Re: Bulkhead refinishing question

Another wood butcher here who hates Polyshades. What an awful product!

Since I'm not a fan of that finish I would NOT coat it with anything with anything except perhaps sandpaper! Let the weather get to it and maybe some of it will fall off.

What I like for finishing Teak & Mahogany is to oil the wood first (teak oil or tung oil) and then apply a coating like varnish or Cetol. Oils bring out the grain and color of the wood while most stains cover it.

Mostly, throw out or give away that Polys-hades crap.
