I want to make some fir boards look old and battered.
I was thinking of burning it and then wire brushing it off.
seems like this would be pretty messy though.
It will be painted after.
Where can I find some information on other ways to do this?
To send me e-mail remove the sevens

Use whatever works to get the look you want. Some folks swing a chain
against the wook, file the edges, a few hammer dents, drop some things
on it. But whatever you do, the distressing has to look as if it was
made a long time ago, and then it too has worn smooth. after beating
things up a bit, lightly sand the boards to soften the dents, scratches
etc. whatever you do to distress the wood.
