Hi, I have just stained a set of new mahogany slats for a garden seat repair. I decided to use Sadolin One Coat (which I already had for another project). I didn’t prime or treat the wood in any way first. The results are not brilliant!.The finish looks uneven (although that’s possibly my fault) and it took an age to dry properly (24 hours plus). Reading the info. on the can (should have done this before!) I see that the product is not suitable for ‘oily’ wood, and they quote Teak plus one other exotic hardwood I’ve never heard of. Should mahogany be included in the list of ‘unsuitables’?. I’m thinking of giving the slats a gentle rub down and applying a second coat. Do you have any other suggestions?
Many thanks, Philip
