I have an interior door frame, which has been sawn locally in Sumatra, Indonesia from what is referred to as 'damar'. This I suspect is Agathis borneensis, or possibly Agathis dammara.
I looked up the wood, and it suggests:
'Susceptible to termites'
'Susceptible to dry wood insect borers'
'Poor to moderately durable to fungi'
Apparently Chromated Copper Fluoride treatment will protect against borers and termites in local conditions:
So I guess I need to source that.
I would also like to stain the wood.
Can anyone tell me what kind of products are needed?
I understand that there are many, i.e. wood stain, primer, sealer and varnish.
What combination of products and in what order should I use?
