Band sawn finish
A band sawn finish is created by putting a dressed product through a bandsaw to give it a rustic appearance and improved grip for decks. There are many factors that can have an impact on the overall appearance of a band sawn product, most of which cannot be avoided.
The inconsistencies you can expect to see in a band sawn finish include but are not limited to:
- Different depth gouges
- Difference in length between gouges
- Dressed surface may be visible in areas
- Some black smudges
- Difference thickness along some boards
This product is designed to have a “cleaner” look than the mill sawn product and will give better colour consistency as the “weathered face” is cleaned up (re-sawn). However, the appearance is quite rustic with inconsistencies in the sawn finish.
