I have an addiction to teak! I LOVE it! I love the color. I love the texture. I love the grain. I love that so many beautiful things were made out of it during the Danish mid-century era. I love that I have found most of mine at thrift stores. And I can't WAIT to use it at Thanksgiving when we will be seating and feeding 25 people.
I got out all my "woodware" (some isn't teak) this weekend and started oiling it up in preparation for using it next week. Mineral oil works great. But I also found a lovely beeswax/oil mixture:
"Bee Keeper's Gold" from Williams Sonoma. It is the perfect combination of wax and oil and gives the wood a beautiful patina!
I wish I could have remembered to take some "before pictures!
