Old window sills need new life.

:confused:Thanks for looking. I recently bought a older home and it is taking some work. The window sills are all dried out to the point where I can feel the growth rings protruding out. Ive tried to remoisturize with lemon oil but it does not work. I've used a bottle and a half on one sill but still no effect. Is there anyone out there that can tell me what will help?

It sounds like your sills have been exposed to weather and wear due to poor finish. The softer parts of the wood wears away while the harder parts don't. Contrary to popular urban legends you can not "feed" the wood. The only option is to sand it down smooth and apply finish or replace it.
