Hello Doc, I know women who owns a log lodge. She insists on treating the logs with linseed oil. I have suggested a professional oil based penetrater with uv inhibitors and the other usual protectors. What do you think?
I recommend staying away from all oils. Latex log home stain is the best way to go. Most log home products today are acrylic latex based and bond well together. Some oil products can cause blackening of the wood, like linseed oil.
