Custom woodworking forum: How to Maintain Oak Furniture
Views: 3, Replies: 0 » Jump to the end
|Maintain oak furniture by treating it periodically with special furniture oil. Once a month is sufficient to prevent cracking and to create a moisture resistant layer with regular use, but if a piece of furniture is exposed to wear and tear daily, such as a table, chair or desk, oil it once a week. If you buy a new or used piece of oak furniture and it appears dry, oil it before use to restore the wood's sheen and protect it.
Avoid putting hot items such as dishes or pans directly on the wood. Instead, use place mats or table mats with felt backs.
Avoid putting oak furniture outside. Unless specifically designed for outside use, oak furniture should always be used inside.
