Rustication

The process of antiquing wood

Wood rustication is a process of antiquing or aging wood, performed using wire brushes that remove the soft part of the material. This process is undertaken in carpentry workshops both for those who produce furniture, doors and shutters, frames and tables, and also those who produce wood flooring (parquetry) etc. For this type of process, special powers are put into play regarding the motors.

Why perform this process?

Among the various processes that can be carried out, rustication actually improves the characteristics of the wood. With a process of this kind, in fact, there are many advantages, that will allow you, for example, to:

  • Highlight the hardest part of the wood (the grain)
  • Simulate material wear due to time
