I just moved into a first-floor apartment with a small wood deck in the front, and just last week I applied two layers of teak oil coating. Before that, I cleaned and brushed it with a special wood deck cleaner liquid.

Once the oil was absorbed by the wood, I realized that some parts of the deck look a bit cracked, and it seems that the oil was not absorbed at those area.

Is there anything that I can do to fix these cracks?

    I see normal deck wood. It's going to have small "cracks" and crevices. What about them bothers you? Is it rough on your feet? – JPhi1618 Oct 19 '15 at 16:05
  • First it's the color that bothers me, and also as you said it's rough on the feet. But if it looks normal, then I can let it be. – dresden Oct 20 '15 at 7:57
  • If the color bothers you, can you use a deck stain rather than a clear oil? They have natural looking semi-transparent stains. – JPhi1618 Oct 20 '15 at 12:57
