Teak coffee table – Teak wood is often used for garden furniture, because it is durable and has a high oil content, which makes it water-resistant. However, teak is still susceptible to other harmful factors like dust and animal feces. Finish your teak coffee table with a coating of tung oil will help protect against everything it could harm.
If your teak coffee table is not new, you must surface to remove dirt before you can apply a finish. Mix a few drops of dishwashing liquid with water in a bucket and clean the timber thoroughly. Allow the wood to dry for 4 hours before continuing. RUB the entire surface of the timber with a copper or brass wool pad. Stick teak brightener to the surface of the wood. Allow the solution to sit for about 10 minutes and then wipe it off with a soft cloth.
Pour some tung oil on the surface of the wood. Work the oil into the wood with a soft cloth until no more oil will not absorb more maybe for 2 hours. Apply a second layer of oil over the first. In general, this coat will require less time to apply, because the pores of the wood are now full. Allow the oil to dry overnight before your teak coffee table.
