Have you thoughjt about using Linseed oil? its used on things like gunstocks to furniture..learned about in high school shop class....just put a coat on my outdoor wood furniture.. protects from the sun and rain and gives the wood a beautiful finish.........

More commonly known here in RD as........"aceite de linaza".

Be careful how you dispose of any rags or other applicators coated with linseed oil. - Spontaneous combustion risk.

Nice! I need Minwax products! But what is Ochoa, una ferreteria? Never heard of it. What's the full name of this business? Thanks.

You want to Stain or SEAL ?
Stains I know nothing about , but if you want to SEAL.
I have found nothing better than Waterlox Marine Sealer , the green/ yellow Label good stuff . if you find that , you are golden..
Kreosote is pretty much outlawed everywhere, but it may still be available in the DR ?
that stuff was the best , back in the day . If u find it , buy it immediately.

Hello All,

I hope you are all safe and well. Wow! What a beautiful new UI on the forum. I haven't been around for a while . . .

I am having some bookcases made of unfinished pine. After watching a bunch of YouTube video on stains and techniques, I go to three hardware stores with large paint sections, e.g. Ferreteria Cuesta on Febrero 27. And zip! Tintes no hay. Nothing in sight. Now I'm thinking that stains may not even exist in this country and that I might have to pay RD$275.00 per pound ordering from the U.S. via Vimenpaq.

Any ideas?

Thanks!


You can find them at Bellon, lots of them!
