Three years ago I decided to test the Deks Olje varnish system. I thought the front porch railing on our house would be a great test subject. We live in Washington, DC and our house is facing West so you can imagine the intense sun and weather. The wood railing is preasure treated and was coated with the linseed oil varnish LeTonkinois Marine 1. This is a great varnish and held up great but it did get very dark in color after just one year. So searching for another linseed oil varnish to use I found the Deks Olje oil varnish system. Having the same process as the Le Tonkinois Marine 1 varnish the Deks Olje D1,D2 system has additional properties that help maintain the color of the wood and still perform like a traditional oil varnish. After three years there has been no change in color or deterioration of the finish. This small test is still looking great three years later!
My passion was making homes beautiful now its making boats beautiful using the best finishes possible. I’m located on the Western shore of the Chesapeake and Washington DC. No project is too small so give me a call to discuss yours.

For the LynnSea soap:
We just decided to do some spring cleaning in our TV room. We started with bookcases and pictures, and then went to windows, wooden blinds, and ceramic tiles behind wood stove, wood stove and much more. As long as I had the rag in my hand I thought I’d try the windows. Everything sparkles and smells clean. Water in the sink and a little of the LynnSea soap and that is it.
My daughter just moved into her townhouse and a lot of cleaning was done including vinyl and wood floors plus Formica and appliances. Everything cleaned up very well with the soap.
