Wood protectant for seating surfaces

Recommended Posts

Search didn't show anything.

I have some chairs for the boat of a softer than teak looking wood.  I initially wasn't going to treat with anything and let it go gray, but now the wood is starting to crack.

I'd usually use teak oil or boiled linseed oil, but this is a seat, so clothing is a concern.

 

Any thoughts on a wood protector that would do ok in the sun but not come off on clothes?   On my wood hand tools I use boiled linseed oil and then buff in wax. I don't think this would work outside.

 

Varnish isn't an option since I am so sick of refinishing boat bits as it is.  Cetol either...

Now that is interesting...  people use this on counter-tops and all sorts of stuff.  I wonder how it stays put outside.   Good tip, TY 

I will investigate.

Have you used it on a chair?  

 

My concern is clothing.

I have.  It dries completely.  No concerns regarding clothing
