Raw oak finishing – what is that?

Raw oak wood finishing is a process that preserves the wood and gives it a beautiful, natural finish. The method involves taking raw oak wood and treating it with a special mixture of oil and wax. Raw oak finishing is a long-lasting process. It takes a lot of testing to get the perfect oil that will protect oak wood while also highlighting its beautiful grain and structure. In our workshop, we apply up to 5 layers of oil and wax on oak wood. The process of oiling the wood lasts at least 2 weeks. Thanks to the patience and many oil tests, we are able to achieve the effect of natural, raw, unique and fully preserved wood, without a visible layer on it. This type of finish allows the natural color and grain of the wood to show through and preserve the wood’s raw, natural character. Raw oak finishing is often used in boho, Scandinavian and minimalistic styles and is perfect for people who like simplicity, bright colors and living according to nature.

It takes many wood samples…

…And many trials to get the ideal oil that can both protect oak wood and enhance its lovely grain and structure

Benefits of raw oak wood finishing

There are many benefits to raw oak wood finishing, including the following: 

Protection from the elements

The mixture of oil and wax penetrates the wood, providing a protective barrier against the elements. This barrier helps to keep the wood looking new and prevents it from fading or rotting. Thanks to natural oils and waxes that we use at SFD Furniture Design, the wood can breathe and the final effect looks like natural oak wood but fully preserved.

Enhanced natural grain

The oil and wax mixture used in raw oak wood finishing penetrates the grain of the wood, making it more pronounced. A raw wood finish is a perfect way to bring a boho vibe into your Home. This type of finish leaves the wood looking natural, with all its perfect imperfections on show. Boho style is all about being natural, raw and earthy and so are our tables that are beautifully finished with a raw oak effect.
