Did all the required prep and used a non-air commercial sprayer to apply. Went on smoothly and dried completely in 48 hours.Over sprayed many plants. Rinsed off what I could and only had a few leaves, no plants, that died. Sprayed steel anti-slip grid and dried in 12 hours. Sprayed the anodized aluminum rails to preserve the color and after 4 weeks they are still tacky. The wood has a slight orange tint, but the wood grain shows excellently. I asked for clear and was sold the #9400 Australian timber oil (natural). I'd purchase again and recommend to anyone, except for the anodized aluminum.

I applied this to a pine deck that had no previous protection and was installed 3 years ago.  After cleaning the deck with a wood cleaner (and letting it dry 3 days) I applied Cabot Australian Timber Oil with a roller.  The finish looks terrible with lap marks galore.  I wish the directions would warn against the use of a roller (as the Cabot help line did).  Now my only option is to let it wear off over time and endure the terrible look, or use a stripper.  Stripping takes a lot of effort (using the recommended Cabot product) but I don't know if I can bear to look at this every day.

First time staining!

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

Bought Australian Timber Oil in Jarrah Brown and Semi-Solid stain in Cordovan Brown. Cleaned deck board and deck rails with recommended cleaner. Filled small holes and gaps with wood putty and sanded all deck boards and rails with 80 grit sand paper. Added Cordovan Brown to deck rails and posts and Jarrah Brown to top rail cap and deck boards. We love it!!!

Great Product - Need to Apply Correctly

By DIY_GUY

from Austin, TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

This is a great product if properly applied. Proper application means: (a) Surface Condition; (b) Weather; (c) Application Tools; (d) Application Process. Check out my photos. This is an IPE deck that has only been stained with Australian Timber Oil ("ATO") -- no other product has been used on this deck. While this deck looks shiny, more like a film based coating than an oil based coating, it is NOT sticky ! If you want the deck to be weather protected and not sticky, while beautiful, then you need to understand the overall process.

This deck was stained in 3 separate operations, each after a period of time for weathering to allow the surface to accept more stain. We anticipate that after building up the ATO, that future staining will be an annual process: One gallon of material was sufficient for one coating of the deck in the picture.

A. Step 1. After we installed this deck, we let it bake in the Texas sun in June through early July (about 3 weeks). The Texas sun is brutal. If you live in Oregon, this 3 week time frame may be quite a few weeks. After this fading in the Texas sun, using a sparing application of Natural ATO with a staining brush and wiping cloth.

B. Step 2, after 4 more weeks to the brutal Texas summer sun fading and aging the deck, it again got another coat of Natural ATO. This time, allowing a little more time for the ATO to soak in before wiping off.

C. Step 3, after 6 weeks more weeks of Texas sun fading and oxidizing the surface, it was given a final coat. This final coat, was 50% Natural mixed with 50% Mahogany Flame. This combination brought the IPE very close to it's original color, except with a brilliance and water resistance in the surface layer. The 3rd coat was applied with a stain pad on a stick and worked into the surface after being sprayed onto the deck with a pump up deck sprayer. The edges and trim areas were done with a brush. Wiping rags were used after each small area was well worked with the wiping pad on a stick.

We should note that after Step 2, the deck experienced heavy rains for almost 10 days after hurricane Harvey. Water pooled up nicely on the deck surface, showing the ATO was doing it's job. However, the water exposure and weeks of Texas sun had once again faded the surface -- an indication that the deck would now accept more stain.

Here's some notes on the process:

(a) Surface Condition - the wood in the deck needs to be able to uptake the product and to bond to the surface. This means weathering some due to sunlight fading and damaging the surface on a microscopic scale and the weathering due to rain.
The trick is to arrest the aging with a new application of ATO, after just enough aging takes place to allow the deck to absorb the next coat of stain.
(b) Weather - you need to plan for drying time after washing, without dew or rain; you need to apply it not in direct sunlight (early morning; in shade; etc). Then you need the sun to come out and "crosslink" and thus polymerize the surface of the ATO once the stain is applied and has been wiped clear of pools of ATO on the surface.
(c) Application Tools - brush intended for stain (not a paint brush); wiping cloths (For coat No 3, we used a stain pad on a wooden handle, along with wiping cloths).
(d) Application Process -
1. CLEANING / DRYING - We then cleaned the deck with a garden hose (not a pressure washer) and Murphy's oil soap. A deck squeegee is useful to push the excess water off. A driveway broom can be used to scrub the soapy water onto the deck. With the brutal Texas sun, 2 days of drying is sufficient. Further north, you may need another day or two.
2. APPLICATION - .here it's about applying ATO in a series of small areas, with overlapping wet edges - somewhat like painting. However, one key to avoiding a sticky mess is do not allow it to pool for long periods of time. Basically, just apply and wipe up the excess. In Step 1, wipe fairly quickly. Likewise, Step 2 is wiped with just a tad more absorption time. Step 3, we work it into the deck with the stain pad on a stick for 2-3 minutes (each time in an area of 3-4 boards x 8 feet or so), then wipe. Brush is also used in Step 3 around trim and edges.
3. ALLOWING CURING WITHOUT TRAFFIC - Let the sun cross link it good. For example, apply in the morning and then allow full sunlight to do it's thing with the deck that afternoon. The deck surface should NOT be sticky when opened for traffic.

WHAT NOT TO DO:
1.DO NOT allow ATO to pool up on the surface for many minutes.
2. DO NOT try to spread ATO on the whole deck, then come back and wipe. Do small overlapping areas and apply / wipe as you go.
3. DO NOT apply in cold or inclement weather where the ATO has no chance of cross linking (polymerizing) the linseed oil. You need to give it full sunlight (while applying it in diminished light).
4. DO NOT apply slowly in full sunlight. You are cooking up a sticky mess.
5. DO NOT apply to a deck that is not fully dry. Wiping up surface water or dew with a rag the morning of the application is not sufficient. It needs serious time in the sun to fully dry.

In the first application, we applied Natural ATO with a brush intended to stain. Since this new wood was still oil rich on the inside, we wiped the ATO off rather quickly with "wiping cloths."

Brought out all the grain and color of the deck

By Johnny

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

I was concerned about what product to use on my mahogany deck, newly recovered after decades of paint. The Australian Timber Oil in Natural shade worked perfectly by bringing out all the color and grain in the deck without putting any staining into the deck. I couldn't be happier.

Great Product

By Mary

from Undisclosed

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

Used this product on my mahogany front porch. It was easy to apply and the coverage is great. I chose the semi transparent stain, used two coats and it really highlights the grain of the wood. The only downside is the smell. It has a very strong odor of linseed oil. It's been three days now and the odor doesn't seem to be lessening much. The porch has a roof over it (but is not enclosed) which is probably the reason it still smells so strong. I hope it goes away soon as my neighbors who are attached to my house are complaining and I have to keep my windows closed and the temperature is in the high 80's. All in all as far as coverage and looks I'm happy with this product.

Algae after only one year; very disappointed

By Grabber

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

When we first bought our house 10 years ago my brother-in-law recommended Australian Timber Oil for our deck which needed staining. It held up incredibly well. Last year of course went back to Australian Timber Oil b/c of how well it held up. I read the application instructions multiple times and followed cleaning directions and now less than a year later the deck has algae anywhere it is in the shade for any substantial length of time. I am super disappointed and confused as to what happened. I did some looking online and found other people with similar praise from the past turned into utter disappointment. I read some sources saying Cabot changed the formula some years ago. So, don't bother with this product. Do some research and find one that will hold up better.

Great on siding

By Mike12345

from Anchorage, AK, United States

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

Applied this after a very labor intensive re-finish of cedar siding that had been coated with Thompsons water seal. Given the amount of work it took to restore the siding, I was nervous about the durability. So far (2 years) it is holding up very well in the Anchorage, Alaska climate and looks great. I am able to purchase the oil-formulated stain here, which I suspect is superior to the non-voc formulation based on my experiences with other products. Adequate ventilation and gloves and you will be fine.

disappointed and confused. where to go from here?

By coleaacb

from Port Orchard, WA, United States

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

Last summer I expanded my deck. In the process I replaced all the cedar on top. redesigned/replaced the stairs and all the post and rails. it was a lot of work for one guy. Then at the end of summer I sanded the patina off the new cedar and then thinking it was dry enough stained the deck with the Australian timber oil/mahogany flame. I had concerns about the green cedar that I got from my lumber that got mix with the kiln dried cedar. but the wood was dry I sanded with 80 grit then 120 grit. when I stained it was in the cool of the evening after any morning dew was long gone. I used a pad to apply the stain and a brush to spread it out and work in the stain. it looked great . but once winter came and then spring it started to peel and you can see that around the knots in the cedar the stain didn't stay. it looks like a old deck instead of a new one. The stain is flaking off the sections of kiln dried cedar and not on the sections of green cedar! I am so disappointed in the performance of the stain. and confused as to why because this isn't the first time I have used this product and gotten great results! where to go from here, the deck has to be right!

Does not do well with IPE wood !!!!

By Disappointed in Texas

from Bulverde Texas

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

Used one coat because of the thick natural of this Brazilian Hardwood . After letting it dry for 4 days I figured it was good to go ! Big mistake everywhere where I put the furniture it left it's mark . Took everything off the deck again and will give it three more days to dry . Temperatures here have been in the 90s in the days and the air dry . I spoke to the local Hardware Rep. who ran an article that stated this oil was good of this type of wood . My suggestion would be not to use on a very hardwood period. I will never veer away from Messer U.V. Plus (natural) again especially on hardwoods .

Took 3 year old deck to looking new again

By Noneya

from Midwest

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

Purchased, had product shaken at store, read directions for prep, applied per directions, and LOVE the way it looks. We used Paint-like-Stain three years ago and didn't like the look, so we pressured washed and scrubbed. Some product was too deep to remove so it stayed however the oil soaked in and added a weathered look. A modified oil based with low or no VOC and water clear-up. a great all around product.

Disappointed!

By Unhappy

from Ontario, Canada

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

The new modified (low VOC) Cabot Australian Timber oil is terrible. It does not penetrate teak and makes wooden outdoor furniture and accessories look truly awful - patchy, old and discolored. The original formula Cabot Australian Timber oil was terrific. I applied it annually and it kept my teak outdoor furniture and acacia planters and cedar trellises looking new and beautiful for seven years.

Purchased this to stain a new cedar deck. Followed all of the directions for application to the letter. Looked really nice for the first summer, but toward Fall and through the Winter, the stain has come off and the deck looks horrible. We will have to sand off anything that is left over and restain.

We treated our front and back decks last summer with this product. This spring it has already wore off most of both decks.
After spending close to $1000.00 on this product I am more than disappointed.
Sure wish they had a guarantee. Less than 6 months is just not acceptable.

Unfortunately we waited 3 yrs to apply our first coat of Timber Oil to our lake pier. The timber oil made the pier look great despite the sun ravished cracks. Each summer I put another coat of timber oil on because the sun damage is harsh. 3 years and 3 coats later it looks okay, But I am wondering what it will look like in 10 years when I have 10 annual coats of timber oil?

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

After an exhaustive search for the perfect color, I finally found Cabot's Australian Timber Oil. I used the 19400 series (tintable base) and chose the Brazilin Teak color. I applied this to my 1 year old pressure treated pine fence and could not be happier! The depth, opacity and complexity of the final color is outstanding....not to mention the ease of application and clean up with only soap and water!

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

The older product was much better. The newer choice of colors do not match the original stains I used a few years ago. The product is 'sticky' and much thicker than the original I especially liked the 'clear' oil from years ago but the new one has a yellow stain in it. Looking for alternatives now as I would not use the product again

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

ATO is very easy to apply and you can see it soak right into Mahogany. I tried it thinking, it can't be that bad. Once applied and dry, the stain simply isn't as thick as other premium stains. The durability isn't there. Rain doesn't bead up like with other brands, I don't think my full sun deck will get 1 summer out of this. The picture was taken 2 weeks after application. Spend the extra $15 a gallon on Sikkens.

Wondering what can be done. Paw Prints on the dec

By rmillard

from North Carolina, United States

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

We had the contractors who restored our deck use Australian Timber oil because we didn't want a dark stain. They used pressure treated wood. After applying, we kept everyone off it -- which meant our dogs. Once we thought it was dry we began to use the deck. Shortly after we noticed that the path the dogs use to go to a gate off of the deck was marked by clear, slightly lighter paw prints. We tried hosing them off, but that did not work. They now appear to be a permanent part of the deck. Very disappointing. Not sure if this is about the timber oil, or something else.

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

Have used many Cabot products for years. First day with Aussie timber oil. Excellant product. Mahogany porch floor with roof. Sanded and refinished (120 grit). Weathering varied from none at the front door ( milling marks still visable ) to totally cupped gray ( really weathered ). Found it best to paint the stuff on and wipe off the excess not too far behind the application ( 10 min. @ 60 degrees) for the solid wood. The weathered wood ( even after sanding ) required two flood coats and no wiping. I wonder if these particular long oil alkyds have no recoat window?

Comments about Cabot 5 Gallon Honey Teak Australian Timber Oil (05-3458):

Applied Australian timber oil to my new deck. Used JarrahBrown on the dark part of the deck and Honey Teak on the lighter colored parts. I used a brush to apply, you must be careful not to apply too much any don't leave any brush strokes. I applied a second coat after about 1 1/2 year and wasn't very pleased with the color after another coat. This is a very large deck and don't like the idea of reapplying every year. I wish there was a clear coat I could apply to keep the original color.
