Default More Fun with Cetol

Okay, after trying and liking the Marine Light on a gate, I tried the Teak Version( read Brown, not Orange) on two outdoor chairs that I was tired of oiling each Spring and watching them turn Grey anyway.

2 coats of the Teak Version, 1 more to go. Sanded the chairs with 80g Granat, then 150g. Applied first coat, then just dragged 600g Abranet over the wood/finish to remove the fuzziness after each coat.

The Table has 6 coats of Epifanes Varnish. The chair has 3 coats of Sikkens Cetol.
I was willing to varnish and play with the upkeep on the table, but I wanted less work with the chairs.

After reading on several boating forums about using the Cetol gloss over the pigment Cetol, I've decided to add a few coats of the Gloss next Spring when we bring the chairs back out for the season.
