Question:


I'm going to be working with green beams. After I've finished my project, which will be inside my home, will applying a natural oil to the wood over time prevent checking and cracking? I'm thinking about tung oil right now, but I'm looking at other oils as well. I'm thinking several applications each year as it air dries. Will this work?

Answer:

It may. It hard to say for sure since the humidity in the house will play a big part in how fast they dry. What ever you put on them should be what you want in the end. I would let them dry as much as possible before you seal them or you could end up with mold.
