    I know nothing about working with wood. I was looking for the best option for an unfinished pine wood piece that I was to use outdoor. This gave the basics. Clear, easy to understand and simple. Thank you!

    I wish you could show us what the side of that swing looks like as I'd like to see how you designed the cup holder section.

    i used a water based semi transparent outdoor stain for some outdoor furniture i made, it dried rather flat, i would like to give it some sort of glossy wet look, is there anything i can use over the stain?

    Excellent video friend! I am curious to know, what would be your choice for a large 20×40 deck? Partial sun/shade…. I have been looking everywhere and have not found any product I seem to like or one that seems like it would protect the wood well enough.

    You don’t put paint / primer all in one on raw wood. You must prime it first. Call Valspar and ask technical support.

    Have an old 1950's Paul Frankl style rattan couch and chairs that have been sanded and cleaned of old finish. What do you suggest for the finish coat? Am considering Watco oil rather than varnish. This is an indoor set. Would varnish be a better choice, or will the danish oil give a nice finish that will dry well so that cushions won't be damaged by any oil? Thank you

    Wrong about the paint/primer thing. If you read the label it tells you it's only paint/primer on existing paint. On bare wood the label will still typically tell you to prime the wood first. That's because paint/primer doesn't have primer in it at all, it's just regular paint that is "high hiding." But actual primer does more than just cover what's underneath.

    Thank you for this review, quite helpful.
    I think you need to do the deck now as it looks like it needs freshening up. I would love to see the "After" photos. Thanks πŸ™‚

    I have a project made of plywood and the appearance is not important to me. I used Boiled Linseed Oil to preserve wood from the elements. Do you have any opinion of using linseed oil to prevent rain from warping plywood?. Its a box to hold earthworms used to make garden compost.

    Oh, I also have questions about that swing. The stock I have in that type of wood is shorter. Would it be practical to add more braces or supports to accommodate the length of the wood I have? I really would like to use my Mahogany it's so beautiful I would just have to alter each pattern.

    Great video thanks! I do have a question though. Would it be better to stain seal your project before you assemble it? That way your ahead of the game for a couple of years right?

    Interesting, thanks. For outdoor furniture how fine a grit do you sand to before applying the stain?

    It would hurt to catch your foot on that sprung board.

    Upon inspection of the wood in the stain section, it became apparent, that you used a blue tape on your wood to separate the different paint and stains. I suggest "Frog Tape" to straighten out the lines and make the results more professional. Frog tape is water proof, which will stop the seepage. I surely would go a long ways to present a professional example.

    Good tips, Chris. I will be experimenting with spraying on General Finishes Exterior 450, a water based outdoor finish. I've used spar varnishes in the past but they are a pain to apply.
