Hi,

I am looking for a Exterior Mahogany stain and varnish all in one and can't seem to find any.
I can find woodstain or varnish, but not an all in one.

Size: 2.5 or 5 Litres
For: Summer House/Shed
I am in the UK, it that helps.

Have they renamed it or stopped making it?

Thanks,
Gaz

As ever, good advice from Colin.
Sadolin is another well known one available as Classic (thin formula) or Extra (thick formula).
Personally, I don't think much of them. Great if out of the weather and sun, but don't last long in the weather.
The only saving grace is they are much easier to use than paint.
If I had to use something like them again, I might look at a water-based stain to start with and a good clear topcoat.
I don't know if Osmo do anything for exteriors, but internally, I wouldn't use anything other than Polyx finishes, water resistant, very durable.
One of the big problems is getting anything to bond well with oily or resin-rich timber like pine. If it's well weathered it bonds well, but if it smells fresh then no
