Just what I wanted
I applied the honey brown to a new pressure treated pine deck that is enclosed. I waited about a month after the deck was built and used a cleaner from home depot. Initially I was going to use a deck pad to apply the stain but wasn’t getting really good results, so I just went… to a 5 inch brush and it was great. I purchased 2 bottles but probably could have gotten away with one with my 16×14 area, I don’t have rails. I look forward to see how this holds up; it went on super easy and would recommend it to anyone that has a new deck looking for their first stain. Read more “Just what I wanted”
Looks beautiful and easy to apply
I researched extensively and have stained my deck 3 times. This soaks in to a beautiful color and stays on really well.
Good stuff – A little orange
I used this stain on pressure treated wood. I used the treated pine and it turned out a little more orange than expected. I still would recommend this oil for treated wood.
Is easy to use
This oil stain goes on as easily as they say it does and soaks in with no streaks or noticeable inconsistencies. The people who make it are very supportive and helpful if you have any questions or issues. One tip for neophytes like myself: if you are using a brush to apply it the handle… of the brush can become very slippery from the oil especially if it is plastic and you are wearing rubber gloves.

I love this stuff! I have used many brands previously and this by far is the best. I wanted to make sure the newly seasoned deck got a good first coat, so I applied it with a sponge and it looks great. I can’t wait to do the second coat in the spring with the… roller Read more “Works great”

My deck looks great!
I used Timber Oil on my deck in Vermont, which gets lots of weather! I used it originally when the deck was built 2 years ago, and it had held up great! I re-applied 2 coats this past weekend, and it looks great! It penetrates evenly, dries quickly, and 2 coats can be applied within… a short period of time. Read more “My deck looks great!”
Takes a while to be delivered!
Went on nice, not sure yet how it will hold up….. Problem: Delivery was slow!!!!!!
Third time I ordered
Other products faded quickly. This product holds up well in the Mississippi heat & humidity.
Love the Ameratto color and so easy to apply
It’s a wonderful product, performs just as advertised and holds up…
It’s my 5th year using Timber Oil on my cedar deck but my first time using the Amaretto color. It’s a wonderful product, performs just as advertised and holds up year to year. Love the Amaretto!
Came out really nice. This is pine board and batten siding.
Take your time
Delivered on the promise date, We built the pergola using western red cedar rough cut, we cut the corbels, notching and applied the timber oil before assembling. The Woodbridge brand timber oil brushed on without any problems and wiped as instructed looks great. Just finishing up the gingerbread stuff.
The stain was easy to use
I used the Western Red Cedar stain. The stain was easy to use, no over lap marks and the rich color of the stain. The product enhanced the beauty of the cedar wood that I stained.
So easy to apply
I used it to refresh my deck after the initial coat two years ago. I love the immediate penetration and protection.
Great products for ipe decks
I’ve used this product on our ipe deck since it was installed. Use the whole Woodrich system. This order was delivered as promised and in great packaging. Highly recommended.
Woodrich Stain for decks and fences
Excellent deep penetrating oil based stain. I used on weathered cedar and pressure treated wood. I used the Western Cedar which was a bit orange on application but settled down to a wonderful cedar color when dried. Coverage will depend on your wood condition.
Very good coverage.
This product is very easy to work with
This product is very easy to work with. The only thing keeping it from a 5 star rating was the color was supposed to be brown sugar and it’s more of a honey color. Very happy with how it turned out just not as dark as I thought it would be.
Applies really easy. Dried fairly quickly in weather in the mid …
Ordered Woodrich based on a recommendation of a friend. Used on a new deck, and applied using only a brush. Applies really easy. Dried fairly quickly in weather in the mid 60’s. Make sure you shake well before first use.
Outstanding oil stain for a cedar fence.
Simply amazing. I allowed my new Cedar fence to age to an ashen white before applying. When first applied the color appears very dark, but that is normal with oil. Within 3 days, the oil had nourished the wood and settled into a beautiful transparent red cedar color letting the grain of the wood shine… through. Read more “Outstanding oil stain for a cedar fence.”
It applied easily and looked good
I used this on our new cedar deck railing, stair risers, and deck cedar fascia after allowing it to age for just 1 – 2 weeks (it was mid-October, so I couldn’t give it longer). It applied easily, and looked good. It’s already lightened some in just several weeks, so it will be interesting to… see how well it holds up over the winter in IL and then full sun next summer. My only real issue with it is it does have a strong smell, and working closely for the fine work I was doing got to me after several hours at a time. Read more “It applied easily and looked good”
very good service, customer service was great
applied to a new cedar deck i built on the ocean. very good coverage, customer service was great….
No playing around
Order came in immediately along with an email as an information resource. Will definitely use this company again. Update: I did contact Woodrich and they were immediately there to help me answer questions. Critical information given to me which will save me time and money. Truly blown away by their customer service. They should get… 6 stars!!! Read more “No playing around”
Arrived in perfect condition! No dents leaks or crushed corners! Excellent product!
This works great. Highly recommend!
Great product, worth every penny.
Great product, worth every penny.
I was impressed on how easy it was to apply
I used this today on a new picnic table and 2 Adirondack chairs. Took the whole gallon as it just soaked right in. I was impressed on how easy it was to apply, no problem with going back to touch up the spots I missed, they blended right in. The finish ended up looking almost… like a satin varnish, very nice. I wish the Brown Sugar was a bit darker, but so far that is my only complaint.
I had some questions before the purchase, I emailed the company and they responded the same day. Read more “I was impressed on how easy it was to apply”
This product is (so far) better than anything I’ve used previously. Unlike deck “stains” that are really more like paint, this soaked into the wood beautifully and left a beautiful color (I used the Honey Gold). When I got it I thought it looked too reddish to provide the color I wanted, but after application… it is exactly as described – a beautiful golden hue. I went ahead and applied a second coat as my deck wad been neglected for too long, and after the first rain I found it sheds water very well. Of course, as with any product prepping the wood is key to achieving good results. Woodrich does offer products for prep, although I just used a good stiff bristle brush with a strong bleach/soap/water mix to eliminate mildew. Longevity remains to be seen, but given the initial results I expect this to hold up very well. I will absolutely use this again and would suggest its use to anyone. Read more “GOOD STUFF!!!”
Satisfied with color, great coverage, easy to apply. Good Stuff, highly recommend.
At last! Deck finishing solved!
If you’re like me, you’ve been frustrated with “modern” deck finishing products that don’t last, and require stripping and refinishing on a yearly basis. In the Pacific Northwest, decks are wet at least nine months of the year. Algae, mold, mildew, rotting leaves, torrential rain and even snow create a tough environment for a deck.… Even using the best oil-based stains, two years was the maximum before refinishing was needed. After considerable research, timber oil seemed to be a finish that had some real advantages over sealers and stains. The Woodrich Timber Oil products receive excellent marks from homeowners and commercial deck builders alike. The biggest attraction was that, once the deck had been cleaned and stripped of the previous sealer/stain and timber oiled, further stripping was not required—simply clean and re-oil when required. To decide on which Woodrich oil finish color works best for you, buy the sample color kit (https://www.amazon.com/Timber-Penetrating-Fences-Siding-Cabins/dp/B014GAJIWK/ref=lp_13190602011_1_4?srs=13190602011&ie=UTF8&qid=1502116006&sr=8-4) and apply each one to a sample of the wood you plan to oil. In order to get the proper finish, flood coat the area with the sample color and let it soak in. Once the oil has soaked in you can compare the colors and decide which one is for you. Consider waiting 24 hours before you make your final color choice. This will show the true color on your wood. We choose “Amaretto,” which gave a rich reddish-gold look to our cedar deck. Woodrich supplies the production oil in 1 and 5 gallon sizes. Any refinishing project will yield maximum results only if properly prepared. First, strip off the old finish. Woodrich has a 2-step stripping and brightening kit
(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014GF4LSQ/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=IS50S3C2JMWS1&colid=3FI9NMB6VPBEP) that come as powders you mix with water. Read the cautions on the stripper container. I’d suggest mixing it outdoors and wearing a respirator mask and rubber gloves.. The chemical powder is caustic! Apply the stripper according to the directions and pressure wash or scrub the old finish away. Stubborn areas may require additional stripper. Keep at it until all of the old finish has been removed. Rise thoroughly to make sure all old finish and stripper has been washed away. Let the deck dry until it’s damp, then use the brightener to bring the deck back to a clean “new wood” look. Allow at least 48 hours drying time. These are the best products of their type that I’ve found. At this point, replace any wood that is too far gone to be saved. Look the deck over carefully for any imperfections, stains, scratches, etc. that may have been hidden by the old finish. If needed, sand these away, either by hand, an orbital or small belt sander, or rent a deck sander from your local big box store. Our deck is a mix of 13 and 30 year old wood and really benefitted from the sanding pass. Rinse the deck to remove sawdust and apply the brightener again and allow 48 hours drying time. At this point your deck will look like it was just built. Remember, the oil is transparent and will allow the grain the show though. Any imperfections and discolored wood will also show, so make sure you’ve done a thorough prep job. The 5-gallon size comes in a handy plastic container that is easy to use. There is a single large cap, which comes with a plastic wrench for easy opening and closing. There is also an air vent with cap to make pouring easy. You’ll need to remove the air vent cap and poke a hole in the plastic before trying to pour the stain. For those of you used to wrestling with a standard 5-gallon paint bucket, this container is an enormous improvement. With the air vent and pouring cap closed tightly, shake the container for a minute or two to mix the oil. If you have more than one container of oil, mix them in another large container to insure that you have one color. If you only have a single 5 or 1 gallon container, simply pour the oil directly from the container into a pump garden sprayer. We used a somewhat fancier 2-gallon pump sprayer with changeable spray tips, an air release valve and solvent-resistant seals. Pump up to moderate pressure and test the spray pattern on scrap wood. Once you get used to the sprayer, you’re ready to go. Apply the oil when the deck is in the shade (if possible) and the temperature is moderate. Hot wood will absorb more oil, but may push oil out when it cools. If this occurs, wait a few days—it will eventually absorb all the oil. The moderate temperature is for your comfort—you don’t want to drip sweat onto the fresh oil. The temperature here in Portland was over 100F last week when we did this work. Starting at sunrise when it was only 75F was the only option. Wet down plants that might get over spray on them, and use cardboard and painter’s tape to mask off concrete and anything else that shouldn’t be oiled. Mineral spirits and a rag will remove over spray, as well as clean the sprayer and stain pad. Start with any vertical surfaces (posts, rails, planter box sides, etc) and spray on a flood coat. The idea is to saturate the area with oil. Watch as the oil is drawn into the wood. Wait until no more oil is being absorbed, then use a stain pad or rag to smooth in the excess. Don’t worry about any oil that has fallen onto the deck surface. Use a stain pad to smooth it out. You won’t have any problems with overlapping when you do the deck surface. The oil “self-blends.” This is one of the key benefits Woodrich Timber Oil has over conventional stain. Do the deck surface in sections small enough that you can reach them with the stain pad on the pole. Try to plan out your route so you don’t have to walk on fresh oil. Flood coat and wait, as before, and smooth out any excess oil. Continue until the deck is completely oiled. Another advantage of timber oil is that it can be used on new wood. The finish looks identical on the replacement wood and the older wood. You can also pre-oil the new wood before installing it, which will allow all sides to be finished. In the photos, half the wood in the stairs is new. Try and spot it—I bet you can’t. Allow 24 hours for the oil to be fully absorbed before walking on the deck. Check for any areas that may not have been fully saturated and apply more oil if desired. If there are areas that are wet with unabsorbed oil, use the stain pad with some fresh oil to smooth it out. The appearance of the deck will change subtly over a period of several days as the oil is fully absorbed. The appearance is difficult to describe—the deck seems to “glow” from within and every detail of the wood is highlighted. This 30-year old deck has never looked better. There is no “re-coat window.” If you see a spot that seems to need extra oil, apply it whenever you want. The odor is also pleasant, without a chemical smell. Timber oil is a penetrating oil, not a sealer. There is no “barrier” and water poured on it will not bead up as dramatically as with a sealer. This is normal and the wood is still being protected. Woodrich has superior customer service. They are a small family-owned business, and my email with questions was answered within minutes by Russell, the owner, who asked if he could call me. We had a very pleasant and helpful call. If you have questions, don’t be afraid to contact Woodrich. They’ll answer immediately and get you on the right track. We’re so impressed that we’ve ordered more timber oil for our side gate project. The photos show the deck before starting work (dirty and gray-even the dogs were embarrassed), after stripping, sanding and brightening, and finally after oiling. Read more “At last! Deck finishing solved!”
Very nice product!
I was just impressed with the brightener which I used before the oil…it restored an 8 year old Cumaru deck…used cedar color…sorry no time to add photo, but trust me this is really nice stuff…filled in cracks deck looks like new!
Went on easily and looks great.
The owner is really nice.
This is an amazing product! Super easy to apply and looks fantastic when complete.
Easy to apply, love the brown sugar, wood looks like Cedar on deck. Beautiful!
Buy this! You won’t be disappointed.
This product is the “BOMB”!! The three step process is easy and effective. We had a 10′ x 25′ ten year old neglected and sad looking redwood deck. After using the product, we have a deck that looks like it has been babied and well-cared for its entire existence. It’s handling the heavy amounts of… rain we’ve had this season like the wonderful product this is. This is the 4th product we’ve used on this deck and none of the others even come close to the quality of the Timber Oil. Read more “Buy this! You won’t be disappointed.”
This did a beatiful job, it’s easy to work
We used this for a newly laid Cedar deck. New cedar can be hard to stain; most stains don’t penetrate the new wood very deeply. This did a beautiful job, it’s easy to work, it penetrates well, and provides a nice even color. In an area with harsh winter, it stays looking nice for at… least two years (but starts to lose its water resistence at that point.) We reapply every two years. No need to strip; just clean and reapply. Good stuff. Read more “This did a beatiful job, it’s easy to work”
I like it.
I really like this darker color stain. It brings out the lines/pattern in the wood. And I like the container it comes in; easy pour and store.
High quality, easy to use oil finish
I used this on a new wood cedar picnic table. My method is slightly different than the instructions and the results are really great. First, I used some wood conditioner. Second, I put on a coat of finish and let it soak in longer than recommended – about 8 hours. Then I did another coat… but rubbed with 400 grit wet-dry paper while wet. I let that soak in several hours and then wiped lightly with a clean rag. Repeat times 3 and the results were really, really nice. Smooth, deep color with great protection. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of this product!! Read more “High quality, easy to use oil finish”
