My chapter does the same thing. I use Anchorseal frequently, however, for anyone using it to coat outdoor-stored wood, be aware that it does degrade over a month or two and the wood will begin to dry and crack the same as if it weren’t coated at all. In my opinion, all of the water/wax sealers are a short-term solution. When I have to buy myself extended time, I will double or triple coat with Anchorseal. Also, keep the wood away from direct sun and wind exposure.
