Nothing works perfectly with oak as it is so inclined to go black Roll Eyes but Liberon garden furniture oil works best in my opinion.

Treating green oak
Oct 6th, 2005, 9:46pm
 
Is there a way to preserve the colour of oak  without having to varnish, strip and re-varnish every few years? If left naked it goes a nice silver colour which is ok but I prefer it as cut.

I was wondering if there was an oil/wax like product that doesn't have to be stripped off each time - you just apply more.

The problem with transparent paints/stains is that unless you get all of the original coat off you get darker patches showing through the new coat.

Any ideas?
