7 months later. The log ends have that dirty dry look, the log stain wasn't applied properly. The weather is taking it's toll on this log building now.
This is how we apply stain or paint to wood. We use a combination of airless and HVLP sprayers. The idea is to soak, saturate the wood with stain, paint or clear coat until the product is full. We do this in 3 stages around the log building
Professional Wood Staining & Finishing
Here is an before and after example of a Douglas Fir log shop using Timber Pro Coatings.
Look how great this finish looks! This is a 3 coat process. Each coat is flooded on, soaking as much stain as I can get into the logs. I spray stain until its saturated, then brush it out until there are no drips or sagging. I do this three times over the course of a few days.
