Herb

It has been historically, and empirically, proven that if using wine to die or treat wood that it be used sparingly or there won't be any left for the "cook"...

I once heard a very wise man say "if you think you need more, you've already used too much"...

I have long pondered using 303 Protectant on top of something like Epifanes. This is something that needs to be periodically.

If we're still talking about the exterior teak on boats, the marine spar finishes all work quite well without additional stuff. Not sure if 303 will even layer on top of Epiphanes...

I've used Epiphanes, Varathane and Man-o-war and they keep the color of the wood until they are scratched...
