Solid Wood Furniture

Many people ask what wood finish for their solid wood furniture is best suited. We would like to inform you about the different possibilities of solid wood furniture for your situation.

Untreated wood is beautiful but not practical. Moisture and dirt in the pores pull the wood, causing stains. Wood should be treated with care. Sharp, hot or humid objects may damage the timber surface. Spilled liquids should be instantly removed to avoid staining. The use of 'aggressive' cleaning agents and certainly abrasives is not recommended. Many stains can be prevented by using coasters. Remove the stain timely way and thus shortens the reaction time of the stain. If you want to keep your long beautiful fine furniture, or wood protection is required. You can choose from oil, soap, wax, lacquer or stain.
Leaching from wood is a special treatment that provides lasting protection against fading caused by sunlight. Lye gives no protection against dirt and moisture but is only meant to influence the color of the wood. After treatment with lye, timber should always be followed treatment with oil, soap, wax, lacquer or stain.
There is not any finish that is most beautiful and best for your solid wood furniture. It all depends on your personal preferences.


Lak is the oldest form of wood protection. A hard protective layer is applied to the solid wood. Lak is today in many variants (matt lacquer, satin, high gloss) and available in all colors.
Paint is somewhat prone to scratching, especially with a high gloss that is the case. Hard coatings have this less than the cheaper varieties.
A major advantage of lacquer is that unevenness or less beautiful places are covered. Very smooth surfaces are therefore possible and give a modern look.

We advise you not pour the oil directly on your solid wood furniture because there is too much oil in one place. It is advisable to create a new layer of oil at night before going to apply so it can withdraw the oil overnight. The next morning, you can rub the solid wood furniture with a clean, dry cloth.

A table in the oil can be easily sanded with fine sandpaper or steel wool and then be put back into the oil. This is the method to fix the minor damage and larger spots. Use a fine (220 grit) abrasive paper and abrasive gently in the length of the wood direction.
Once put into the oil, then the table can not have more of a stain. The stain does not adhere properly to the wood.
