CB, are you going to stain the cedar? i built a cedar pergola last year, i treated it with Thompson water sealer, but need to stain it this year..... The fresh look of cedar is amazing eh? not to mention how your driveway my smell right now, with all that fresh cut cedar right above the garage door wink .

Thompson sells a sealer with a stain... The Thompson product makes the water bead up and roll off of the wood, like a carnauba wax on a car. Pretty amazing..
