Is it a bad idea to stain over chinking between logs? The job would be so much easier w/spray rather than hand staining each log to avoiding getting stain on chinking.


It would be fine to spray on top of the chink. It is done all the time. Some people prefer the look. If you try to hand brush it all and a drip runs on the chink you will never get it wiped out completly. Spray away!
