finishing the sole

I've spent ages researching what to recoat the sole boards with.... its a tough environment... regular foot traffic, often wet, needs to not be slippery when wet, and on to a wood that is naturally oily (teak).

I've had more advice than you can imagine....

I've ended up with a decision t use finishing oil. Designed for wet environments, such as kitchens and bathrooms, gives a lovely shiny or matt finish depending upon how you apply it, is hard wearing, easy to apply, and easy to add another coat as and when needed.

Will see how it goes...

I also need to do more work on the sole... its getting there, but suspect that the finishing oil will show every little remaining finish... so it must be really back to bare wood.... another sanding session coming on!

Just for reference, i've settled on Liberon Finishing Oil if anyone is interested.
