This is simplicity at its finest. The beautiful Northern White Cedar is eye-catching even when unfinished and if no stain is added, there is no need for touchups. But be aware that the color will gray, due to the elements. So, if you elect to keep your cedar kayak/canoe rack unfinished the color will change and the light, raw look will fade into gray. Even left unfinished our storage racks will last a good 25 years.
If you purchase a kayak/canoe rack from us and are planning on finishing it yourself be sure to let the wood age a little before staining/painting/etc. It’s also best to use breathable finishes, whichever finish you choose be sure to follow the instructions given for that exact brand.
