    Default 124 yr old posts

    Hi everyone,
    I'm currently building a new shop, in a 124 year old building that used to house one of new England's oldest soda companies in the 1890s, LaCroix soda.....
    We'll in side there are very interesting features, and one of them I'd like to preserve. They are span beam supports that have a lot of character and old charm, and would like to keep preserved. To keep a bit of the buildings historic value..... Problem is I don't know how to do so, and keep customers safe from splinters etc...
    Should I use a urethane, shellac? I don't want to wire brush them or sand them due to the fact that surface hold much character...any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you!

    A satin poly will work.
