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

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!
