Just had new kitchen fitted with oak worktop which the fitter has sanded and oiled for us. It looks quite streaky the way he has done it - is that usually the case? I'm not using the kitchen at the moment as there is other stuff happening at the house too so we're not living there. I've only seen it briefly and come away feeling irritated (exhausted, fed up of house not being finished and 38 weeks pregnant!) so im hoping it's just a case of it needing a wipe over and it'll even it out.
Any oak worktop experts out there who can advise? Thanks
You need to do several very light coats with wire wool in between to get the best finish its a slow laborious process but if you cut corners oak really marks and stains quite quickly although the beauty is it can be refinished at any time
