Just bought garden table/chairs made of Bolivian Roble which is allegedly a high sap content hardwood. In the UK I can't find the wax that is required for maintaining the wood & finish. Some online sites state teak oil isn't recommended as Roble normally has a high moisture content & the oil doesn't soak in too well. The moisture content of my stuff is only 2% & I can't find anything better than teak oil - appreciate if anyone has any suggestions or thoughts on this. Many thanks :smile:

I would use Penofin red label.
