About this deal

To confuse my little mind even more I asked Liberon which of their products they'd recommend using on BLO to shine it up. I did so much reading on the proper techniques for the look I wanted and thought I did this all correctly but apparently It is not completely done.

Unlike Osmo, with Danish Oil, you want to have oil sitting on the surface of the worktop before you wipe off all the excess.I haven't tried this but she said to place a piece of clean, dry cloth over the area and run an iron, at a very low temperature setting, over the area. When keeping the natural look of wood, we love using Danish oil as it brings out the grain pattern and adds depth while keeping a natural, open-grained finish. For a sideboard that'll just sit there and look pretty just a couple of days would usually be sufficient. Just bought a load of doors and the instructions say not to oil them as it could de laminate the veneer.

I also know after I'm done applying that I'll have to let it cure for a few days so the oil doesn't leach into my leather watchbands. Hopefully others will weigh in on this but I think the cloudy areas indicate a tiny bit of water under the finish which adheres as a very thin coat like fogged glass on the underside of the finish. This protects and enhances the natural beauty of your wood and does not leave a surface film that can chip or scratch with use. But the finish's success depends on the application's quality, the Danish oil used, and the type of oak.Care should be taken when using wire wool on oak, as any fibres left behind can react with the wood causing staining. A foam backed, De-nibbing Pad removes "nibs" and imperfections in finishes and should be used in between coats of the Danish Oil, and when you have applied the final coat to create a super smooth finish. The idea of this method is to keep the wood surface’wet’ with Danish Oil for at least an hour until it has fully absorbed enough oil to provide a natural protective coating from deep within the wood.

Any finish is only ever going to be as good as the surface beneath, so a bit of prep work is almost always going to be necessary to get the best results. Glad I did, very disappointed with the results, it's made everything way too dark, the previous red bubinga looks like a dull brown.We use it on our teak dining table, our teak sideboard, and our new pine console table, and we even used it to patch our oiled floors (although I recommend using a specific floor oil if you’ll be oiling your whole floor). Using a foam brush, apply the first layer of Danish oil to the wood's surface, going with the grain. If this doesn't work then wiping on a fresh coat of finish and buffing it off should do the trick (tip: don't just wipe away the excess, wipe hard, buffing the surface well for a good 5-10 minutes). It is easy to apply, has an attractive ‘natural’ low sheen finish and excellent long-term protective properties. Danish Oil is completely non-toxic and food safe when dry which means in can be used on all oak items and in all environments.
