FIRST, I did a search on this topic and many of the threads are a couple years old. Although there is some good information, No new information is out there. Thus this re-hashed question but now with the added twist of being in southern California with the limited choices of finish.
I have been commissioned to refinish a couple of douglas fir french doors. The doors are exposed to at least morning to midday sun, rain (when we get some) and the normal outdoor weather we get here in Southern California.
The plan is to strip the existing finish and try to sand the doors to get rid of the greying wood areas. Gonna be tough on the slats between the windows. If I cannot get rid of the greying, the owners will have me paint them.
SO, now the question is, what kind of clear finish can I use that I can PURCHASE IN THE LOS ANGELES/ORANGE COUNTY area.
Since I have not started the doors yet, I have some time to make sure I have the information and can get a good finish that will last several years. So any suggestions on makes or where may be a good place to purchase these finishes would be greatly appreciated.
