    Finishing Red Cedar and Cypress

    Anyone have a good suggestion as to what to use to finish ERC and Cypress for outdoor use? (Swings, outdoor furniture etc.) Would like to keep the natural look as much as possible with little to no "gloss." Any experience with any of the Thompson's Water Seal products?

    E. Red Cedar Finish Suggestions

    Folks: If any of you have experience with a good finish for red cedar for the outdoor environment, I'd appreciate your suggestions/experience. I have some red cedar swings we are building and several people have asked how to preserve the "cedar look" and what type finish to use. Thanx.
