I have a friend who has an antique cypress wood beam from a structure that belonged to his family. The beam was left out in the rain recently and I'd like to help him find out if 1. The water is harmful to a piece of wood like that and 2. If so, what the process would entail to restore and protect the integrity of the piece from further damage. I don't think the plan for the piece is to be functional but more of a historical memento for display. Any information would help, thank you!


Get it out of the weather, sand it and apply a nice finish.
