Sealing the Exterior Wood... what sealant?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Any suggestions on sealing up the exterior of my smoke house build that would be safe to use?

 

Thanks!

Think about boiled Linseed Oil....

That's what I have been leaning towards. Straight or thinned with mineral spirits?

I would thin it with about 20-25% mineral spirits...  that way it will penetrate and hopefully not leave a sticky gooey surface...    If it looks like it will be sticky etc., brush on a second coat of just mineral spirits to spread it around....  or just live with it...

Last minute change of sealing plans... I found Agralife Timber Seal and it looks really good... non-toxic and even food safe.  Excellent looking product with great reviews. I found it on Home Depot's website and since they don't stock it at my store I had them ship it to the store.  Not too bad of a price... $39.95 for a gallon. The product has great specs that are hard to ignore... I am sure the linseed oil would be fine, but wanted to step it up a notch.  

 

I appreciate the input!!!  :smile:

My father in law had a 5 gallon bucket of brick red oil based exterior paint. So in a couple of hours of painting, we have preserved the walk-in smoker for decades.
