Look at the chart again, three coats begins to seal (+2) and I refer to six or more coats. And again, apples to oranges, I am not comparing any oil to epoxy, urethane or varnish. The discussion was the merits of adding BLO over teak oil.

I'm done, out.

The second coat of any finish doubles what is on there.

The third only increases it by 1/3, the fourth by 1/4 and so on.

Six coats is a waste of time.

It does not cover water, just humidity.
The post I mentioned says that in the second sentence.
