Re: Don't sand first!

All of my brightwork is bare and gray. I've been agonizing over how to get started.

I'm pretty sure that I don't want the expense and work of varnish, but I can't decide between oil or Cetol. I've heard all the complaints about Cetol's odd color, and then I've heard about how newer flavors of Cetol have a much more natural look.

The one thing that I do know, is that I hate the gray, weather beaten look.

Sigh. What to do.

Re: Don't sand first!

I like gray if it is clean.

The regime I try to use but sometimes I don't:

Clean the teak. Then use Deks Olje #1 to oil and protect it. Protects and is pretty for a couple of months. Slowly grays but teak doesn't erode too much because of the oils and hardeners in the Deks. Each spring use lots of water and a green scrubbing pad to clean and repeat.

Re: Don't sand first!

Cetol Natural Teak is about the same as varnish, It's thick and rubber like when drying.

Re: Don't sand first!

I always liked Bristol Finish, but they had seemed to shut down operations over the winter. It looks like West Marine has it in stock again. Easy to apply, looks much like varnish and can recoat in one hour. A touch of acetone as thinner is advised.

Like all brightwork finishes (and I mean all), they do not like to get moisture underneath.

Re: Don't sand first!

Does the teak last longer if you only apply oil to it? Whatever little teak I have I oil once a year at the most. It seems to be very practical and it does not look bad at all to me.
