Finish question

I built a table for my BGE this weekend out of treated pine. I will keep and use it under the porch roof of my outbuilding. I'd like to put a dark wood stain and polyurethane finish on the table. Any info and/or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I did the exact same and was going to let my treated pine sit a while before I stained it. I was allowing the wood to "dry", but most say treated wood does not dry. Anyway, I was going to wait a few months, but I am not sure it matters

    What specific info are you looking for?

    I used minwax stain, and spar urethane(satin) on my table..
  • the treatment will leach out over time if the wood is not finished.

    need to let it dry on the surface, then finish.

    over time, unfinished treated pine becomes nothing more than unfinished pine, which is really not suitable for exterior use.

    You may want to use a pre conditioner for pine. It will help even out the color for soft woods.
