    I don't know what "everyone" is doing.
    But, with eastern red cedar I don't use any finish. I just let nature turn it a beautiful (IMHO ) gray.

    Behr Deck fence& siding weatherproofing wood stain.

    BUT ......make sure to follow their directions and use their stripper and wood prep mix. Its guaranteed for 8 years on fences and 6years on decks. I can also vouch for their guarantee. I made some mistakes putting mine on and one season later it was coming off.. So i was mad. called them told them and they the. told me where i had gone wrong. Then before i could get my dukes up they said not to worry they would cover all the materials to redo including strippers and wood prep and the right amount of stain. I was impressed. I used the semi transpArent narural cedar colour and it comes out great.

    sent from my Atrix
    cheers
