I followed TMCNo1's technique last year and this year and both times turned out great. I figured it would be very slippery but it is not.

If the platform is slick, it is because the teak oil is still wet and has not set up hard and is still just oil sitting on top. Trust me, if it has dried, it will not be slick, even with wax and furniture polish on it and I can say that after living with this platform I have for 18 years.

I started the process last night. I will take some pictures when I am finished. I have to get some more teak oil to finish it up.
