Handle and impregnate wooden table


To treat a fine wooden table, a high quality oil is needed. Especially if it is a dining table, you should pay close attention to what the surface is impregnated. After all, something like our food falls on the table. It would be a pity if you had to dispose of it. Here we show you how to treat the wooden table.

Handle the wooden table step by step

  • Worktop Oil
  • Linseed oil specially filtered
  • brush
  • soft cotton rag
  • lacquer bowl
  • abrasive paper

1. Remove stains

If the tabletop has already been used, stains of grease or coffee may be absorbed. Mostly, these two types of stains will pull out with some whipped foam of dish soap. Add detergent with very little water to a mixing bowl and beat it with a whisk. Dab the foam on the stains. After a few minutes, you can resume the soap residue along with the stains with a soft sponge or a damp microfiber cloth.

2. Sand off the table top

Do not grind the plate until the stains have been removed and the wood has dried again. You simply need to sand a new board with fine sandpaper so that the wood is able to absorb the oil.

3. Treat plate with oil

The dry and clean table top is painted with a very soft brush with oil. It is important to always oil along the grain from one end of the table to the other end. If you apply too much oil at once, you can take it with a soft cotton cloth or even better distribute.

Tips & Tricks

Do not just use any oil to handle the table. It must be very clean and filtered to be approved for the food industry. There are special oils for countertops in the trade, which are also ideal for a wooden dining table. The second solution is a particularly pure linseed oil, which is also extra filtered for the food sector. However, with linseed oil you have to pay close attention to the quality, as there are many different linseed oil products that are not all suitable for impregnating a dining table.
