 Timber care - bathtub tom
I've a hardwood (sapele I think) glazed front door and frame. It's been there for over forty years, South facing.
Initially I used to treat it with yacht varnish, but that never lasted. The last time I did it with Wickes ten year wood stain. That lived up to its name and some. That was a mahogany finish, but it was more like a paint in that it was opaque and too dark.
I'm thinking I'll burn it off and sand them down and use Sadolin. One coat of classic Burma teak, followed by a coat of extra durable Burma teak or clear (depending on what the first coat looks like).

Any opinions welcome.
