I have materials delivered on Fridays, by the time I start the deck on Monday the boards that are on the outside of the lumber pile are relatively dry. The ones in the middle are still saturated and much heavier.
So you think it would be OK to go ahead and stain this table? This table 'should' never get rained on so getting wet from weather is not a real issue but I would love to stain it with something like the Australian Timber Oil that Lowes sells...
