What could be wrong with this railing?

last modified: last month

We have been in our home less than a year. The mahogany railing on our front porch was stained and sealed shortly before moving in. This past spring, my husband and I noticed this graying on the railing tops, and on the front edges, particularly on the side that gets more sun. We only get the early morning sun on the front part of the porch. The side of the porch gets sun until around noon in the summer, and 10:00am in the winter.

As soon as the temperature warmed up in late spring, we re-stained the railings and put another coat of sealer on them. They looked great up until this past week when we noticed them turning grayish again.

What could be causing this?

Looks OK from far away!
