I realize that this might not be the appropriate forum for this
question, but I figured you guys would have an answer.
Part of the construction of our new lake home includes a small rustic
porch. We've elected to use stripped cedar logs for the support posts.
My question is this: besides a water-sealer(a.k.a. Thompson's), is there
any kind of finish that would help preserve the natural color of the logs?
I realize that I may have to be content with the inevitable silver
patina, but we'd prefer the white wood look. Any suggestions?
