Linseed oil gives poor protection as a finish so personally I wouldnt use that

and teak oil is basically a marketting plot and a mislabled product

the teak oil could be one of 3 things

mineral oil, which wont cure

a mixture of wax and mineral oil which wont cure

and a mixture of linseed oil and varnish which will cure.

What is the brand of teak oil?

The 'teak oils' sold by watco and behlen are likely to be an oil / varnish blend, and if it says 'petroleum distillate as an ingredient its also likely to be an oil varnish blend.

Also, I think linseed oil needs to be 100% pure in order for it to do it's job properly... or something like that... LP knows about this stuff.
