Hi There – I’m so new I’m not sure if this is even the right place for this question. I have a teak dining table that I sanded down, put conditioner on, and then stained with Minwax wood finish in ebony. It says I need to put a top coat on the ebony to protect the finish. I looked at the Minwax poly-wipe product, but am not to thrilled about having to put a coat on, sand, and then put a second coat on. I also don’t want a high-gloss finish as the rest of of the teak furniture is Scandinavian and has a real soft woody look. This being the first time I have every done any woodwork I was hoping I could get some advice. Should I use a Tung or Teak oil instead of poly-wipe for a top coat? Can I avoid having to sand again? Help? Thanks so much for any advice. If it matters, I think the table may be veneer.
