there is a waterproofing recipe that we use for sealing wood projects
on boats, such as transoms, dashboards, seats, etc.
it soaks into the wood and cures solid – when following the regimen closely.
after a full cure, it can be varnished or painted over pretty much guaranteeing somewhat
of a maintenance free coating. of course all this is done before installing any glass panes.
the final topcoat will determine how often repriming and repainting will take place as well
as the environment it is in.
the bottoms of the windows where water accumulates would be the most vulnerable
to rot. this would be where I would also use a penetrating epoxy for double insurance.
sorry I can’t offer any info on the wood itself, that is totally out of my wheelhouse.
painting windows with muntins is a real pane !!!!
