I have recently peeled and stacked ponderosa pines logs into cabin walls. The logs were dried for 6 months prior to peeling, and now have dried another month stacked. I would like to apply a stain/sealer before wet snow falls. A major consumer publication lists Olympic Prem. Latex stain as the longest lasting in their test. I have applied satin Spar Varnish to interior logs before and would like this appearance for the EXTERIOR logs what do you recommend…oil or water stains/sealers.
