But there is one thing wrong in your pics - the White Sox??  Where's the Cubs poster?   Big Grin

Once again, thank you to everyone  Yes
The ship lap is 1/2" thick.
As to the Cubs poster?
That's where we wipe the mud off our boots entering the shop  Big Grin

Fully sand and prep surfaces.
Wet it to raise the grain and sand lightly.
Stain base color with aniline dye to set underlying color.
Seal with Sealacell.
Wipe on gel stain  and wipe off.........the sealer prevents the rays from taking stain.
Shellac and wax for finish coats.

Exactly what I thought.  What specific colors did you choose for the dye and gel stain?

I used Reddish brown Transtint with a little dark mission brown added to tone down the red a bit.
Gel coat was General finishes "Java"

Thanks
