We have an 1860 log home that we are restoring. We are cornblasting it this weekend on the interior. Would like to seal or finish the interior logs with some natural substance. Perhaps linseed or tung oil. But am worried that maybe the permachink won't adhere. Any advice on natural interior finishes?


First, I would recommend sanding the surface down fairly smooth on the interior after blasting, and before staining. It will help a ton when it comes time to dust the logs in the future. Stick with a good latex interior stain made for log homes. My choice is Life Line. Call Timeless Wood Care at 800-564-2987 for help.
