Hi
I bought a picnic bench last summer, it was untreated and I applied Teak oil from wilko. It seems it didn't do a good job as the state on the bench can be seen in the 2 pics.
What's the best way to restore the bench? what grit sand paper to start from and up to what fine grit? Which stain shall I apply?
I have Makita belt sander and Bosch 1/3 sheet sander plus elbow grease sander.
Thanks

Why bother? Furniture like that is (a) not expensive if untreated, that's why you bought it, and (b) all outdoor furniture weathers, that's part of its "charm". Let it go on for a year or two then buy a new one.

There is no need to sand it unless it needs to be cleaned. Just apply 3 coats of treatment. And then retreat every year.

Teak oiled furniture will weather and grey if left outside, nothing to worry about there. Just re-treat as you did before. No need to sand unless any bits are rough or splintery.

I sanded the bench using 40 grit A3 sander, pics attached, the gold color when water washed, I sanded wherever the machine can reach. Do I need to do more?
What product shall I use for finishing?

I used cuprinol garden furniture stain and the result was very good, see pic.
The sanded areas took the stain well and looks better.
