Looking to protect and refresh your worktop, or chopping and charcuterie board? Follow these simple steps to prepare, protect and look after your kitchen surfaces. Whether you're opting for a light finish or want to add a bold shade to your wood, we've got you covered.

THE STAGES OF REFRESHING YOUR WORKTOP

Correct preparation of wood is crucial for an optimal protective finish. At least half of the success of colouring and protecting your wood is determined by prior preparation.

After preparation, you can start colouring and protecting wood with Rubio Monocoat's revolutionary Oil Plus 2C.

Preparing, colouring and protecting wood is one thing, but maintaining it is equally as important. You should look to regularly clean your timber surfaces within the advice for individual applications.

PREPARATION


Correct preparation of wood is crucial for an optimal protective finish. Follow the three steps below to sand, clean and prepare your wood for oiling.

Step One:

Sand the area to a 120P grit. Start with 40P grit sandpaper, then work your way through 60P, 80P, then 120P.

 

Step Two:

After sanding, pour Wood Prep onto a lint free cloth and wipe the surface. With veneered doors, it's important that the timber is not soaked, so the cloth should only be damp.

Step Three:

Ensure you have wiped the entirety of the surface and leave to dry. This should take approx. no longer than one hour.
