So here I was thinking “OK I’m in the home stretch. I’m finished sanding the posts and they’re ready for my oil/stain mix.” Ha!
I started to apply the oil mix and couldn’t believe that the DF of the posts were taking on the oil mix in a very different way than the rafters and rafter supports. Heck they now looked like PTL :( So before they completely dry, I’m now applying a stain by hand that is getting me where I want to be. I’ll then just used pure BLO as a few finish coats.
Man just when you think you’re heading home, you get a screwball thrown at you and have to make adjustments – oh and do more work :O
I guess I’ll have to hit up all of the components with my stain mix – Red Mahogany and English Chestnut – to get a uniform appearance.
