  varnish before or after drilling?
  Posted by: melenas on Nov-03-12 10:06 AM (EST)

it seems like everyone varnishes the ends while only some give the rest a few new coats, and noone has any problems either way.

Now, if I varnish before drilling, wouldn't the water get into the untreated wood inside the drill holes making it rot and fail just like it would with untreated ends? Do people drill first and varnish later?
