Hey everyone, I am trying to put my ducks in a row and think a few steps ahead with my bat house project. Here is a link to a blog I put up describing it more in detail AHS Razorbats
This is going to be a project that I want to look nice for as long as possible so I am needing something to help protect the cedar I am using to construct it. This will be eventually hung somewhere on my daughters school campus outdoors so it will need to hold up to the environment. This is my first endeavor dealing with cedar and have no idea what to use to protect it. I know nothing will last for ever, but my daughter (whom I am making it for) will be there a couple more years and I want it to hold up nicely for at least that long….lol
One thing I should mention is part of it will be painted. Well, the AHS and Razorbats will be at least. I am going to leave the rest natural finish.
Thanks for any insight on this.
