Rated 1 out of 5 by wwwwww from This junk is that junk I bought this product because ,I thought for the price it would be good. I cleaned my deck really good an put it on with a brush. The color we bought was Honey Teak or something like that. Because we wanted a light color like the Honey Brown we had on it. This junk is dark and some places it's red and other places it's dark brown. My deck looks aweful now. I hate the color. Wish they would give me my money back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ron1969 from Looks Fantastic initially, doesn't wear well When initially using the product, it looks just fantastic. However, it doesn't wear well and hold up - especially in higher traffic areas. I expected more out of a premium product

Rated 4 out of 5 by GM4WVU from EXCELLENT PRODUCT I applies a little over 3 gallons of Australian Timber Oil with a cheap Harbor Freight electric spray gun in about 3 hours... The coverage was GREAT and any runs were easily smoothed out with a cotton rag... Yet to be able to comment on durability because it's the first time I've used this product... So far I'm very pleased with the outcome...

Rated 2 out of 5 by John57 from Disappointing I've used Cabot Australian Timber Oil #9458 stain on my deck starting in 2008. Super durability and very satisfied. After 8 years it needed staining again. I was forced to use the same product but different chemical make up. (#19548) In 2017 I had it redone again because I had replaced some boards. Enter 2019 and it needs to be stained again! I did the required steps in prepping it every time it has been done. Not very durable! And a very disappointing product. I will offer a word of advice to others, Spraying or rolling may be quick but brushing is the best way to apply it to a deck surface especially if you have gaps between your boards.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JoMac from Use sparingly Used the expensive Cabot stain brush on the main deck, HUGE mistake! Bristles fell out with every stroke and dense brush caused horrible splotches. I am a good painter but you would never know from how the deck turned out! Used a Purdy cutting brush and foam brushes on the railings, worked out much better. Think a roller was the way to go. Ran out of stain with just 6 rails to cover. Cannot believe this product is only sold by the gallon. Color not a great match for store sample, definitely darker than intended. I would recommend this product but with caution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frannie 2112 from New Garage We had a new garage put up last fall and used the Jarrah color to stain. Beautiful. We couldn't be happier. We want to use it on our 35 year old log home to match. Is this adviseable?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nichole from Beautiful finish. I’ve been researching deck stains for a while and found this at my local Ace Hardware. They don’t stock the Pacific Redwood color on the shelf, but I had them tint a gallon for me since they had plenty of tintable stock on the shelf. Product was easy to use. I used it on a pool deck that was put up last summer and had a year to dry out. The wood absorbed the oil quite well. I’ll admit I did no prep to the wood beside getting any loose debris out of the way. So, I did the job very lazily. Had a few drips but I was more concerned with protecting the wood from the pool water, and it not turning that ugly grey and the wood rotting and splintering. This is perfect for that. One step color and water protection. It rained a few days after application and looking at how well it’s repelling water I could not be more happy with it. Plus the color looks quite nice too. I love seeing the wood grain enhanced with the stain. Makes my Modest pool deck look a bit more posh than it really is. One thing though, maybe it was the sprayer I bought. I anticipated just spraying this stain on, but it’s a bit thick for that. But I’ve seen tutorials on the net using a pump sprayer for this product. So, you get what you pay for. Buy a good pump if you want to spray on. I ended up manually applying with a brush. Those rails were a pain in the butt to paint.

Rated 1 out of 5 by richard 26 from Overpriced and a blotchy mess This was the most expensive deck stain at Ace so I assumed it was a premium product. It covered well but when it dried it was a hot mess: blotches and unevenness prevailed even though I carefully used a pad applicator as recommended. I noticed all the negative reviews in this site got the same form answer which suggests that these folks really don't care about your experience with Cabot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazing product for Redwood fence and deck I forget exactly where on the internet I came across the tip on using ATO, but thank God I did. I've used it on all of my redwood projects for last five years (including a picnic table, deck, and fencing) and it is head and shoulders above any other stain/oil I've come across. One single coat was all it took to lock in that fresh-from-the-mill on redwood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tiredofrefinishing from Doesn't hold up We loved Cabot timber oil the first time we applied it to our cedar deck, However, when it was time to refresh the application, you could tell the formula had changed. We followed the directions exactly, prepped the surface as directed with the products recommended, even sanded to make sure that all prior product was removed. The new coat didn't make a year before it started looking worn, peeling, etc. Now we are left with a large deck that has to be refinished again. I don't know anyone that has time to refinish their deck from scratch every season -a maintenance coat would be ok, but to have to strip it every year is ridiculous! It seems that according to all the other recent reviews, we aren't the only ones having the same issues!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe Pro from Tough and long lasting protection I used this product on wood deck in 2008. Stained it every 5 years. Deck is now 10 yrs old and just put new coat of Cabots on it recently. Deck looks great and water beads on it easily. Very good, no great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jactwo from Inadequate label Bought last year for new shed ramp. Couldn’t get to it so this summer waited for dry spell but when opened can product had separated and no amount of mixing re - homogenized it. No warning on label freezing ruins it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lorelei from Amazing product! Last month I needed the deck in a hurry. So we went out and got the cheapest wood possible. While the posts and the deck itself were made with pretreated wood the rails in the bumpers mermaid with the crappiest Splinter wood you could find! I knew better than to treat the railing directly with the timber oil so in the hottest weather of the year I decided to pretreat with raw linseed oil first. Keep in mind everything was new so I did know wood stripping for cleaning of any kind. I'm glad I pretreated with the raw linseed oil if anyone here is complaining that the Cabot Australian Timber oil didn't go as far as they planned the most likely their wood was very very dry and you needed to pre-treat. Now I know nobody ever says to pre-treat with another oil when using these products but if you want to save a lot of money time and product then do yourself a favor pretreat with raw linseed oil. Anyway after I pretreated I waited one day and then proceeded to put the Amber Australian Timber oil on the deck we used a combination of brushes and rollers and probably broke every rule they said to do. The deck came out amazing! I've never seen wood bead up after a rainstorm like this wood does! When it rains I literally use a squeegee to get the pooling water off! Oh and because I pretreated I only used 1/4 of a gallon on this deck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by On the Waterfront from Outstanding results Before using Australian Timber Oil, I washed the new wood then let the wood dry for two days in the California sun. Then in late evening I started to brushing the Australian Timber Oil. Took about 2 hours then dry for 24 hours. Very pleased with the outcome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robb from deceptive product title was expecting more even coverage (mine came out blotchy) with no recourse to add second coat and even out the coverage unlike tung oil and linseed oil, the akyloid oil has a "resin"? that prevents a second top coat. I'm not happy with this product. Deceptive Cover on Can, ease of use

Rated 5 out of 5 by NancyRM from Beautiful finish! I recently bought my second gallon of this product about a week ago. Used it on teak and other hardwood outdoor lawn furniture to my great satisfaction. They are now glistening with a high quality, rich luster. Could not possibly be happier with the results. Highly recommend to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gordon23 from So far so good... Trying Cabots Timber Oil for the first time on a 3 year old cedar deck. This product was recommend by our local paint store. So far so good. Will check back next season for a follow up review. Original stain, applied when wood was new, has been removed and boards have been cleaned and sanded. Tried three colors and found one we liked. The first is boards in the corner are treated with Natural, then Mahogany Flame and last, Jarrah Brown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gabby grill from Great Product I re-finished a deck that was dark grey and black from mold, dirt and neglect. I scrubbed it clean so it looked like wood again and applied Cabots Australian Timber Oil Jarrah Brown to the floor, seats and top plate on rail, I painted the rail slats to match house color. This was in 2011 yikes today I have started scrubbing the deck and will re- apply the same stain again, it probably should have been done a bit sooner but it has been 7 yrs. and this deck was not in great shape to begin with but I really think ATO saved my deck.. The photo is of it being washed and how it looked after over 7 yrs of Iowa weather. It will look new when I'm done again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Big John from Product Question Hi Cabot... I have used your product before and am satisfied with the results. Does the product allow for thinning with mineral spirits or other thinner. I would like to be able to spray the Timber Oil and remove the excess with a roller. Thoughts

Rated 1 out of 5 by Marny from Disappointed I used this product for years and it was wonderful - water beaded perfectly and lasted 2-3 years, but they must have changed the formula. The last two times I used it, it's only good for one season. I now have to find some other stain. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by davldL from First time staining! Bought Australian Timber Oil in Jarrah Brown and Semi-Solid stain in Cordovan Brown. Cleaned deck board and deck rails with recommended cleaner. Filled small holes and gaps with wood putty and sanded all deck boards and rails with 80 grit sand paper. Added Cordovan Brown to deck rails and posts and Jarrah Brown to top rail cap and deck boards. We love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DIY_GUY from Great Product - Need to Apply Correctly This is a great product if properly applied. Proper application means: (a) Surface Condition; (b) Weather; (c) Application Tools; (d) Application Process. Check out my photos. This is an IPE deck that has only been stained with Australian Timber Oil ("ATO") -- no other product has been used on this deck. While this deck looks shiny, more like a film based coating than an oil based coating, it is NOT sticky ! If you want the deck to be weather protected and not sticky, while beautiful, then you need to understand the overall process. This deck was stained in 3 separate operations, each after a period of time for weathering to allow the surface to accept more stain. We anticipate that after building up the ATO, that future staining will be an annual process: One gallon of material was sufficient for one coating of the deck in the picture. A. Step 1. After we installed this deck, we let it bake in the Texas sun in June through early July (about 3 weeks). The Texas sun is brutal. If you live in Oregon, this 3 week time frame may be quite a few weeks. After this fading in the Texas sun, using a sparing application of Natural ATO with a staining brush and wiping cloth. B. Step 2, after 4 more weeks to the brutal Texas summer sun fading and aging the deck, it again got another coat of Natural ATO. This time, allowing a little more time for the ATO to soak in before wiping off. C. Step 3, after 6 weeks more weeks of Texas sun fading and oxidizing the surface, it was given a final coat. This final coat, was 50% Natural mixed with 50% Mahogany Flame. This combination brought the IPE very close to it's original color, except with a brilliance and water resistance in the surface layer. The 3rd coat was applied with a stain pad on a stick and worked into the surface after being sprayed onto the deck with a pump up deck sprayer. The edges and trim areas were done with a brush. Wiping rags were used after each small area was well worked with the wiping pad on a stick. We should note that after Step 2, the deck experienced heavy rains for almost 10 days after hurricane Harvey. Water pooled up nicely on the deck surface, showing the ATO was doing it's job. However, the water exposure and weeks of Texas sun had once again faded the surface -- an indication that the deck would now accept more stain. Here's some notes on the process: (a) Surface Condition - the wood in the deck needs to be able to uptake the product and to bond to the surface. This means weathering some due to sunlight fading and damaging the surface on a microscopic scale and the weathering due to rain. The trick is to arrest the aging with a new application of ATO, after just enough aging takes place to allow the deck to absorb the next coat of stain. (b) Weather - you need to plan for drying time after washing, without dew or rain; you need to apply it not in direct sunlight (early morning; in shade; etc). Then you need the sun to come out and "crosslink" and thus polymerize the surface of the ATO once the stain is applied and has been wiped clear of pools of ATO on the surface. (c) Application Tools - brush intended for stain (not a paint brush); wiping cloths (For coat No 3, we used a stain pad on a wooden handle, along with wiping cloths). (d) Application Process - 1. CLEANING / DRYING - We then cleaned the deck with a garden hose (not a pressure washer) and Murphy's oil soap. A deck squeegee is useful to push the excess water off. A driveway broom can be used to scrub the soapy water onto the deck. With the brutal Texas sun, 2 days of drying is sufficient. Further north, you may need another day or two. 2. APPLICATION - .here it's about applying ATO in a series of small areas, with overlapping wet edges - somewhat like painting. However, one key to avoiding a sticky mess is do not allow it to pool for long periods of time. Basically, just apply and wipe up the excess. In Step 1, wipe fairly quickly. Likewise, Step 2 is wiped with just a tad more absorption time. Step 3, we work it into the deck with the stain pad on a stick for 2-3 minutes (each time in an area of 3-4 boards x 8 feet or so), then wipe. Brush is also used in Step 3 around trim and edges. 3. ALLOWING CURING WITHOUT TRAFFIC - Let the sun cross link it good. For example, apply in the morning and then allow full sunlight to do it's thing with the deck that afternoon. The deck surface should NOT be sticky when opened for traffic. WHAT NOT TO DO: 1.DO NOT allow ATO to pool up on the surface for many minutes. 2. DO NOT try to spread ATO on the whole deck, then come back and wipe. Do small overlapping areas and apply / wipe as you go. 3. DO NOT apply in cold or inclement weather where the ATO has no chance of cross linking (polymerizing) the linseed oil. You need to give it full sunlight (while applying it in diminished light). 4. DO NOT apply slowly in full sunlight. You are cooking up a sticky mess. 5. DO NOT apply to a deck that is not fully dry. Wiping up surface water or dew with a rag the morning of the application is not sufficient. It needs serious time in the sun to fully dry. In the first application, we applied Natural ATO with a brush intended to stain. Since this new wood was still oil rich on the inside, we wiped the ATO off rather quickly with "wiping cloths."

Rated 5 out of 5 by Log Cabin from Brought New Life I bought this and used on my log cabin which is a business and everyone loves the color! You wouldn't believe the difference, I didn't realize how bad my building need treatment! Love it, will purchase again, made all the difference in the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnny from Brought out all the grain and color of the deck I was concerned about what product to use on my mahogany deck, newly recovered after decades of paint. The Australian Timber Oil in Natural shade worked perfectly by bringing out all the color and grain in the deck without putting any staining into the deck. I couldn't be happier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mary from Great Product Used this product on my mahogany front porch. It was easy to apply and the coverage is great. I chose the semi transparent stain, used two coats and it really highlights the grain of the wood. The only downside is the smell. It has a very strong odor of linseed oil. It's been three days now and the odor doesn't seem to be lessening much. The porch has a roof over it (but is not enclosed) which is probably the reason it still smells so strong. I hope it goes away soon as my neighbors who are attached to my house are complaining and I have to keep my windows closed and the temperature is in the high 80's. All in all as far as coverage and looks I'm happy with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Grabber from Algae after only one year; very disappointed When we first bought our house 10 years ago my brother-in-law recommended Australian Timber Oil for our deck which needed staining. It held up incredibly well. Last year of course went back to Australian Timber Oil b/c of how well it held up. I read the application instructions multiple times and followed cleaning directions and now less than a year later the deck has algae anywhere it is in the shade for any substantial length of time. I am super disappointed and confused as to what happened. I did some looking online and found other people with similar praise from the past turned into utter disappointment. I read some sources saying Cabot changed the formula some years ago. So, don't bother with this product. Do some research and find one that will hold up better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike12345 from Great on siding Applied this after a very labor intensive re-finish of cedar siding that had been coated with Thompsons water seal. Given the amount of work it took to restore the siding, I was nervous about the durability. So far (2 years) it is holding up very well in the Anchorage, Alaska climate and looks great. I am able to purchase the oil-formulated stain here, which I suspect is superior to the non-voc formulation based on my experiences with other products. Adequate ventilation and gloves and you will be fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by coleaacb from disappointed and confused. where to go from here? Last summer I expanded my deck. In the process I replaced all the cedar on top. redesigned/replaced the stairs and all the post and rails. it was a lot of work for one guy. Then at the end of summer I sanded the patina off the new cedar and then thinking it was dry enough stained the deck with the Australian timber oil/mahogany flame. I had concerns about the green cedar that I got from my lumber that got mix with the kiln dried cedar. but the wood was dry I sanded with 80 grit then 120 grit. when I stained it was in the cool of the evening after any morning dew was long gone. I used a pad to apply the stain and a brush to spread it out and work in the stain. it looked great . but once winter came and then spring it started to peel and you can see that around the knots in the cedar the stain didn't stay. it looks like a old deck instead of a new one. The stain is flaking off the sections of kiln dried cedar and not on the sections of green cedar! I am so disappointed in the performance of the stain. and confused as to why because this isn't the first time I have used this product and gotten great results! where to go from here, the deck has to be right!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed in Texas from Does not do well with IPE wood !!!! Used one coat because of the thick natural of this Brazilian Hardwood . After letting it dry for 4 days I figured it was good to go ! Big mistake everywhere where I put the furniture it left it's mark . Took everything off the deck again and will give it three more days to dry . Temperatures here have been in the 90s in the days and the air dry . I spoke to the local Hardware Rep. who ran an article that stated this oil was good of this type of wood . My suggestion would be not to use on a very hardwood period. I will never veer away from Messer U.V. Plus (natural) again especially on hardwoods .
