I'm FINALLY back in the shop this week, working on the adirondack chairs I promised months ago.
Everything is cut, surfaced, routed, and prepped. Last night I drilled and countersunk all my holes. I am ready for assembly. OR AM I?
It's made of plain old PT pine. I will be staining w/ a redwood color deck stain.
Should I stain it BEFORE or AFTER assembly? My main concern is that if I stain AFTER assembly, I will miss many surfaces as they are affixed to other surfaces and/or impossible to get to.
I don't have a sprayer, I will be brushing.
