Ensure the surface is clean and dry before application.
Apply onto a lint free cotton cloth and wipe over the wooden surface following the direction of the grain, leave for 20 minutes and wipe off any surplus oil with the same cloth.
Leave for 24 hours for the oil to dry and apply a second coat wiping off any excess after 20 minutes.
The surface can be gently rubbed with fine steel wool in between coats to improve final results.
Apply a final coat of oil and leave for 48 hours before use. Additional coats can be applied depending on your requirements. For maintenance, re-apply once a year or more frequently for heavily used surfaces.
