Hi, I am after advice on the a suitable finish to use on 3 large redwood lintels in a newly finished extension. I don’t want to paint or varnish the lintels, but want to keep them looking as natural as possible. I have read on the Forum about using Osmo oil, but have never done so myself so have no direct knowledge of it. I would be grateful for any advice on using Osmo or any other finish that would leave the timber looking as it does now.

Nothing you can apply to pine will keep it looking pale and "natural". They're going to darken and yellow, come what may. Why do you want to apply a finish? Timber lintels were traditionally left un-finished, albeit, they weren't traditionally made of pine.
