I have a piece of an old stump that I not only want to preserve but also “embellish” for a friend to hang on her new “privacy” fence.
Weathered wood and “old stuff” is a big thing here!
What I am asking all of you is for ideas, comments etc on the preservation aspect.
I have used and like to a degree is a Minwax product# that is a single part wood “hardener”
Is there anything else out there that is a clear, moisture resistant, (outdoor finish)?
I have used SeaFin on “new” wood as a sealer/finish, but I am not really sure what I should use!
I intend to rout some letters etc into the surface as a thank you for a couple of cool neighbors and want to assure that this gift will not rot or ruin the new fence I built for them. ( they really overpaid as well as paying a bonus for finishing the fence earlier than expected!)
I will eventually also build a “fence” around the propane tank to hide it and intend to add “frames” or “shadow boxes and shelves for plants to “disguise” the tank as well as tie it into the the fence.
