weathered...














Found a gallon of waterproofing sealant when I was cleaning up the greenhouse.  Figured I'd slap a couple of coats on the solar oven rather than replace the exterior surfaces  Except for the face of the door which I did replace, the OSB has held up pretty well considering it has been out in the elements for so long..  83,90,48,0,B

I live in the desert too, southern Nevada. I coat all my lumber with waterseal before I use it. It makes a good primer for surfaces requiring a finish coat of paint and it keeps dry rot from occurring. I got stuff that's been around 30 years still going strong. If you are going to let your oven live outside, you'll be glad you sealed it.

I get all the chemicals I'll ever need at my local landfill's HazMat facility. Penetrating oil, Thompson's Water Seal, small (and large) propane cylinders, you name it. People drop it off because they don't need what's left, or a family member had died and they're cleaning out.
