    Anyone out there doing home improvement projects with wood? :D I'm trying to transform sections of a tree we cut down into useful things around the house. Benches, tables, etc. My uncle mentioned something about an epoxy-type two part sealer that you can pour on, and it when it dries it's like a layer of glass over the wood. But he couldn't remember the name of it, and I haven't been able to google it.

    Anyone know what he was talking about? Or know of something I could use? I want a little coffee/drink table to leave out on my deck and maybe some benches around my fire pit. So they'll have to stand up to rain and snow. I know polyurethane breaks down after a while. I think the wood is cherry so it would be nice to have the grain come out.

    I got some at Home Depot 2 weeks ago. You pour it on instead of spraying it, and it claims to be like 40 layers of epoxy... It's great stuff (until you spill it:()

    Be careful with these epoxy's, some of them have a tendency to cloud up when exposed to constant weather/sun. Might want to look into a mineral oil or a wax, try ask this old house, I hear they respond to e-mails pretty promptly.

    Thanks for the heads up! I noticed a couple saying they don't yellow over time so that's definitely something I'll be looking for when I buy. It's gonna be a while though. I don't exactly have the proper tools to work with logs! :laugh: So it's gonna take a bit more time to get it where I want it.

    I may end up asking my coworker about his friend/neighbor with a portable sawmill.
