Caring for your timber furniture

Natural timber provides a wonderful diversity in woods, sometimes even within the same species. Due to the natural variations in wood grain and porosity, the stain you choose may vary in colour intensity or shading from one piece of wood to the next on your furniture. These variations are considered normal, a natural unique feature of the furniture piece and within normal industry standards.

As with most wood products there will be some slight variation in colour, the wood texture, and finish colour. This is mainly due to the underlying natural wood tones, which the translucent oil is applied over, creating a truly unique, one-of-a-kind, piece of furniture. Products could have visible marks from tools used, patches from small repairs, knot holes, and natural timber inclusions. These are general features of natural wood products and are not usually considered flaws of the furniture piece.

To keep your timber furniture in good condition follow these instructions:

Do's

  • Wipe with a clean damp cloth to remove surface dust.
  • Wipe gently with a soft dry cloth in the direction of the grain, never in a circular motion.
  • Always protect timber from hot surfaces with placemats.
  • Spillages, especially alcohol, must be wiped off immediately with a damp cloth.

Don'ts

  • Do not expose timber to direct sunlight or extremes of humidity.
  • Do not conceal the tops of your furniture with glass covers. This can result in sweating of timber and peeling of stain may occur.
  • Do not use general household cleaning products that contain silicones.
  • Do not allow hot or cold abrasive items to come into contact with surfaces.
  • Do not allow liquid or damp cloths to remain in contact with timber surfaces.
