The quality of machined wood surfaces is a primary and important physical and aesthetical characteristic of any wood product. There term “quality” is a complex and sophisticated notion and the overall quality of a wood surface may be influenced by an array of physical, mechanical and aesthetical properties. Among the physical properties, the surface geometry and the surface roughness, play an important role in directly influencing a lot of other properties. The same concerns the photodegradation and stability of surfaces, which also directly affect many important properties. The Overview gives a brief description of the subject with outlooks and future possibilities.
