Hi everyone, I’m in the process of making a pair of oak gates for my daughters new house. I’m just wandering if anyone has a suggestion for the best type of finish to use, to retain the natural oak colour but also to reduce the maintenance my daughter will need to do on the gates.
I’ve seen a post on YouTube that mixed varnish with teak oil, and also been advised not to use yacht varnish. If it were an indoor piece I’d use shellac but not suitable for outside use, so I’m informed.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
