I have to finish my log home. I have had if for two years. It was built in 2002. The previous owners could not remember what was used as the initial finish. They said two years ago they used the Cabot Australian Timber Oil. With looking into things I have narrowed it down to Sashco Transformation Stain Log & Timber or Lovitt’s Natural Gold Stain.
