I'm making a Walnut framed mirror for the Navy Ball this year, and I wanted a more rustic, "patina" look to it. At work (I work for a high end window and door company), we offer wire brushed Fir. I tried the wire brush attachments for my hand drill, and then tried the one on my bench grinder, but they either took far too long, or were too hard to control in relation to the wood. That's when I put the wire wheel on my table saw. Worked so well, I wished I had tried it a month ago! The surface looks perfect for the look I was after....
