Question of the Day:

Hi, I’m looking to start using oil to seal our tables we make, is this Oil water resistant and good for table tops and how long does it take to dry?


Yes our range of Oil Finishes are all very water repellant, mildew resistant and also food safe, certified as being safe to use on children’s wooden toys, and so are very suitable for table tops. As a sealant, we would recommend our Danish Oil Low VOC which has less amount of solvent resulting in a thicker formula that is easier to apply to smaller areas.

Drying time is a couple of hours under normal circumstances but may be longer in very chilly and or damp conditions.


For any other questions, drop us a line at with your questions for The WoodCare Guy.

    We have installed oak kitchen counters and ‘sealed’ them with a local white tinted linseed oil based sealant. We have done 2 coats but still finding water marks and black marks from stainless steel? The counters are new and we would really like to deal with this now and seal them naturally and to be food safe. Would we be able to use any of your products over this now and would they be sealed well for water use and food in the kitchen? We really want to avoid a varnish. Thank you.
