Rustic Wood Counter

Hey friends! We spent last week in Vancouver and can I just tell you, that city is gorgeous in the spring time! Have you been? We walked their Marine Walk and took a boat trip thru their harbor, saw the art museum, Fort Langley and did an architectural walking tour. the city was lovely and clean. But perhaps the highlight for this sweet tooth, Zack and I split the YUMMIEST desert, called "sugar pie." 

I seriously considered ordering another, but was too full! The northwest is finally warming up, guys! I am one happy camper. We live so much of our lives outside, traveling around the US like this, so the warm weather gives us our playground back. Back to projects! Yay! We launched a new wood stain color a while back, but I finally have some photos to share! This stain is Restoration and it will turn most wood types a warm, rustic brown.



1] SAND: To achieve this look, start with a raw wood surface.
The wood must be sanded, you can have it sent through a large sanding machine at the mill or you can sand it really well with a hand sander. You should start with 80 grit and then 120 grit. (You can do a finish sand at the end, at 220 or above.)

2] STAIN: Applying the Restoration stain is like a piece of cake, read "even easier than typical stains." 
Using a large brush and drench the wood with stain. (See above video, also shown on oak.) Let the wood air dry for 60 minutes.

3] DARKEN: Applying the Weatherwood Clear Maintenance Oil application is just like your typical wood stain application. You brush or wipe it onto wood, allow 5-10 minutes for it to penetrate, then wipe of excess.
Allow to cure 48 hours.

4.] SEAL: If your project is on a high traffic or water area, you will want to let the OIL cure, then seal overtop with Weatherwood Varnish.

Where have you been lately and how's that Spring weather?
