I am in South Carolina. My deck was done with Olympic Wood Protector oil base semi-transparent stain (Caramel color) just before we bought the house. Seeing your pictures makes me drool and when this Olympic dies I want to do something along the lines of some of the lighter stuff you do. I love the look of your dark cedar but I like to walk around in bare feet so the darker stains here in the steamy south would make it too hot.
You mention TWP but I am not familiar with this brand. Is there a particular chain that might sell it. I will search for their site and see if they have a dealer locator.
Keep up the good work. It is truly nice to see a craftsman who takes great pride in what they do. I think I speak for all of us when I say I admire you.
PS I can try to get some pics up but the deck doesn't look too bad right now. We are two years into it. I expect the stain to start failing sometime next summer.
