    Default Tongue & groove - stain?

    Should new T&G be stained or treated? What would you use?
    Oh my god - she's gone and got the eventing bug! I will send you some antibiotics! Take the entire bottle and do two hunter shows and it will pass!

    I stained and polyurethaned mine in a walnut color. The problem is you need to redo it every four or five years. But, it is beautiful.

    If it's untreated, yes, it should be treated with something.

    I used a clear spar urethane. I've seen walnut and pecan colors used and boy are they beautiful! But, I wanted to keep things lighter in color, so went with clear. The wood has gotten a rich orange color to it.

    We treated ours with Duckback Stain. It turned out very nice.

    I used this http://www.homedepot.com/buy/paint/e...ish-54882.html on our last place and it worked great. I chose not to urethane over it.

    This looks like what we need. The stained wood is gorgeous but I'm more interested in low maintenance. I think a clear coat or waterproof type sealer would be best for us.

    Do you do both inside and outside the stall or only outside where horses wouldn't possible chew or lick surface? my T&G is only the front wall both inside and outside the stall.

    All the information as to toxicity involves the liquid state so it's unknown as to any possible effect when dry. I used it both inside and outside stalls with no problems,

    I plan to do all the walls. Maybe it will make the walls less tasty
