When wood is initially milled, it's left in a very rough state. Chainsaw marks, large gouges, and metal scrape marks from handling through large equipment will be prevalent throughout the lumber.
Skip planing is the act of lightly passing over one or both sides in order to expose the face of the wood. In doing so, the wood is left with an "almost finished" look. When staining or painting, the uneven surface gives an inconsistent look to the wood. This look can be very desirable in any rustic or distressed style setting.At BOSSWoodworks, we skip plane both faces of the wood to determine which is best. Generally speaking, a thin layer of polyurethane is applied in order to maximize the texture. If only the look is desired, we bar top it to smooth the surface while maintaining a clear look for the texture and color of the wood.
