"I've never used Danish Oil before but it was recommended by the manufacturers of my (solid beech) worktops... and by a lot of other kitchen experts it seems. It's more like a varnish than an oil but MUCH easier to get a great finish. You can apply it with a rag but I used a good quality brush which worked extremely well and (I felt) was probably more economical than rags. I used 3 coats as recommended (2 on day 1 - and the third on day 2). The final coat needs 24 hours before use - it looks absolutely fabulous.
When you apply the first coat it seems you are going to use a LOT of product (especially on end-grain where it disappears instantly) but the second coat is much more economical and the third can be really thin. 500ml did a full 3 metre worktop (less a sink cutout). I treated both sides. Very pleased with the result. The product REALLY penetrates the wood and should give an extremely lasting finish. Water droplets just sit there.
"I wanted something other than varnish to protect my new garden iroko bench slats as the originals oak ones had rotted. Having read the description and the reviews I had to give it a go. Really easy to apply and used the wire wool in between coats and what a beautiful finish. I have yet to find out how it performs against the elements but do plan to buy covers for additional protection if for no other reason than to protect the appearance. It does bring the wood up beauitifully. I am however optimistic about it's ability to protect as it soaks deep into the wood, unlike varnish."
"Used this for first time on some Oak Table legs I had made as an alternative to wax. Was very pleased with the results. Follow the instructions and use a lint free cloth. Lint free car cloths 12 in a pack from ******* are good. Next time I will use fine wire wool between coats and use a dust remover before subsequent coats on furniture products. Definately a product to be tried if you have not come across it before."
"I have used to Danish Oil on a pair of hardwood gates. I made the gates some 17 years ago and for the first four years I coated them with Danish Oil twice a year. Because of ill health they then only got another coat about every two to three years. It was six years since I last coated them and they looked very poor, however with a good rub down to clear lichens etc. I have once again given them another coat of Danish Oil. They have come up like new - as good as when I first made them. Danish Oil certainly has penetrated the wood and preserved the gates despite them being out in all weathers. I certainly would recommend Danish Oil for outdoor hardwood. I know of nothing better."
"I used this on my solid oak work tops in my new kitchen about a year ago. I found it best to use old rags to apply it, then a light buff over with some wire wool between each coat. Once you have 2-3 coats on you are left with a quite hard wearing and really nice looking waterproof work surface."
"Have used this for a few years now on Yacht and household interiors. Have yet to find anything that is better quality or value for money. Very easy to use and to acheive excellent results. Just treated Mexicano Oak Doors and finish is as good as factory finish."
"I really like this stuff. It's so much easier to use than a traditional varnish for example.
I'm currently using it to treat our new meranti window surrounds. Sand the wood down with a fine sandpaper; final sand with 240 grid or higher. Use a cloth like it suggests; I started off with a brush, but that's much more messy, since it's really thin. I bought some special lint free cloths which were quite dear, but they do the trick quite nicely.
Screwfix's price is very good - about three quid cheaper than one of the main DIY chains where I saw it too."
"Nice and easy to use product. Just wipes on with a clean cloth. Three coats is usually enough. You can smooth the surface before the final coat with some fine wire wool. Gives a nice satin sheen. Does smell quite strongly, not an offensive smell though - I quite like it."
"Easy to apply and gives a nice finish, but pick a fine day as it takes a while to become touch-dry. Screwfix price was well below that of other stockists I tried. It's advertised as interior and exterior wood treatment and I've no reason to doubt its reliabilty or performance. Our fifteen year old garden hammock looks as nice as it's ever done."
