    Default Feast Watson Matt Look decking oil

    After a lot of research on this website and the highly recommend allen staines deck building book I have just finished my first deck! low level and only stage one of a bigger project but i am happy with my first effort.

    With regards to oiling the spotted gum i was looking at using Feast and watson matt look decking oil, has anyone used this and have any thoughts?

    I built a spotted gum deck and used the FW natural water based oil. It comes up a treat, you'll be happy with the results I think. Like most deck products though you have to re apply every year or so. I found mine lasted a year at most.

    I have done two decks with Matt oil, it goes on nicely, but found it darkens much quicker than other oils, such as Ultradeck.

    It’s been raining solidly here in Sydney for a couple of weeks here but so dry weather is on the horizon, is it best to let the deck dry out for a few days or so before I oil it or does it not matter? The boards have swelled in the rain and gaps have closed up in so spots, should I wait until it shrinks back to how it was when laid?
