are on.

  • 2” QuickWood head

  • http://www.flap-wheels.com/Flap-Sanding-Wheels-s/25.htm

  • 4” QuickWood head

  • http://www.flap-wheels.com/category-s/26.htm

  • After the work piece have

  • been cleaned with a p180 grip flap wheel its ready for stain or
  • sealer to be applied.

  • Use the p180 flap wheel for

  • sanding in between coats as the flap
  • wheels are flexible you will see how nice the tool works to clean
  • up the weathered parts and flat parts and makes it ready to final
  • coat.

  • This process described here

  • can be used on hard wood floors, beams, furniture, cabinets and
  • anything else made of hard wood that you want to distress.
