I’m building some outdoor furniture and would like to apply a good finish. The pieces are made of pine for the leg frames and bases, white cedar slats for the bench and seats. I will also attach white oak pads for everything in ground contact. The surface of the patio where they will be is 3/4″ stone in stone dust with flagstone for walkways and seating area around the firepit. Everything will be brought in during winter months.
Whew, that was a mouthfull.
Long story short – a friend recommended Autstralian Timber Oil. I looked at the ingredients and it looks quite promising.
Can anyone weigh in on this and let me know if this would be a good choice? I’ve thought of making my own oil/varnish homebrew but I’m not confident in choosing the write ingredients. Or suffice to say I’m not sure I could come up with something any better than the Australian Oil from Cabot.
Am I chasing a fools errand? Oh yeah, cost IS a consideraation.
