cedar wood finishing

Same way I finished the ceilings to to baths and showers 30 years ago. Nail em up. No finish, no refinish, no peeling, flaking, getting dull, whatever. Red cedar will last forever! Ron

cedar wood finishing

If you want to finish it, latex clear coats such as BM Stays Clear or Minwax Pollycrilic are the easiest to apply and will maintain the original color longest. Latex clears don't yellow over time like oil base does, although the wood will still darken some over the years.

cedar wood finishing

Cedar wood is the best material in the world for wood products with carvings, it has a pleasant aroma and antiseptic properties. Red cedar wood is resistant to decay and little affected by the wormhole.It would be good to cover it with quick-drying gloss varnish. It is important that the varnish has beneficial effects on human health and can prevent the flu and other colds.
