Ronseal Refined Danish Oil Natural 500ml
Great natural woodfinish
Gives a great finish to bare oak doors, really enhances the grain whilst protecting the wood. Easy to apply with a brush or lint free cloth.

Time will tell
Bought this to refinish kitchen oak work tops, originally finished with Rustins Danish oil. Seems much the same and applies easily with good looking results. Only time will tell if it works better or not.
I have had to touch-up and reapply from time to time, but like the look and total repair ability over laminate tops.

Too Dark for me - Not "NATURAL
I've given an everage 3 stars as this product is probably fine for others but just not me because of the colour.
I spent two weeks sanding off a dark varnish off of our handrail and banisters (including all the bloody spindles) and got this because I expected it to give me a "natural" finish as it says on the bottle. Stupidly I coated a fair bit of the banister expecting it to tone down once it dried.....it didn't. I now have half a banister looking very similar to what I started with two weeks ago and now have more sanding to look forward to.
Yes this is partly my fault but the bottle saying Natural was misleading. I have since found out that many Danish Oils can be blends of oil, varnish , resins and driers, I wish I had known this before...Just thought you should know so know one else suffers the sanding trauma I have to revisit.

Easy to use - looks great
I've never used Danish Oil before but it was recommended by the manufacturers of my (solid beech) worktops... and by a lot of other kitchen experts it seems. It's more like a varnish than an oil but MUCH easier to get a great finish. You can apply it with a rag but I used a good quality brush which worked extremely well and (I felt) was probably more economical than rags. I used 3 coats as recommended (2 on day 1 - and the third on day 2). The final coat needs 24 hours before use - it looks absolutely fabulous.
When you apply the first coat it seems you are going to use a LOT of product (especially on end-grain where it disappears instantly) but the second coat is much more economical and the third can be really thin. 500ml did a full 3 metre worktop (less a sink cutout). I treated both sides. Very pleased with the result. The product REALLY penetrates the wood and should give an extremely lasting finish. Water droplets just sit there.
Would recommend and will use again.
