    That's really dark, and I like it! What did you use? I have been using the linseed oil / mineral spirits for years.

        Looks good! 75/25 works quite well for me.

              Sooo after all my hard work and woodworking for a while...I didn't think about using a non-waterbased or epoxy for teak due to it's oiliness....sooo ****...I used regular wood glue and biscuits to hold it together...I will test it out and let you know this afternoon...I am hoping the biscuits will help hold it all together

                  So after cutting the entire thing apart and scrapping all the middle slats...I glued it together with Titebond III after wiping it down with acetone (what I should have done the first time smh)

                    I'm almost sorry I asked. You did such a great job and the wood is fabulous, I just sincerely hope this works out for you.

                    • Thanks!...honestly you saved my a$s from finishing the whole project and it breaking apart in the water...I hadn't trimmed the platform up yet so everything was still square so I ran it through the table saw and cut it all apart...lots of work but saved me big time, THANKS!

                        • My before & after. Bleached, sanded, Tung Oil, 7 coats of UV protecting spar varnish. It can be slippery but not as bad as a freshly oiled platform. That was last spring and it still looks the same, minus a few dings from metal ski fin or wakeboard etc.

                            • It does look great. I just hear too many negs about varnishes. Even Spar. They have a tendency to start peeling. The oil is not slippery at all. You need to let it dry, and it will laaaast a looong time. I hope this works for you as it is a lot of work. Let us know how it works out.

                                Linseed oil / mineral spirits. Put many coats on and let it soak in. I'm pretty sure that batch was about 75% linseed. Burn used rags in outdoor fire pit. Don't let them lay around in the garage, but I'm sure you know that.
