What is a good preserveant for Northern White pine?I have tried cwf and have had mixed results.I want to be careful of the coloring,want it to stay a slightly darker original color.Some things I have saw others use turns the wood pinkish/orange which I want to stay away from.

Check out Permachink, they sell a borate salt preservative. Linseed oil will help, but doesn't give protection against fungus, bugs and such. It's what I used on my log home.


Sashco also has a good line of products.
