Specific Product Care Details
To care for your products, follow the guidelines below:
All our chairs have an oil finish. Our chairs do just as good outdoors
as they do indoors! The only care you may wish to give them is to
put a thin coat of linseed oil on them about every 4 to 6 months.
Cooking oil, teak oil, or any type of furniture oil will work just
fine. Mahogany, like most woods, will oxidize over time and turn
that lovely "aged-red Mahogany" color. If they are left
outside for several years without putting any oil on them, they'll
turn a lovely silver-grey!
All our cutting boards have a wax finish on them. Wax helps to keep
the color of the woods true. All our chopping boards, even though
they have a beautiful "show-type" finish, are constructed
to be used daily! We reccommend that you just wash it when you're
done (not reccommended to submerse it for long periods of time),
let it dry then wipe on a thin coat of cooking oil. After a year
or so of heavy daily use (like we use in our kitchens at
Place Guest House and Black
Rock Lodge), simply re-finish it with sandpaper and a
thin coat of oil when you're done.
Bowls and Vases:
All our bowls and vases have a wax finish on them. Wax helps to
keep the color of the woods true. Even though they have a beautiful
"show-type" finish, the bowls can be used for salads and
soups! We reccommend that you just wash them when you're done (not
reccommended to submerse them for long periods of time), let them
dry then wipe on a thin coat of cooking oil.
Other waxed items:
Simply buff items with a clean soft cloth to regain their shine.
A thin coat of wax every 4 months or so, depending on use, will
keep your items beautiful.
Items which have a polyurethane
finish do not need any care what-so-ever. If the finish becomes
scratched, simply wax and buff to make the scratch disappear.
