Need help finishing wood kitchen worktops?
Hardwood worktops are incredibly popular, oak in particular being very fashionable. Regardless of the finish used however, the structure of oak as a timber can cause problems. Large open pores can trap moisture resulting in dark markings caused by the tannin when the oak reacts with water, perhaps around a sink. These marks can be removed using oxalic acid if this happens but the finish will have to be removed first.
Many of our customers have had great success finishing worktops with Finney’s Microporous Hardwax Oil – the high wax content of this product giving a silky smooth finish. It is available in either matt or satin sheens and is both hardwearing and easy to repair. Hardwax oils in general offer more protection than traditional Danish Oil but bear in mind that quality can vary.
