We are building a home with 3 decorative milled turned logs in the interior. They are standing up on knife blades and not attached to anything else. We want to enjoy the look and smell of them for years to come. How should we best finish them? I have read that the Osborne brush would improve the rough finish? Is there anything to prevent the logs from turning color yet still let the scent through?


The Osborn will improve the finish, but there is nothing that will prevent them from turning dark and the smell will go away as the log dries.
