We are about to install red ironbark for our decks. Any suggestions as to what to "oil" it with. We plan on coating both sides before installing. We are using an Archideck system so will have no screw holes visible, hopefully will make is quite streamlined.

Essential to oil both sides and I would still use Organoil in uv red if you want to keep the colour. If you want it to silver off, use their outdoor furniture oil. Good luck, sounds great.
