Organ Oil for Outdoor Furniture
I recently used this product on some of my work . Four weeks passed and i went into the garage and to my surprise the jarrah piece i used it on looked terrible ... Now i also used it on some jarrah outdoor seats that i made for a customer , so i'm now stressing .. Can someone let me know what results they have had with this product and whats the best application?

Like any oil it takes multiple applications over time.
I coat using a spray bottle ($2 shop) let it sit for 15 - 20 mins then rub off.
I do this 2 or 3 times on the first day.
a week or so later I give it another coat
then when ever it starts to look 'dusty', meaning it starts to lose the deep colour. This works out to be every 8 months or so depending on the weather and if the piece is fully exposed or under a veranda.
This could be completely wrong but it has worked so farGreat minds discuss ideas,
average minds discuss events,
small minds discuss people

A wise fella once told me
If you are considering oil to finish timber the rule of thumb is:
Once a day for a week
Once a week for a month
Once a month for a year
Once a year for five years
then sand back and refinish
I still can't work out if he was trying to encourage or discourage me though

Sean, do a forum search on organoil. There's been a fair bit of discussion on the problems with pure oil finishes. You'll have a lot of trouble getting a finish that looks good / brings out timber / jarrah beauty with orgainoil, IMHO.

Bris ben know that one . The can says one coat once a year so i thought great product . I have used linseed oil many times and although not the best product really, it does last well on jarrah . I'm after some product thats easy to use on jarrah as i'm now making a few jarrah outdoor tables . Oil preferred as i'm useless with poly finishes . Honestly i think this Organoil is carp , smells good though .
