Hi everyone :) just signed up to the site.

I like to have a go at doing things myself if possible to save a bit of money. The end result is normally pretty good apart from the back patio disaster a few weeks ago. Laying a patio is harder than it looks.

Anyway the reason im here is that iv just bought a couple of oak sleepers to make a basic chunky flush edged fire surround and i have no idea what to finish the wood in. I like the look of the beams you see in fire shops that have a kind of polished waxy look to them but still retain the woods natural character. Any help on what product i need and how to apply it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

danny

Welcome, cannot really help you other than to ask, are your sleepers coated in tar or clean and untreated.
