"Hello Greg, I never got the $2860 you refer to. If I had received that (which is what I requested in my letters), this would have been resolved long ago. I suggest you check your records on that check. As far as the 6 pails of S100, that was a…"

"120 grit does make a smoother finish, however, it can also create a mill glaze which would require washing off. Acrylic/Poly/Acrylic... it depends on the manufacturer. If you were using all our products I would say you could put either one over the…"

"If there is any poly left, and you try to stain over it, it will not coat evenly. That would be due to the fact that some of the pores would already be sealed and unable to accept the stain the same color. Prelude is our clear primer/sealer. Many…"

"A light scrubbing with a nylon brush will help in your bad areas. And, mixing the stronger solution was the right thing to do since you're preparing the surfact for application of a finish. If those black dots are UNDER the poly, nothing will…"

"I know, this has been a difficult one. I feel like I'm telling you the same thing over and over... Are you lost yet? Log Wash would be mixed and sprayed on with a pump up garden sprayer, then you can rinse it off with a sponge."

"An Oxolic acid solution is what you would use. It doesn't actually "remove" the stain, it just brightens it to the point where you don't see the discolorations as badly. If they don't go too deep, it will actually make them…"

"There is not a fungus I know of that would cause yellowing. It may just be that there was something in the soil where those trees were growing that gave those logs more of a yellow color. You can try the log wash and see if it help... my offer still…"

"If the mold is UNDER the finish it won't help at all. Oxolic acid does not kill mold, it does not clean, it only brightens."

"Picture #78 - I can still see "blotchiness" on the bare wood. Especially the top one. If you apply the poly to this, your finish will be blotchy. What Log Wash does is clean.... And, it will brighten a little. Actually, looking at the…"

"The steps look to me like some of the wood was sanded smoother than the rest. That is where the blotchiness comes in. Where it is "yellow", the wood has accepted more of the poly. The lighter spots look to me like you had a little mill…"

I'm fine Merry Anne. I'm just in the process of stripping and refinishing the house. Kind of busy. My next "Cheap and Easy" tips will be "DIY stone foyer" and "How to put a stone veneer on a cinder block foundation"

Thanks,

DT

Merry Anne, in the past 15 years in thousands of wood lodges have been built in England, most are located in holiday parks and, apart from me, no-one knows how to look after them. I started preserving cedar and redwood homes around San Francisco in 1989, I really am the best. I use pressure washers, oxalic acid, bi-carb, airless & HVLP sprayers, and blasting equipment. I am taking a course in soda blasting in a couple of days, I cant wait.

I sent twenty emails, made four phone calls, and already I've got 400 wood lodges to strip and re-stain.

D'ya fancy working in England this winter, ha ha. James
