Can anyone recommend a wood protector or preservative that will be safe for use on a new table? I've heard that teak oil is good but wanted to get some opinions before I use anything.

I'd like something that leaves a clear finish, rather than a stain. Also, is it a good idea to bring tables indoors in bad weather to prolong its life, or does that defeat the purpose of having a table?

Thanks.

Yes it does! Smile

The RSPB has some advice on bird tables here:
