Just a note about Teak oil.
There are two types of teak oil for use in interior and exterior environments.
The exterior is typically found in a marine supply store and is thicker. It is not really intended for fine furniture use. (DAMHIKT)
The interior is usually available in furniture stores, much thinner and dries quicker.
If your furniture is outside and exposed to any kind of elements I would suggest using the marine exterior stuff. It may take a few days to dry but it will protect your outdoor furniture.
All of the teak oil that I have applied (interior and exterior) tend to make the wood look richer, brings out the grain and colors the wood toward a ridish / brownish warmer color. The weathered look of grey is transformed to this warmer look.
Use the right tool for the job.
