We have cedar wood walls on the inside of our basement. House built in 1979 - have never had trouble with them drying out, but now have many, many patches that are totally dry. We have applied oil to it consistently over the years and am not sure why this is happening now. Just a week after we oil them, the patches show up again. Any ideas?


I guess I'm confused since you want wood to stay dry. Is it a drying oil or does it always stay sticking? You may have to sand to tight the grain up and then stain.
