How to Freshen Bee Hive Treated with Tung Oil
Last year I treated my cedar bee hive with 3 coats of tung oil. After a year in the elements, the sides look okay but the roof is very gray. I need to refinish it to protect the wood as well as to make it look better.
Do I need to strip the tung oil off? If so, what do I use?
After that, what would be the best option to use to finish it? A stain with a sealer? Or paint? Or just tung oil again?
I don't know anything about woodworking, so I'm sure this is probably an elementary question, but I found too many answers in an internet search so I would appreciate advice for this particular project. I'm not trying to win a woodworking contest, I just want my bee hive to not be an eyesore in the landscape.
Thanks in advance.
