Mahogany Porch Floor Coating?


I installed a Mahogany porch floor at my house last year and sealed it with Cabots Australian timber oil. well, its already ready to be coated again and I want to use another product.

anyone know if a 50/50 mixture of linseed oil and mineral spirits would work well to preserve the wood and keep the natural look of the Mahogany?

any other suggestions? NO Thompsons product recommendations please.

Try the Armstrong Clark deep penetrating oil based lines. The formula has boiled linseed oils as well as drying and non drying oils that recondition the dried out wood and keep the uv rays at bay for longer.

Mahogany Porch Floor Coating?


I've tried the australian timber oil for the last few years on my mahogany porch and I'm also looking to use another product. I liked the way it looked the forst year but, that was it. The oil isn't going into the wood any longer and reamins tackey for weeks. Would be intersted in what you ended up doing or other suggestions. I was thinking of having it sanded and using some polyurethane but that might be slippery.

Well I washed it and applied Sherwin Williams Acrylic Clear over the wood. this winter something happened and it looks like total crap now.

I am going to have to strip it and apply a new product. Spar Varnish would look nice but I am concerned with how it will hold up on such a large and flat surface.

TWP makes a wood shingle roof sealer that I might try. Haven't decided yet
