This finish process
wears the wood and raises the grain - just like mother nature does. Hearthstone has
developed a unique bead-blasting process that enhances the depth of the grain without the
pitting caused by common sandblasting. White pine timbers for log or timber frame
homes can be WeatherAged. You can see the dramatic effects in this
photo of a hewn and WeatherAged log wall, which shows the wood without stain. After stain is applied, the effect is dramatic.
We now have the capability to use a special brushing system to simulate WeatherAged wood that is not hand-hewn. This requires that the timbers be HeartDried first. Ask your Project Manager for details.
