The question now is do I paint it or just use stain or linseed?

I personally wouldn't paint it. I like a weathered look. My son makes picture frames and has a mixture that he uses to make the wood look weathered. I think it's made with vinegar and tea.

I am inclined to say to just use a stain and boiled linseed oil or even linseed oil only. What are the dimensions of this model barn?

I don't know about that Bill. I looked back and my original post was Feb 1. It does not take Cleary that long to build a barn :twisted: I have no idea how many hours I have in it but it's a bunch.

It didn't turn out too bad. And just in time to get busy with other work. I don't think I'll be doing much hobbies for a while now.
