Before and After Using Pure&More Danish Oil
How Can I Use Your Danish Oil?
Danish oil is a popular wood finish that is made from a combination of tung oil, linseed oil and other natural oils. It is commonly used to enhance the natural beauty of wooden surface, enhance water resistance and provide protection against stains, and scratches. Here are some common uses of our premium quality danish oil:
Enhance Wooden Furniture
A high quality, clear danish oil is the ideal way to enhance a variety of wooden furniture. The oil will seep into the pores of the wood and give it a low lustre sheen which you just can’t help but admire. Use it to enhance all types of wood, from furniture items such as a chair or desk to even things like doors, cupboards and kitchen utensils.
Protect Wooden Floors from Spills
Wooden floors are susceptible to damage from foot traffic, spills and even things like over-mopping. To protect them, ensure you give wooden floors a healthy coat of danish oil. Not only will this ensure the longevity of your floors but it will also bring out their character and sheen.
Protect Trim From Wear and Tear
Danish oil is regularly used to help protect door eges and trims from regular wear and tear. Give your doors and trim a regular coat to ensure they’re protected.
Finish Musical Instruments
Our Danish oil is suitable for use in finishing the bodies of stringed instruments, such as guitars and violins, to enhance their appearance and provide protection.
Finish Kitchen Utensils
Because our Danish oil is food-safe when fully cured, it can be used to finish cutting boards and other kitchen utensils that come into contact with food.
How to Prepare Wood for Danish Oil
Preparing wood for Danish oil involves a few important steps to ensure that the finish is applied evenly and the wood is properly sealed. Here are the steps you should follow:
Sand the wood
Start by sanding the wood with a fine-grit sandpaper to remove any roughness or imperfections on the surface. Use a sanding block or an orbital sander to ensure that the sanding is even.
Clean the wood
Once the sanding is complete, use a tack cloth or a soft-bristled brush to remove any dust or debris from the surface. This is important to ensure that the oil adheres evenly to the wood.
Remove Any Mould
If your wood is bare, fresh timber, it may be contaminated with mould. After cleaning the wood, treat the piece with a mildew cleaner before applying danish oil.
Fill Any Gaps
Depending on your desired finish, you may at this stage want to fill any gaps or cracks in the wood with a suitable filler. If gaps or cracks isn’t what you’re looking for in the finished piece, fill any gaps before applying the danish oil as it will help to reduce waste.
How to Apply Danish Oil to Wood
- Apply First Coat of Danish Oil
Use a brush or lint-free cloth to apply a thin, even coat of Danish oil to the wood. Make sure to apply the oil in the direction of the grain. Let it soak in for about 15-20 minutes.
- Remove Excess Oil
After the oil has soaked in, wipe off any excess with a clean cloth. It's important to remove any excess oil to prevent the surface from becoming sticky or tacky.
- Let the First Coat Dry
Allow the first coat of Danish oil to dry for at least 24 hours, or as recommended by the manufacturer. The drying time may vary depending on the temperature and humidity.
- Apply Additional Coats
If desired, apply additional coats of Danish oil following the same process as above. Most woodworkers recommend applying 2-3 coats to achieve the desired finish. Remember to allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next.
- Finish with Fine Sandpaper
Once the final coat has dried, lightly sand the surface with fine sandpaper (220 grit or higher) to smooth out any rough spots or bubbles.
- Buff the Surface
Finally, buff the surface with a clean cloth to bring out the shine and remove any remaining residue.
How Should I Care for the Wood After Application
After applying Danish oil, it's important to follow a few aftercare steps to ensure that the finish lasts and the wood is protected:
Let the Danish Oil Cure
Danish oil takes time to fully cure and harden. Depending on the brand and conditions, it can take up to two weeks for the oil to completely cure. Avoid placing any objects on the surface or using the item until the oil is fully cured.
Ensure Wood is Cleaned Regularly
To maintain the finish and protect the wood, regularly clean the surface with a damp cloth or a mild cleaner. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasives that can damage the finish.
Apply Additional Coats
To maintain the protection and enhance the appearance of the wood, you can apply additional coats of Danish oil periodically. Follow the same process as before, allowing each coat to dry fully before applying the next.
