So I’m getting my flow hive set and ready to go outside soon. I’ve assembled and sanded everything smooth, just need to waterproof to prevent mold/discoloration/warping in all the rain.
I saw the recomendation about tung oil, and it sure does look pretty, but I don’t want to have to reapply every few months. Ideally I’d like to stain and seal it w/ a waterproof coating, like a polyurethane.
What did you use? what brand? How many coats?
Did you need to stain or do some sort of oiling first to get the color to pop before sealing it?
