Cedar bar/railing tops

These are some pics from a project last spring. Cedar standing /sitting bars installed under patio at local brewery. 42" height roughly 8’ between posts. One pic of my son doing some prep work, and one after coming off the mill.

Jack ...

That is some beautiful cedar and some beautiful craftsmanship Wes. Might I ask what kind of preservative or top coating you used? I have a supply and looking to make something from it.

Thanks Jack.. All I put on for now was pure tongue oil (not the furniture grade). The oil held up well. However this spring I may give them a fresh sanding and try a spar varnish of some sort. I chose just oil to start due to the fact that this cedar went from standing tree to install in three days (wanted to slow the drying). well that and i like just being able to reapply. I’m not sure what i’ll try i’ve not found a clear coat that stands up to the beating of the sun.
