Tung Oil??


Plan to finish a patio bar top with tung oil. Top is made from a solid core exterior door. Want to paint and gold leaf a logo on the bar top. Not sure if tung oil will go over this without a problem. Hoping some knows if this is possible.

Why? Seems like about the worst choice.

Tung Oil, outside? I wouldn't recommend it.

It will look great. For a few weeks. If you want a protective oil, use something like Penofin.

Don't bother with oil. Use a sealer like a marine spar varnish. Oil is generally used when you want to show off the grain of a nice piece of wood.
If the door happens to have some nice grain use a coat of something easier like Waterlox Original to pop the grain and seal it and then top coat with the varnish. It will look nice without the work of oil with much better protection. Be sure to let the Waterlox cure before sealing. A day is probably not enough but check the label for recommended curing time.
