                    Wood grained metal frames. Old Atlanta City Hall.          

    Wood graining is the art of making surfaces look like wood. This sometimes means graining cheaper more common woods to look like rarer woods or as in the photo on the left to make metal look like wood.

      Tools for graining are varied. Some typical tools are combs, feathers, rags, leather,  check rollers, and special brushes such as blenders, liners, and floggers. Blenders and floggers are usually made from Badger hair. Graining  skillfully executed  can turn white pine into any wood from mahogany to  ebony.
