Quote from: GRadice on October 25, 2023, 11:41:54 PMThree questions first: Are you thinking about exterior or interior or both? Will it be rough sawn or planed/sanded smooth?What species of wood?
Quote from: Ianab on October 26, 2023, 12:37:45 AMNon-curing oil finishes generally need to be re-applied periodically. Maybe after a few decades the wood gets so polished and "cured" that it keeps it's finish, but outdoor furniture and cutting boards that you might finish with mineral oil generally need maintenance re-applications. I suspect that after a few years it will start looking a bit tired?Any finish is going to change the colour of the wood, just look at before and after on your cutting boards. Wood also changes colour with age / UV light etc over time. Some of the better quality finishes are UV resistant, so they change less over time.
Quote from: Sod saw on October 27, 2023, 07:36:42 AMIn a recent post (and I am asking here because I don't remember where that other post is) you also talked about some finish that you used to lighten up some wood.Do I remember that the other wood was flooring?I am also installing Pine and Hemlock 2 x 6 tongue and groove ceiling in our shop and would like it to not turn dark. Will you (have you) put the finish on before installing the boards or after the ceiling is in place?
