we are building an Honest Abe log cabin and getting close to selecting a stain color.
i would like the logs to look as ‘old’ and authentic as possible. any suggestions on stain colors? should i use semi-transparent. i would simply like to let the pine logs age naturally, but have been told ‘many times’ that i can not do this because of moisture .
logs have been treated for insects and i would just like to leave them for a couple of years and let that nice weathered grey color happen. then, clear coat. what do you guys think? please reply. .
