Waxed finishes, and all dirt and grease, should be removed with white spirit on a rag using vigorous agitation. It is easy to apply, has an attractive ‘natural’ low sheen finish and excellent long-term protective properties. The board was left at room temperature for 48 hours before it was used to allow the Danish oil to cure. I have heard also that the remedy is not to flood the surface but to use a rag and wipe away any excess. They are comprised of many different combinations of natural and synthetic varnish and resins, mineral oil, tung oil, linseed oil, poppy oil, cotton oil, sunflower oil, white spirit, naptha, driers, anti-skin agents, etc etc!

Depending on the surface you’re oiling, you may also need some super fine steel wool or a scouring pad. The construction is solely of mortice and tenon with a few dowels in non-structural areas, the glue used is polyurethane water proof. They say that the reaction between the oil and the door would be pretty much immediate and obvious, so at least the one coat we have put on so far hasn't reacted. When you apply Danish oil, it soaks into the bare wood and, when it’s dry, gives you a hard and durable finish that has a lovely soft sheen.

Also, it might darken the wood, which could be a problem if you want to keep the oak's natural color.

As a what to do now, she says a solvent based varnish would be OK to go over the danish oil but after a rub down with white spirit as per previous comments. I have read that danish oil is an acceptable finish for AWO to be left outside, so where did I go wrong, and what is the best finish other than oil? I had to dilute the first coat with white spirit (a bit like a mist coat with paint) , then two coats full strength. After the initial drying products like this cure by oxidation and while the process is sped up with the additional of metallic driers to make it more user-friendly it's still something that takes days to complete minimum, and more likely a week or more despite what the product literature might say or imply. Many pros err on the side of caution and wait a month or more, when possible, after the last coat has gone on.The way I personally look at this is to ask myself how dark a timber has to be before I stop worrying about the finish making it darker? If you want your wood to stay as close to the freshly sanded colour as poss a standard water-bourne finish is the thing to use, but these do the least to enhance figure and chatoyance (cat's eye effect) as seen in spades in Bob's boxes above.

It can bring out the wood's warm tones, and the amount of darkening depends on the type of oak and the Danish oil used. If I was doing say door trim, I would apply with a foam brush on the first side of each piece, rotate them,.Care should be taken when using wire wool on oak, as any fibres left behind can react with the wood causing staining. Always test product on a spare surface or inconspicuous area for colour, compatibility and end result. Therefore, if you want to treat your oak wood, make sure you use a product like danish oil that is compatible with oak.

Danish Oil on oak really brings out the natural look and feel of the wood, enhancing the appearance of oak, as well as protecting it and making the oak easier to clean and maintain. You would have been better off using Rustins "Garden furniture oil" This has an added UV filter and bioside and is much better for outside use, danish can be used outside but is better inside. It is also water-resistant, which preserves the wood from getting stained and reduces surface marks, making it easier to keep clean. Is the oak going black all over or just around any fixings, if the latter it's the tannin in the wood reacting with the iron in the metal, you should use brass or stainless steel on oak.

Varnished, shellaced, lacquered or heavily stained wood will usually present a surface barrier to absorption of the Danish Oil, and will need to be removed as necessary with a proprietary paint stripper. When using a cloth, use a circular or figure of eight pattern to work into the wood, and apply until the wood stops absorbing. If the wood has been treated with an oil, varnish or paint, you'll need to strip this off, or sand it off with sandpaper prior to applying the Danish Wood Oil. How did you apply the danish oil, if using it outside it is suggested that you apply with a brush and flood the surface, not removing any excess.
