I did our teak outdoor table the other day with a mix of cheap Wilko "teak oil" (aka diluted linseed oil) along with the dregs of last year's B&Q Diall "teak oil" (same stuff, and probably made in the same Bartoline plant in Yorkshire), and some gloops of Liberon tung oil which I've had for about 20 years, and needs using up before it polymerises in the tin.

I use a brush, and no gloves.  Clean the brush in white (mineral) spirit afterwards.

I do the oak bench with the same stuff.  Oak is weird - it's light brown when new but goes dark grey after a year or two being bleached by the sun, if "bleached" can describe something losing its colour and darkening.  The back, which never sees direct sun, has stayed light brown.
