    Hi All.

    I am having my canopy and cabinet made out of real wood. Can anyone tell me what the best waterproof sealer is to use and how much it will cost? Don't want to use any crappy sealants that will make the wood swell or worse, poison my Live Stock.

    Thanks

    internally i use velvaglo white as it has a built in antifungacide, but externally i use woodoc 5 and this can be tinted with a stain (color) of your choice..

    ensure there is good airflow/ventilation inside the canopy and cabinet at mould will grow there over time as the antifungacide tires...

    Thanks Leslie. I like the idea of the white inside the canopy, because it will help with light reflection. And you are sure the velvaglo is 100% safe and water proof? Should I paint the insides with woodoc first and then over with the velvaglo?
