Do You Have Any Stain Suggestions?
I have a number of interior glulam beams in new construction and wish to stain them a medium brown color. I believe the glulams are likely a mixture of Douglas Fir and larch and as such have a lot of heart and sap wood which seems to make staining difficult to achieve a “uniform” color. Any suggestions for staining techniques and specific stains to use?
“Uniform color” and wood beams are really two different ideas, unless you want to paint the beams or use a solid color stain. Even on a natural timber, there will be significant differences on color between the sap wood, and heart wood, along with variations around the knots. Having said that, a natural stain (very light), or a very dark stain are probably your best bets.
Best regards and good luck with your project!
