You didn't hear this from me...haha.There are times that we need a rough/er sawn look on pcs that are for whatever reason....not.Meaning,even our "rough" stock is too slick.
First,we decide if we want the round blade look(that's in your pic)....with the roughness going at an angle.Or do we want a "pit saw" look,where the lines are at a 90* to the edge(both of which are/can be time periods).Next we take a chainsaw and shim it,for lack of better description?,.....so that:We are laying the bar down flat on wood surface,depending on shim's thickness and that particular chain....determines the amt of "texturing".Pull trigger and take off,skimming the surface.When done well,it'll fool historic architects/engineer types.Like I said,you didn't hear it from me.
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
