Defuzzing of logs is a choice available to the homeowners in order to have their logs look the way they desire. There are four sanding methods that can be performed depending on the desired appearance. The four methods that we use are sanding, grinding, osbourn brushes, and defelting.
Sanding is done using a dual action (DA) sander to smooth out raised grain or for detailing the logs to a smooth furniture-like feel.
Grinding is done using a right angle grinder and is used for log ends to close up the grain to prevent the logs from wicking water and also for detailing to give the logs a finished look.
Osbourn brushes are used to remove fuzz from power washing or blasting if the logs happen to fuzz up from the stripping process.
Defuzzing is done using a right angle grinder with a non-woven pad and is also used for removing fuzz from the log surfaces.
