      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Use an oil-based polyeurathane... Satin finish. Clean up takes longer but I like the results better.

Put the poly on before you put the boards on the wall or ceiling. Its easy to get a uniform finsih if the boards are laying horizontally on saw horses or a table.

I found if you apply a sanding sealer first then your choice of finishes the grain stands out and the yellowing with most finishes in time slows.

I threw on a coat of poly on the backside as well before I put my pine on the basement walls. I shouldn't have to worry about moisture, but I did it just in case.

I sanded between coats on the front side too to keep it smooth.

SB, what's a "sanding sealer"?

I used 3 coats of water based poly on a wood wall in my family room. Hung up wildlife pictures 2 days later. That was in 2002, and now I took the deer pictures to my shed (man cave) and there has been significant yellowing. Anybody had better results with something else?

Sascho makes a great, easy to use stain and sealer. Their product name for the stain is "Capture". For interior applications you would use their "Symphony" clear sealer over the stain coat. Capture is offered in plenty of colors from light to dark. Their "Natural" is a very popular color. If you want to keep the pine clear, Symphony is a great product on its own as well. Sashco products aren't available in many places in Minnesota but Schroeder Log Home Supply in Grand Rapids offers it online as well a phone orders.
