Adding Texture to Wood Photos by Mark Salusbury; Lead photo by Rob Brown I think wood must be the most adaptable of all the materials we have at our disposal.Depending on how we work it, any given piece of wood can be made massively rigid or quite flexible, thinned right down to translucency if that's our desire.

For example, we can describe it as being smooth or rough, sharp or rounded, waxy, oily, glassy or pebbled, leathery or gritty.Logically, texture is most identified with the sense of touch.But before we touch the object, most often we see it first and it is that interaction that either attracts us or repels us from touching the object.
What does texture add to our woodwork?Texture produces the surface features of reflection, refraction or absorption of light and the colours within the visible spectrum which are the properties of the species of wood we're working with.
