Can I use this on birch plywood chair?
Once dry I'd like to varnish them with Yacht varnish for a high gloss finish, but presume I'll have to oil them first?
Thanks for your question. There is no requirement to apply oil before varnish, the Danish Oil is designed to be a finish in itself so normally we would not recommend it as a pre-treatment. Our advice would be to go either with a varnish or oil but not to combine the two.

Is this product food safe when dry?
I'm looking for a good product to put on chopping boards and fruit bowels.
Thanks for for question. The Danish Oil would be safe to use but from a practical point of view I would not recommend its use on chopping boards. The action of chopping would damage the dried oil and it would become unsightly, a pure vegetable oil would be a better option on the chopping boards.

Oak veneered doors and Danish oil
New house oak veneered doors.All feel & look dry, pale, untreated, rough to the touch. Worried that dirty hands, dog's brushing past etc will stain them. Should they have all had a coat of something like this & how do I tell whether they have or not?
Thanks for your question. If the doors were supplied unfinished they will require a treatment. The care/fitting instructions supplied with the doors should give you some indication of whether treatment is required or not. It is always worth checking as some veneers may react adversely to certain coatings. The Danish Oil would be a good choice provided the doors are compatible with an oil/solvent based finish.

Stain + danish oil
Is it possible to stain and danish oil after? Is danish oil good to finish some outdoor furniture?
Thanks for your question. We would only recommend the Danish Oil on bare or previously oiled wood. Danish Oil would be fine to use on hardwood outdoor furniture but as with most oils fairly frequent maintenance will be required.

Can this be used on solid oak doors?
They have not been treated and as I understand it solid doors need to be treated and protected? I don't know if a wax or oil is best.
Thanks for your question. For internal doors the Danish Oil would be a good choice and would provide a better seal that wax and give better wear protection around handles etc.
