Distressing is the by-hand artisan process that adds character, nuance and depth to the finish of new wood furniture. Chaddock’s distressing process enhances the unique and intrinsic characteristics of individual wood species, teasing out wood’s natural beauty and preparing it for our multi-step finishing process. Pick, chain loop, chisel and rock, Chaddock artisans use a variety of tools to achieve just the right look. Your look!
In all, Chaddock offers five levels of distress. We call the first “no distress.” That said, it’s not pristine or perfect. Wood is a natural product, after all! Light wisps or cow tailing, marks and graining will be present – and appreciated!
