The timber will get a treatment with oil based wood stain. Because the shelf is for the bathroom, I am worried about damp from the shower etc. The bathroom is well vented as we let damp out through the window, but of course the walls and furniture get wet a bit.
What would you advise for the frame and shelf unit itself? Do I need to seal the joints or will the wood be able to just breath and dry by itself?
