Our poor Parker dining suite gets the full brunt of the western sun. As a consequence, it needs to be oiled regularly to make sure it doesn't dry out and fade from sun damage.
With the sunroom renovation nearing conclusion, it was time to pay some much needed attention to the table and chairs.
I usually give it a once over with Danish teak oil and some beeswax. This time I tried some Penetrol multi- purpose wood oil. I wanted to achieve a longer lasting finish because it does not take long for the Danish oil and wax to dull - its position in the sunroom does it no favours.
Anyway, so far so good. I dusted the table down and removed all the built up marks before applying the Penetrol. The oil just soaked into the teak.
I gave it two coats and then an extra aggressive buff with a lint free cloth.
It looks as good as new for a late 60s dining suite.
