  • Translucent Finish vs. Mother Nature

  • Mill Glaze

    Mill Glaze is a phenomenon that occurs during the milling process of the wood. Wood generally has an open porous cell structure that is very accepting of wood finishes. This porous structure is altered during the planing process that makes the wood glossy smooth or mill glazed.

    Blades on these planners rotate at very high speeds and crush the open cell structure, which transforms it into a closed structure that prevents the penetration of any coating. To achieve maximum bond of our coatings to the wood we recommend that the “mill glaze” be removed by sanding or applying TSP, bleach and water solution and then lightly power washing the surface.
