What about ‘softer’ wood types?

“Fur­ni­ture made of so-called ‘soft tim­ber’, such as South African pine, can con­fi­dently be used and left out­doors, pro­vided it’s prop­erly treated with a sealant that pro­tects the wood from UV-ra­di­a­tion, makes it wa­ter-re­sis­tant and sta­bilises it di­men­sion­ally (so that it doesn’t split or warp),” says Frikkie Gre­eff of Woodoc. “Woodoc Wa­ter-Borne Deck Sealer to­gether with Woodoc Plus Life Primer will pro­tect wooden fur­ni­ture and en­sure that it re­mains in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion for many years. As with any project, how­ever, one must pre­pare the wood cor­rectly and ap­ply the prod­ucts in the right way to get the best re­sults. Al­ways fol­low the man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions care­fully.” >>
