Don’t be intimidated by all of the wood finish options out there! This video goes through all of the options with pros and cons for each. Are you going for durability? Honestly, paint is your best option. As Steve points out in the video below, there’s a reason we paint our houses – it lasts a long time and protects from the elements! Of course, the biggest drawback is that the wood gets covered up. See what some of the other options are and how to apply them!
We learn how to prep the wood with sanding and how to prep the brush with mineral oils. Go ahead and see the other tips and tricks from Steve at Woodworking for Mere Mortals. We just love his videos and his sense of humor here at Crafty House. Check out a few of his other videos here!
