finishing cabin ceiling...ideas?
« on: May 16, 2023, 11:05:37 PM »
I just received my spruce boards that I will be using for my cabin ceiling/roof. I would like to finish them before applying to the rafters

They have circular saw grooves on the ceiling side, that I would like to accent. I was thinking of some sort of glaze that I could use to highlight the grooves. Make the grooves darker. maybe clearing the wood first then applying a glaze and wiping off then tops leaving the darker glaze in the crevices?

I was also thinking of a stain and then lightly sanding the high spots, but I'm afraid the stain will penetrate too deep and I wont get the effect I'm looking for.

Has anyone done something like this?

Or do I just clear it and let the shadows do the work?

anyone tried a torch to accent the grooves?

Thanks in advance.
