Wood is a live medium. As such it responds to our home environment with high and low humidity. Like our skin, wood appreciates oil to restore its natural balance with wear and touch and room conditions. We reccommend oiling your furniture with a high quality furniture oil once a year in the beginning and less often over time. You will notice that oiling will hydrate your furniture and restore the wood's natural beauty of color and grain, while deepening the patina that occurs with age.
We suggest using Sunnyside Linseed Oil (unboiled). It is available through online retailers
