Rustic Worktop Oil is for indoor use and recommended for priming and oiling of untreated or sanded wooden worktops, e.g. coffee tables, dining tables etc. Also recommended as a refreshing oil for previously oiled surfaces. 

The oil adds a water- and dirt-repellent surface to the wood.

Rustic Worktop Oil has received the Danish Indoor Climate Labelling and has therefore undergone extensive emission and odour tests. This ensures that there are no chemical substances in the lacquer which adversely affect the air quality in the room.

For professional and private use.


Curing urethane oil in solvent with mild odour.

Package size: 
Clear: ¾ litre.
White, black, anthracite grey, cherry, mahogany, walnut, driftwood grey, dark coco, nordic, wild hazel: ⅜, ¾ litre.

A clear oil adds a deep, warm glow to the wood.
The colour nordic retains an untreated look on light wood species. Nordic is not recommended on dark wood species.
A coloured oil is slightly transparent and enhances the natural grain of the wood.

Risk of self-ignition:
Cloths etc. used to apply the product can self-ignite. Place used cloths in an airtight and non-flammable container (e.g. a jam jar or a metal can with a lid). Dispose of in accordance with national waste regulations.


Coverage per coat:
Light wood species such as beech, ash, oak and pine: 12-15 m² per litre.
Exotic wood species such as nyatoh and merbau: 20-30 m² per litre.

Before application: Shake/stir well before use.

Application tools: Cloth, brush, roller.

Substrate temperature: Minimum 15 °C.

Dilution: Not recommended.

Drying time at 20 °C and 50 % RH:
16-24 hours before applying the finishing coat of oil.
Ready for use 24 hours after the finishing coat of oil.
Fully cured after 72 hours.
Do not cover the surface until the oil is fully cured.

Cleaning of tools: White spirit.

Storage: Lasts for 2 years if unopened and stored at 20 °C. Once opened the oil will start to form a skin and may harden in the can.


Before you get started:
All carvings, edges and the underside of a new untreated worktop should be generously oiled before installation. This minimises the risk of warping of the worktop.

Ensure that the surface is absolutely clean, dry and free from dust, wax, grease, polish etc. Irregularities can be removed by sanding in the direction of the wood grains. Final sanding must be conducted with sandpaper grit 100-120. Vacuum sanding dust.

Moistening the surface prior to oiling is recommended. This improves oil saturation and provides a uniform appearance. Use a damp cloth and make sure that the surface is evenly and visibly wetted. Leave to dry until the surface no longer feels damp.

Priming of untreated/sanded wood:

  • Apply 2 coats of Rustic Worktop Oil "wet in wet". This is done by first applying one coat of oil.
  • Then wait up to 30 minutes and apply the second coat.
  • Make sure that the oil appears glossy/wet and spread the oil from wet to dry areas, where the oil has been absorbed.
  • After 20-30 minutes of processing, and while the oil is still wet, polish the surface with a white nylon sponge.
  • Finally, remove excess oil with a clean lint-free cloth. Be sure to wipe off all oil to obtain a uniform matt surface.
  • Areas with not absorbed dried up oil will discolour the surface.
  • Leave to dry for 16-24 hours, before applying the finishing coat of oil.


  • Sand or scour the surface carefully with a black nylon sponge and remove sanding dust.
  • Apply 2 thin coats of Rustic Worktop Oil until the surface is saturated.
  • Polish with a clean lint-free cloth until the surface feels dry.
  • Not absorbed oil must be removed within 30 minutes after application.

Please note that the natural content of resin in wood can affect the colour expression, both when oiling with a clear and a coloured oil. The reaction to resin depends on wood species, but it is particularly pronounced on softwood, e.g. pine.

Especially about coloured oils:
By long-term contact or by contact with other materials smudging from coloured oils may occur.
Surfaces primed with coloured oil can alternatively be finished with clear oil, if the colour intensity of the priming oil is considered suffient.
If the colour white or nordic is used, the surface must always be finished with the same colour. Clear oil can affect the colour intensity and create a slightly yellowing effect.

Care and maintenance: Refresh with Rustic Worktop Oil, if the surface shows sign of wear. Method as described under "Finishing".

Regular cleaning: Clean with cloth well wrung in clean water.


Before using the product, read the label on the container carefully and observe the recommended precautionary measures. See Safety Data Sheet for detailed information.
