Re: External iroko - Osmo UV Oil or Sikkens Cetol Filter 7 Plus

Hi all, I thought I'd report back after my experience of the Osmo UV oil. I'll have to get some pictures up, but in short - i've been extremely disappointed. The Iroko table show signs of silvering after a matter of months, even with a few coats of the Osmo UV oil. I guess it's to be expected as it ...

Possible, but the surface seems pretty hard. No problems with it on my external doors. Can I add the pigment for UV prote...

My only concern with the Sikkens, or any other stain is that it sits on the wood rather than soaking in to it - so it might get scratched easily by metal buttons on jeans etc... Can I add the pigment for UV protection via another method, either a dye/preserver or ma...

Re: External iroko - Osmo UV Oil or Sikkens Cetol Filter 7
