Have and 1815 hand hewn wormy chestnut log home. The exterior has been covered with siding so those logs are protected from the elements. We cleaned all the white wash from the interior logs and now would like to coat them with something that will reduce the "roughness" of the surface. In other words, when I run a towel across the log it will pull lint and strings off the towel. What do you suggest?


I would recommend sanding them so that they are smooth and applying a coat of clear Life Line interior stain and a coat of Acrylic Gloss or Satin topcoat. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 to purchase.
