[quote Yes you need to weather and prep kiln dried wood if applying to the smooth side. The wait is less (1-2 months) and you need to prep the remove the mill glaze. There is more to it then just moisture content of the wood. Use the 100 Series.[/quote]
Thanks for the prompt response. Plan was to apply to the ROUGH side. Does this change the weather time, or more importantly the mill Glaze removal?

I've read good reviews about the quality of the TWP100 as well as the 1500. I like it's color retention(resistance to UV breaking down color).
I'd like to apply it to an outdoor kitchen surface that is Kiln dried 'Tight Knot' Cedar. Plan to apply to rough side. (wood is new)
Concern is the application description seems difficult. Waiting 4-12 months to acclumate, then apply some additional cost cleaner starts to make this seem less attractive.
Does the 4-12 month period still apply if the wood is Kiln Dried?
BTW: Still not clear on benefits of TWP100 vs. 1500. What do you recommend? I live in North Texas, so real hot summers and short winters.
Looking for Client sample clear flat stain samples on wood chips, can you tell me where to get them
What do you recommend using on pressure treated wood. I live in Florida..facing sw . Will paint large beam deck ceiling of my studio. Thanks Deb
I live in SE Oklahoma and recently had a small porch built onto my home. The porch was built with pressure treated pine that has a "yellow color to it at this time and it is trimmed out with cedar. The siding on my home is a log looking siding that I assume is pine also, it is sealed with a cedar tone stain that has held up well. I also had new fascia boards installed and they are cedar. In addition to the new porch and fascia boards I have an older shed with rough cut cedar siding that needs to be sealed and stained., Which of the TWP products would be best for these applications the 100 or the 1500? I plan on using the restore a deck on all of the surfaces. Thanks for the information.
need help with twp color to choose. I have a mahogany porch and want to keep the natural color and wood grain. I tried a sample of twp natural and it seems to be too dark. Any suggestions? I understand tha clear does not give the UV and appearance protection as the color stains. Thank you
Need to order 3 samples of 1500 series to try
I have used Cabots Deck Stain and it gives the wood a nice rich color, but was not as pleased with its durability. I have also used TWP101 Cedartone and it absorbed well but am not at all pleased with the color. Is masks the wood tone and is very flat. I assume this is due to the pigment. It I were to switch to Natural 1530 would I get a richer look, like you get when you add linseed oil to a wood? Does 1530 have any pigments? Am I giving up UV protection with 1530?
