I've just finished building a 4'x12' picnic table of 2x8, 10 & 12" PT (ACQ)
lumber. I would like to stain it, but it's still quite damp with the
chemicals. How long should I wait before applying stain?
Do you like eating food off of chemical laden wood? Just something to think
about when food comes in direct contact with it.
As for the stain, I'd wait a couple of months at best. Perhaps it will give
some protection from the chemicals in the wood.
