Teak finishing question

Greetings All, What is the best way to put a natural looking finish on teak? I don't want a poly finish that sits on the surface, rather something that will soak in. Thanks, Mark

Depends.
Are we talking boat teak or Ikea teak?
If a boat, Cetol may work for you.
No suggestions for Ikea.

Wish it was for a boat..... Actually just for some bath accessories that I made out of cutoffs. I don't want a thick shiny look.

I realized that I had a can of Watco Rejuvinating Oil at work for my wood tool boxes and decided to give it a try. It's exactly the look I am after. Not glossy, and it soaks in after every coat. The teak grain really POPS after oiling.
