Concave top wooden driveway gate - Croft C3Oil

Teak oil is the best finish for Iroko. This will initially turn the wood darker but will fade in time. If left will eventually turn grey therefore oiling needs to be re applied quite frequently dependent on climatic conditions.

Oils can also be used successfully on Oak.
