Care Guide

Caring for your solid wood furniture / timber products

Quality solid wood products are surprisingly easy to look after, and a small amount of care will extend their life considerably.

• Treat with wax polish immediately upon receipt and then every three months to protect the wood
• Blot up any spills immediately with a soft, slightly damp cloth

• Place items in areas which receive direct sunlight, as this can cause fading
• Place items directly next to heating or air conditioning vents
• Use household cleaning products intended for materials other than wood

How to Care for your Furniture

We hope you enjoy your beautiful solid wood furniture for many years! Our tables are built to last and should need minimal maintenance.

We recommend using a damp (not wet) cloth or mild cleaner to wipe the tabletops. Strong cleaners may break down the oils over time so should be avoided. Do not allow liquids to sit on the surface for periods of time.

For the first 2-3 weeks of use we recommend extra care is taken with the surface whilst the oils fully cure.

Our table bases are finished with professional quality low sheen eggshell paint. This is a durable finish which can be wiped clean.  Touch up pots for scratches are available in our online shop.

Tabletops are finished with Rubio Monocoat oil, the best selling wood finishing product in the UK. This is a breathable but fully protective finish that is very resistant to water, dirt and heat and lasts 3-5 years if not longer. It will not crack, peel or flake.

Although the hard wax oil finish is very durable do bear in mind that all wood is liable to be scratched or dented but this may simply add to the charm!

Light Antique finish tabletops are coated in a  Antique Bronze Coat.

Dark Grain finish tabletops are coated  in a Black Colour Coat.

Natural tabletops are finished with a White 5% Coat.

Sachets and different sized tins are available to purchase from various online retailers.
