He's unique because he's bent. I liked him beacaues he looked so happy and full of Pep. Hence his name; "Pepe" I'm contemplating whether or not to stain him, or just seal.

Input ?

McTiki, you're right, he really looks happy, nice job. I would just seal him up first and see how that looks You can always add stain later, but he has a nice 2-tone effect not that is very pleasing.

Seal it! Stain would only detract from the contrasting colors.

Seal it is! Thanks all for the props! We started a pine log lastnight. This will be different as it is a little harder to cut. We also placed the main beams on our tahitian roof style bar. Pics will start coming soon. I wanted to get the hard stuff done before the temperatures soar upwards.

Sorry about that TeaKey. Just my reality and yes, we live in zone 10! Having lived in Denver for 6 yrs before landing ashore here in the outback of the US, I know what your saying What a mess my basement would be if I carved then... Insane.

Sorry for making you feel more feverish. (not really sorry) but, feel free to post pics of your basement work as soon as possible!!! Happy stuff!

Most sincere Mahalos~!
