  1. Thank you all for your input. I think I am going to lean towards what the log homes are finished with as log homes are pine here in the upper midwest, beings pine is what I am using. Along with a bug insecticide and mold buster additive. Log Homes if maintained last quite a few years. I will probably use a log home caulk to fill in the cracks too as this will stretch and compact as the pine timber expands and contracts.
  2. Thank you for the advice wtnhighlander. I did try the boiled linseed oil on a scrap piece and you are right it did really yellow it and with multiple coats I believe it would even be more yellow. I will go with your advice on a good clear deck sealer. Thanks again!
  3. Thank you all for your input! The customer is pretty set on using the live edge beetle pine. Basically it is a pine tree from the Black Hills National Forest that bark beetles killed and it left blue streaks throughout the slabs, there is no beetle holes. It will take 3 slabs about 7 feet long for the sign. I am going to CNC the wordage and logo. Another person recommended using boiled linseed oil. She said thats what they use on tree trunks that were carved with a chainsaw and the roots are still in the ground. carvings such as owls, eagles etc. Has anyone had experience wit
  4. I have a customer who wants me to do a large outdoor sign with live edge pine. The customer wants low maintenance on it. Normally I use Hellsman Spar Urethane for outdoor signs. Is there an epoxy I could use that doesnt need to be maintained every year.
