Will treated lumber accept and hold a redwood stain or is the
treatment something that rejects such? I'm toying with the idea of
using it for a small yard shelter (can't remember the proper name
for such) and want it to match my redwood stained cedar fence.
Yes... but paint and stain work better if you let the wood dry out first.
Unfortunately the wood usually warps as it dries. Try to get the driest PT
wood that you can when you purchase. Most of the PT wood I see is still
very wet from the process.
It will if it is dry. One problem with PT wood is that it is
saturated with the nasty liquid preservatives. I have used it but I
hate it. I'd use cypress, cedar, redwood, or white oak, even at 3X
