How to maintain oiled wooden furniture?

Benefits of solid wood furniture

After proper oiling, the oiled wood furniture requires little maintenance. Below is our advice, which we have developed based on our own experience and the opinions of buyers of our natural wood tables.

Oiled wood table – what substances to avoid?

The duration and condition of wood depend on its proper conservation and further regular care and maintenance. That ensures a natural process of wood ageing and emphasizes its characteristics and aesthetic values. To protect the wooden tabletop please avoid acid fluidschemicals and other corrosive aggressive substances. All acid fluids such e.g. vinegar, alcohol or lemon water can cause some damage to the wood surface. In case of such contact, please immediately wipe it off with a damp cloth and then dry it with a soft one. Other fluids which appear on the tabletop should be immediately removed. It is recommended to put dishes and vessels (glasses, etc.) on placemats. That will protect the wood from moisture and water. Dirty surfaces should be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Oil impregnation of a wooden table

Once-twice a year it is recommended to impregnate the wood surface with oil.

Impregnation method:

  1. Spread carefully the oil (hard-wax oils recommended) on the clean wooden tabletop with a cloth.
  2. Leave it for about 10-15 minutes and then wipe away excess oil using a lint-free cloth.

Q&A on oiled wooden tables

We also include some of the most common questions about oiled tables:

Q – Is the black oak finish permanent? Does it require frequent maintenance?
A – Black coloured top always has visible parts (narrow stripes) of natural wood. Over time, it will also gently wear off. On the extendable table, the differences can be more visible at the time
Q – How does oiled wood change over time? Will the colour change significantly?
A – As wood is a natural product, variations in colour and pigmentation will occur. Oiled furniture will also change appearance over time as it is affected by the environment in which it is placed.
