We purchased an 8 ft round cedar post for the inside of our house. It's red cedar cut from the middle of the log. Looks great with beautiful knots...but it's rough. Should it be sanded? If so with what grit? Does it need to have any sort of finished applied before installing?


I would recommend Osborne brushing it to get it smoother, but not loose the character of the log. You should apply a coat of Perma Chink Prelude then a coat of Acrylic gloss or satin. You can get the materials you need at 800-564-2987.
