The cellulose and non-cellulose parts of the wood absorb the paint differently, thus making the wood grain pronounced, but not textured.Bill "the Doctor" Rudloff

Quote from: geminitimelord on Apr 13, 2010, 01:15 pmGreat Find Bill! Wow that makes sense. I was almost positive it was some form of coloured stain. They also must have used some high quality lumber to get that grain. I wonder if they used OAK? Either way this was a precision build as there seems to be no evidence of any wood putty being used. The joins are all PERFECT.

Quote from: philipw on Jun 02, 2010, 07:30 pmI have a lot of woodworking experience and I'd say this has the open grain structure found in common white oak, both when the grain is shown rift and flat sawn in the build.
