Interior Teak Bulkheads
« on: July 22, 2013, 06:01:08 PM »
I had recently read that lemon oil works well on the interior teak bulk heads.  Previous owners of Dulcinea had done me the favor of not varnishing the bulkheads in the main salon, but as a result the wood was dry looking and unevenly colored where cushions had shaded the wood.  I bought a bottle of Parker & Bailey's Lemon Oil from Amazon (I'm sure there are other great brands out there).  Following the instructions, a rag and some elbow grease, it was about a 30-minute affair and the results were really good.  The wood soaked it up but didn't leave a residue or wasn't tacky or oily at all.  It looks a lot more "alive".  The stuff did not streak and produced a look that was consistent, even in those areas that were slightly off-color due to the shading by the cushions.  Compared to our normal projects, it was easy and the results were great.  Just thought I'd pass it along.
