Simulation of Natural Wear & Patina on Antique furniture

A set of custom distressing tools made by Cal Regan to simulate natural wear and patina on wood surfaces.

When contact is carefully applied to surfaces this produces random small dents and scuffs and accidents that naturally occur over the life of the furniture.

Following many decades of use, the natural wear and patina can be clearly seen on this antique chisel handle.
