Outdoor Finish - Penofin


2 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

This will be my thread to track how the finish I chose holds up over time. I chose to use Penofin, which is a penetrating oil finish. They have many different types, and I used their Hardwood Formula. My chairs are made of White Oak. This oil does have a slight tone to it. It gave the wood a nice golden color that we ended up really liking. I applied a heavy coat of finish and let is soak in, for about 10 minutes. I then wiped off the excess and let it dry. Just one coat, as the instructions said. I plan to reapply the oil each year. I also live near Seattle Wa, so we do get some rain and snow here. I do plan to leave my chairs out year round, but I did pick up some covers for them.

Mike,

Would you post a picture after the finish has been applied. After reading you post thought I would also try it also but just tonight learned about General Finishes' 'Outdoor Oil' so maybe will go with that unless some one here has had a bad experience with it. If I do I will post a picture and a followup in the spring and the end of next summer. My chair will be outside but on a deck that is protected from the rain and has a dense tree canopy that will greatly reduce the sun exposure.

      I'm not sure what the white up arrow on a green background is. When you click it a white down arrow on a red background appears. Is that the like button? If not I've not found a like button yet. Also the signature facility on the bottom of posts has disappeared too.

      Does anyone know what screen size this is designed for? I have to scroll over to get to the new content button on some pages.

      The problem with a lot of these guys throwing armor kits on them is that the 1114 class hmmwv's were never made to hold that much weight. An armor kit adds about 5,000 lb to the truck. The suspensions on them just can't handle it.  I'm still trying to talk myself out of buying one for a trail/ hunting truck.
    • When to call a yard on defect boards
      By Brendon_t · Posted
      I would go into the grading chart and take a copy out to the shop. Inspect the boards you received and measure the good cuts and ensure that the boards you recd are actually up to the grade you paid for.  If you went lower on the quality/rating to lower the price, and you recd boards that measure out to the standards set in grading, then I don't think you have a leg to stand on. if you paid for one grade but 20% of your order isn't up to that grade! dang right I'd be calling them and asking them when they would be bringing the correct lumber and picking up the crap they sent you in its place.
