We have been in our log home for 10 years and I’m happy to say have had no problems structurally or otherwise. When we built, I chose to leave the interior logs (8” milled pine) natural and put a coat of oil on them. I am now thinking about possibly putting a coat of varathane (what is the difference between varathane & urethane) to enhance the grain as well as make dusting the logs easier. Is this something you would recommend? Can I harm my logs by applying the varathane?


You should call Timeless Wood Care at 800-564-2987 and get their advice, but I would say no ”thane’s” on the logs. Perma Chink makes a great interior stain and clear coat that will give you the same looka nd is better for the wood.
