We treat your furniture before delivery, this should last for 12 months, it may need to be treated more often if your furniture is in a sunny aspect.
With Pine furniture we use Mylands, Morrells and Fiddes beeswax, or if asked for, we can use a Briwax finish, which are available in 400ml tins from our shop.
Oak furniture is usually finished in either a Teak or Linseed oil and again should last for 12 months before re-applying, available from our shop.
With a Varnish or Lacquer Finish you can apply a clear wax occasionally.
Place a dab of water in the dent and the cover with a damp cloth, then use a cool to medium heat iron over the cloth and the dent will magically disappear.
Then sand the top and re-stain and apply beeswax.
Not a problem just call us and we shall be pleased to undertake the repair.
If there is a dent in the surface remove wax from the area and use a coloured filler, when dry stain and re-apply wax.
With a white heat stain first use a 000 grade wire wool and lightly rub the area and then re-wax, if this doesn't remove the stain then remove the wax finish with Turpentine and sand the whole of the top, apply stain and when dry wax the top.
A careless flick of a cigarette butt can do quite a bit of damage to your wood furniture. The burn mark that remains is one that you won't likely soon forget. But that burn to your furniture is a stain that can be removed relatively easily. Make a paste of linseed oil and rottenstone (both can be found at your local home improvement store) and work it into the wood along the grain until the burn stain disappears. Wipe clean, and polish as usual.
