From Scientific American's February 12, 1859 issue: "Joel Cowee, of Keene, N.H., has invented and patented a new and efficient method of producing a variegated appearance on the surface of wood, by making indentations or depressions in it in a direction running crossways to the fibres of the wood, by means of a fluted and plain rollers, the plain roller being arranged in a pendulous weighted lever, whereby those parts of the timber which have been depressed by the projections of the fluted roller receive a different degree of compactness from those parts falling between the projections, so that the surface, when planed smooth, will have a variegated appearance."
