Teak oil

Recommended Posts

So just getting ready to oil a big bench that I will post some pictures of soon, I had a bottle of teak oil with a little bit left so baught some more this morning and just mixing them together and my girlfriend notices that one one label it says ideal for Oak products and on the other label it says not suitable for Oak products so I have never had an issue when using teak oil on Oak, init bonkers one make says good for Oak and another says not good, just thought I would share my observations

Cheers Mark

Mark,

 

I have recently been using Rye Oils Decking oil, seems to be pretty good and I have used on both soft and hard wood gates and furniture, my be worth a try in the future.

Best oil is tung oil.

Yeap, it's the most relevant part of any oil treatment .... but also frustrating to use as it can take so long to dry, I've been using driers in conjunction with the Tung for a while..... they make a big difference and I've achieved my best results in this way, if you can get a mixture formula that you find to work for you , it's by far the cheapest way to go, cheers.....Having said that Osmo's also great but costly.

Teak oil is a generic name so they are not necessarily the same formula. Same with Danish oil. They are just blends of oil and driers

Only just started experimenting with different oils, but as most of my stuff is for outside, (carvings /benches etc) I'm tending to be leaning more towards decking oil.
