It should be possible to check with a moisture meter, but I'm not sure what the maximum moisture level for staining would be.

Cheers, Wayne

I meant exposed to the elements after installation. Leaving it in the sun without securing it in place gives you some very curvy boards. Bad enough to bow when it is secured.

The US Department of Agriculture Forest Products Laboratory has done extensive testing. I'm recalling from several years ago, or I'd give you a link to a report or something. To cut right to it:
If you want the absolute most protection: Apply the water based stain right away. But do realize that the stain will not remain as intense in color as time goes on. A more solid pigmented stain will offer more protecion than a semi-transparent.

If you would rather have the stain remain a more consistent color as time goes on, and you don't mind the minimal amount of protection you're losing, then wait 6 months after installation (or sitting in your garage or whatever).
The previous is for water based stains.

If you have an oil based stain, disregard the above. You need to get the boards bone dry for the oil to penetrate into the wood.

Hinge question

I know this might seem like a simple question, but I really want to be sure. Where does the hinge have to go when connecting up a gate? I have a pic attached to show what I mean. Which one:
1, 2 or 3?

Hi, David.

We're missing data. More info, please. That close up picture could be the skinny edges of the gate, the face of the gate, the inside face of the post, or the outside face of the post. And which way are you swinging the gate?

In the picture, are those the posts, or the gates?

They are posts for a gate.

Left swing is defined as using the left hand to pull on the door knob that’s on the left side of the door when you’re facing it and pulling it towards you. So, if your diagram represents the post (rather than the gate), #1 example would be the answer to your question.

Left Swing: Hinges on left when pulling door toward you. Same thing Tonto said. Fewer words.

While opening the door.

You guys need to be a bit careful about that door swing stuff. I guarantee it varies a bit by salesman and locale.

Safest method I've ever found to avoid confusion and mistakes is called the Butt-to-the-Butts method. Stand in the door opening with your butt against the jamb with the hinge butts on it (either actually or in your fertile imagination) and swing your arm from the opening. The arm that represents the action of the installed hinges is the door swing.

Saves a lot of explanation time and eliminates the open-in or open-out factor and the Hinge-on-the-left, knob-on-the-left conundrum. A left-hand swing is a left hand swing is a left hand swing forever regardless the door location or purpose.

Right, that's the rule I used to figure out what the previous posters had left out of their descriptions.

I agree on being careful about talking about door swing.

I like CX's description. Never heard that one before. But I was taught one that's just as simple...

Stand on the side of the door that you can physically see the hinge when the door is closed. Ok...if the hinge is on the left side of the door, it's a "Left Hinge" (which is equal to "Right Swing"). And vice versa.
