Treatment with our satin wood oil

The treatment protects the wood surface from grease, dirt and drying out and at the same time forms a certain protective film so that direct wear of the wood is minimised. Carry out the sanding and treatment carefully to achieve a good result.


Wipe the wood surface with a wrung-out cloth so that the surface is evenly moist. This straightens the wood fibres so that the oil can penetrate the wood better. You should allow the wood to dry before applying the oil. It is important to moisten the wood surface before treatment. Otherwise the wood cannot be sufficiently saturated with oil.

Procedure for surface treatment with our satin wood oil

Apply the oil generously by hand with a white fleece and rub it in.

After 20 - 60 minutes, remove the excess oil with a clean, lint-free cotton cloth.

The intensity of this process determines the colour of the surface. If the colour is inhomogeneous or too weak, additional oil can be applied according to the principle described above.

All excess oil must be removed within the first hour after application.

The oil should harden for 36 to 48 hours. The surface should not be touched during the drying process.

Then sand the surface lightly and remove the dust thoroughly.

Then apply the oil again generously with the fleece.

After about 20 minutes, remove the excess oil with a lint-free cotton cloth.

Now allow the wooden surface to dry.

The treated surface can be used carefully after 2 - 3 days, it is fully hardened after approx. 10 - 14 days.

The hardening process of the oil takes place in combination with sunlight and oxygen from the air. The process is interrupted or stopped if the surface is covered. Use of the surface should be limited to the absolute minimum and it must not be exposed to any moisture or humidity during the hardening process. Artificial UV light can accelerate the curing process.

Risk of spontaneous combustion! Rags/papers soaked in linseed oil can easily catch fire. Store rags and papers soaked in linseed oil in an airtight metal container or immerse them in water.
