I've toyed with the idea of putting marine spar varnish on Cecilia's wood when I get it in, but like all coatings that show the grain it doesn't last well.

One place did a test and found that since our trucks had black painted wood to begin with, a coating of Por 15 and a topcoat of black outdoor paint was the absolute best, longest lasting thing you could do.

I just don't see why they can't make a see-through varnish that holds up and still shows the wood grain. It's 2018 after all. We can preserve blueberries for 25 years or more and keep them edible. We should be able to preserve wood for at least that long!

Some people are like slinkys. Not worth much but funny as heck when pushed down stairs.
