Good advice Kelly. I was thinking Teak Oil was a non-hardening oil but that’s why I wanted to ask this question. After reading your comment it got me thinking about Thompsons Water Seal, the original clear stuff, not the tinted version. What is Thompsons? Is that a non-hardening oil? If its good enough for decks its probably good enough for furniture.

As far as pressure washing, won’t that be bad for the joints? The chairs for instance are put together mostly with pegged slip tennons and some of those joints are reinforced with long brass bolts. Then the table top has a lot of tongue and groove joints. Maybe a very low pressure wash is in order. I just cant imagine forcing water into these joints would be a good thing.
