Driftwood Look on Maple, Live Edge

Everyone looks that weathered wood look and live edge furniture is all the rage, why not combine the two? I've seen tons of live edge tables with a natural, oiled finish. But very few look like this! Weatherwood stains are a great choice for live edge because you can still see the wood grain, but the wood is not gray! You'll love how easy it was to do!


1.] SAND : Presand wood with 80 grit, if you want a finer sand you can sand up to 120 without worrying about closing up the grain again.

2.] STAIN: I used Weatherwood Reclamation stain to naturally weather the slab. Just brush on the stain and let it air dry. The wood changes color as it dries. 

If you slab isn't maple, that's fine. Just find your wood species on the Weatherwood Color Chart and see what weathered colors it could turn.

3.] SEAL: Use Weatherwood Varnish to seal over Weatherwood stains. Brush or spray on 2-3 coats for superior protection.

Did you have any questions? This whole project was completed in just one day. Isn't that awesome? Who doesn't want to get onto their next project faster?
