If you want much tougher finish you can use the same system I use on the oak furniture I build. Start with clean, dry wood and lay on a heavy coat of teak oil. Let it dry for about 4 hours and had buff it off. Apply another lighter coat, let dry for at least 12 hours and hand buff it. Apply another even lighter coat, let dry another 12 and rub out with a soft cloth. If you want gloss like the original use a stick of carnuba wax which you can get at a wood working shop. Apply it to buffing wheel running on you electric drill and then to the wood. Run the buffing wheel with the wax on it until it gets quite warm to the touch. Let cool and the hand buff with a soft cloth.
