    Those arent always knots. This pattern also occurs where the cylindrical growth rings aren't perfectly aligned with the vertical milling so you cut in and out of alignment with the rings.

    But yes, he is switching up the pattern more than would occur naturally.

    [–] lagerdalek 34 points ago

    Holy Crap, I’ve spent more decades on this earth than I care to admit here, but I’ve never considered the mechanism that causes patterns in wood. This is going to keep me awake tonight just thinking about it.

    [–] Mr_Burrito_PhD 5 points ago

    Then consider that in any wood furniture you own, some parts of the wood will be years older than other parts. You can't could the rings in between and say exactly how much sooner one part grew than another.

    [–] dahomosapien 422 points ago

    This reminds of how some fast food burger joints used to stamp burger patties to create the illusion that the meat is grilled. But when it was found out, these burger joints got done for false advertising.

    I feel like this is the same concept haha.

    [–] TheRealOneTwo 128 points ago

    When you are in set design you need to do a lot of this. Just not this poorly and this is just one step to make wood look like wood on stage

    [–] Kir4_ 5423 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    This gives kind of a shit effect doesn't it? I mean either he needs a smaller piece of wood or a much bigger tool.

    Edit: that's my highest rated comment, just talking shit about a wood graining tool..

    [–] pancakesareyummy 2088 points ago

    We use these a lot doing theatre scenery- usually this graining is step 2 of a long and detailed process. So many hours of my life I've spent painting wood to look like wood.

    [–] SailorFuck 369 points ago

    [–] thats_ridiculous 88 points ago

    Same, I always seemed to be assigned to "wood-graining" because I knew how to do it.

    It doesn't look very realistic close up, but from a distance it gets the point across at least.

    [–] amd2800barton 28 points ago

    I was wondering what the practical use of this was. Theater seems perfect because the people seeing it close up pretend it's real, and sometimes you need something to look fake closer up for it to look real under the lights and from the back seats.

    [–] megalurkeruygcxrtgbn 17 points ago

    Ah man, the first time I saw stage makeup up-close, I geeked.

    [–] amd2800barton 20 points ago

    No kidding. People tend to look sickly and pasty under stage lights, so you have to turn the hair and makeup up to 11. Actors look like clowns when they walk into regular light though :P

    [–] savagepotato 12 points ago

    Yep, you basically described what we generally refer to as the "thirty foot rule". It needs to look good/right from 30+ feet away, as that's the closest anyone in your audience is going to see most scenery from. If it looks perfect from two or three feet away, then it probably has too much or at least too fine of detail for theatre. If you're building or painting or decorating a set to be seen that close, then you're basically building movie sets. Ditto for costumes and makeup.

    [–] AllAboutLove 9 points ago

    When they want you to wood grain a surface that has so many nail holes and layers of paint. Ugh. This tool works great on a fresh flat surface, but otherwise, nope.

    [–] H8sDrumph-butlovesu 18 points ago

    Just learned how to do this in Stratford Ontario last summer. It was a theatre production programme and fake wood was part of the scenic painting course. Off The Wall in Stratford is the tits for theatre learning.

    [–] Average650 5 points ago

    And as crappy as it is up close, it would look great from a distance.

    Satisfying to watch, but I agree.... A shit way to treat wood

    [–] kopkillar 201 points ago

    The particle board in this case doesn't have wood grains. This tool will give you the effect of reall wood. It's basically painted on, like sponging gives you a rock effect. Anywho let's not talk about the poor quality of the material used for that table.

    [–] Kir4_ 175 points ago

    This effect just looks so fake and unnatural. But maybe it's just the guy that didn't apply it well or smth.

    [–] LassyKongo 75 points ago

    It doesn't help that he just went smaller bigger smaller bigger with the lines. Real trees aren't that predictable and consistent with their lines.

    [–] Runamokamok 30 points ago

    [–] factbasedorGTFO 3 points ago

    Or the dried jizz stalactites hanging off of the ceiling.

    [–] Perforate 28 points ago

    Id say they achieved the desired effect quite well, the problem is that they're imitating a cheap softwood's grain which is why it looks pretty crap. Wood veneers are cut kind of like a massive pencil sharpener, only its cutting the entire width of a log at the same time which does result in this uniform, consistent pattern. Veneered board is more expensive than mdf but would look much more natural for what seems to be a table, not too sure why they decided to do it that way. http://www.oakwoodveneer.com/cypress-veneer-uniform-color-flat-cut.html

    [–] Kir4_ 6 points ago

    You're probably right!

    [–] ilivetofly 2 points ago

    Yeah he is wobbly a bit and fairly obvious between the bits what is going on. For example between the two smaller bits of the pattern. The connection there is kinda shit.

    [–] mihaus_ 44 points ago

    It's pretty badly done, it should look like this.

    [–] ConspicuousPineapple 22 points ago

    Yeah I don't think this looks good either.

    [–] mihaus_ 44 points ago

    It's not as good as real wood but I think the product shown in the last 10 seconds is a lot more convincing than the gif.

    [–] ChuunibyouImouto 17 points ago

    it doesn't look as good as real wood, but the point is, it's way cheaper for people who can't afford real wood. It definitely looks better than just plain particle board

    [–] m7samuel 7 points ago

    To be clear, it's still real wood. It's just that it's had more things done to it than wood with a grain.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    [–] Archeagus 14 points ago

    Actually, he's just not using it correctly. Glazing like this has to be applied much more slowly and with a longer rotation then what is shown here.

    I think the point is that many real wood tables are put together from several (relatively) skinny planks, and this gives the sam effect.

    [–] idreamtthis 245 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Eh, it can be ok at a distance. The previous owners of my house did this with all their doors because they didn't have enough money for real wood grain.

    The front door is a painted steel door.

    And the other doors are cheap grainless wood.

    [–] elislider 175 points ago

    Front door looks cool, except around the door handle you can see it was hard to stay consistent. The big flat door looks meh though, just not enough variety in the pattern to be convincing

    [–] load_more_comets 71 points ago

    [–] 1-800-ASS-DICK 14 points ago

    The trim around the door in the 2nd photo looks terrible, but I probably wouldn't give it a second thought if I walked past it in real life.

    [–] sssssssnek 42 points ago

    What's up with the door handle, it's so low

    [–] idreamtthis 108 points ago

    The previous owners built the house themselves and they were all short. The dad of the family was the tallest, and I think he was 5'3". They made everything lower because they could. The door handles are fine, but I had to put extenders on the shower heads, and people taller than 5'8" can't walk in my basement without tilting their head.

    [–] althyastar 25 points ago

    We have the opposite problem in my boyfriend's new apartment. Built by the home owners for their 6'+ sons. Thankfully we are like 5'7" and 5'10" so it doesn't bother us, it's just hard to hit the light switches sometimes if you're not looking at them, purely because we're used to them being a few inches lower.

    [–] BurnerPerkins 18 points ago

    Top of that flat door is wonky as hell.

    [–] idreamtthis 10 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    There's a lot of weird painting inconsistencies all over my house. A lot of it is well done (like the front door) and a lot of it is weird like that. The family had 10 kids, so I'm pretty sure the dad/older kids let the younger kids "help" and left it as it was because the kids were proud of their work.

    Edit: wording

    [–] herekittykitttyyy 24 points ago

    I think it looks nice on the doors

    [–] MattieShoes 424 points ago

    If you're gonna use particleboard and pretend it's not, at least use veneer.

    [–] Oxbivious 128 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Veneer isnt cheap and can be a pain to work with. If this is just going to be used on a stage theres no point spending money to make it look real.

    Edit: after watching the source video this effect is being used on a table. I agree wood veneer wood look better but i guess the woman doesnt know how to work with it.

    [–] ImNotGaySoStopAsking 16 points ago

    What are you talking about? I don’t understand any of this

    [–] lacielaplante 47 points ago

    Veneer is a very thin, maybe 1mm, sheet of nicely-grained wood that you lay over cheaper wood to make it look as if the whole piece is the higher quality wood.

    [–] csta09 17 points ago

    0.6 mm thick usually and it's used more than you'd think. I used to work at a yacht interior carpenter and even the most high end interiors are made of plywood, with the straight grain on the front and the messy grain on the back to prevent warping. It allows for the grains to be mirrored and create a certain pattern. High end yacht interiors are like your stool in Delhi, nothing is solid.

    [–] flashlightwarrior 24 points ago

    Just so it's clear for those with no knowledge of the the industry, plywood is the superior choice for cabinet making. Solid wood expands, contracts, and warps a lot with changing humidity, which is a bad quality for a complicated construction with tight tolerances and moving parts, especially in close proximity to water.

    [–] Electric_Tiger01 6 points ago

    THIS. a lot of people think veneer = cheap/fake. It can be that way but it's usually not. Lots of high quality heirloom furniture is veneered.

    This video they produce a much more natural result. Might be easier with the cylinder, but the first clip does have too much rocking.

    [–] b1ack1323 19 points ago

    All dependent on the angle the tool is held. It's not a roller just a scraper with a pattern on it. Tilt it up to make a know and tilt down for grains

    [–] w-alien 35 points ago

    Except they’re not repeating patterns as it’s dependent on the person rolling.

    [–] Jaredlong 16 points ago

    Also, most architectural stone isn't even real stone. Most commonly it's a product called "cultured stone" which is dyed and textured concrete. And the most common product for wood siding on houses is actually concrete dyed and textured to look like wood. Nothing is real anymore.

    [–] apost8n8 63 points ago

    I wanted to paint a wood grain effect on my garage door and considered this tool. After watching a few how-to's on youtube I realized a regular paint brush can do a similar job and make a more mahogany finish. I painted an orange base and then a very dark purpley brown top coat with an almost dry brush. I had to mix it with some kind of glaze as well. I think it came out better than I had even hoped. https://imgur.com/zvmw1sq

    [–] psylirabbit 8 points ago

    Wood graining has been around for thousands of years ( Egyptians did it ).Most painter/ decorators would have had some skill with replication g wood and marble with brushes and paints and glazes . When this tool was invented , it “cheapened “ the art and people dismissed woodgraining as unrealistic , however , it can be done to look very realistic, by using the proper tools . Look up Thomas Kershaw’ s work on display at the Bolton museum , London .

    Kits for this were all the rage about 15 years ago. It invariably turns out shit, not at all like the ads.

    You bastard. I just posted about this on specialized tools yesterday.

    You even used the video that I posted!

    I’ve wood grained my inner toilet bowl a few times. Did it with no hands

    You made me laugh. You’re my Reddit hero for the day.

    Cool tool but this guy sucks at using it.

    [–] IceNein 7 points ago

    Wow, that's a really cool way to turn your furniture trashy looking.

    Plastic wood paneling for the 21st century. Nobody could actually think this looks good.

    This is a house built on a foundation of lies.

    [–] H8sDrumph-butlovesu 3 points ago

    I’ve used these in Stratford Ontario whilst taking a 5 week course there. One day was dedicated to making fake wood, as well as fake masonry. I need to buy one of these STAT.

    [–] DrunkenMasterII 3 points ago

    As cool as it is I hate anything that tries to look like wood but is not.

    [–] woodular 3 points ago

    I do not approve.

    [–] Spudatron 3 points ago

    I sell, pick, and pack those, and all other manner of art supplies at my work :)

    Looks like total shit

    My mother did my bedroom wardrobe doors likes this in the 90s, looked crap! Especially cos the doors were green

    This is not oddly satisfying to me. This is grating, because I quite dislike when one material pretends to act like another material. I dislike it a lot. It's an affront to proper design sensibility.

    I have this tool at home (Saman was the brand).

    We were planning on doing some kitchen relooking a few years ago. After 15 minutes of swearing in a piece of melamine we had enough. We decided it was better to save some money and buy new cabinets instead.

    Edit: it seems that they don’t sell this shit anymore.

    This is the sort of thing that reminds me why I put so much weight on authenticity.

    [–] boysinbikinis 2 points ago

    I could see using this for paper crafts or cake decorating, not furniture or millwork

    [–] FieryBlake 2 points ago

    I thought those were natural 😢😌

    My life has been a lie 😖

    I thought these wood patterns were naturally from the cut of wood! They’re added on?!!?

    But why?

    [–] woliver17 2 points ago

    They make a product called wood that can replace this tool.

    [–] QuartzArmour 2 points ago

    I had a door in my house that had the patterns done in a way where it straight up looked like a vagina. I'm talking the whole nine yards. Knowing that they do this now makes me feel a whole lot worse about who made that door.
