  1. Reading the information about oiling a worktop, it says you have a pre-oiling service, but I cannot find that link on your website. Can you pleas advise or send me a link?

  5. Hi We moved into a house with an existing treated wood kitchen top which is quite sticky/tacky. Would you recommend we lightly sand down the surface before applying the danish oil ?

  6. Hello Paul,

    Thank you for getting in contact. We recommend before oiling any wooden worktop to sand down the entire surface to ensure the wood fully absorbs the oil and the surface is level. It is important to build up a few layers of oil as this will create a protective layer on your worktop.

    If you would like more information on how to oil a wooden worktop, please follow our specialist guide for assistance:

    If you require any additional support, please do not hesitate to get in contact. We hope you enjoy your wooden worktop!

    Kind regards,

  7. What does “if necessary” mean. How are we supposed to know if a second coat or more is “necessary”?

  8. Hi David,
    If after coating your worktops with oil it appears thin or inconsistent, then more oiling may be required. We recommend applying 1L of oil per 3m of worktop. Some timbers are naturally more absorbent than others.
    Many thanks,
    Adam @ Worktop Express
