Hi, please can you tell me how you treated the cedar cladding and what stain you used to achieve the finish?

We started with Cabot mix of Semi transparent, and semi solid slate grey. We always tweak it in the field with finish samples. This can be your starting point, but you should test finish samples with your wood material before committing.

I love the treatment on the cedar as well! Beautiful. I just want to confirm that you used slate grey versus dark slate -- can you please confirm the stain color?

Also, when you say that you mixed the semi and solid stains -- did you have them color the stains and then just mixed 50/50 in the field? I really want to recreate this look on our cedar fence we are having built.

Really wonderful work!

What stated above is exactly what is listed in our drawings. I believe they mix in the field. There may have been adjustments in the field, so I cannot confirm 100%. The best thing to do is get your species of wood and do finish samples until you are happy with the outcome. If you are using different wood species, it may look different.
