We are building all orders at as they arrive-no backlog.
First off, White Cedar does not need to be finished to last longer or preserve the wood. Cedar will turn soft grey if no finish is applied.
New for 2023- Ready Seal 512 received a customer review rating of 4.6 of 5 so we're committed to offer this finish to customers this year. We chose Natural Cedar to accentuate the beauty of native Maine White Cedar. It's recommended to reapply every 2 years.
We have learned the hard way not to use any finish made with either Tung oil or Linseed oil. Both will turn black in a short amount of time. So many brands that I could name!
Use white shellac on the knots then apply a high quality primer and you're ready for your final color. Painted chairs look great, but you know the drill with paint. 4-7 years out and you'll need to scrape, prime and resurface.
