Had solid oak worktops installed today and looking up best oil to use only to find didn't oil both sides. Really worried it'll dry out. Any advice what to do? Did everyone else oil both sides. Can't believe capenter don't say anything! Feel really stupid now.
The cheap worktop installed in our house when it was newly built was the cheap MDF kind coated in sticky backed plastic stuff. The undersides were bare. It lasted the 10 years before we put a new kitchen in. TBH it was still fine, the cupboard doors were the things that showed the most wear.
Well our builder got a carpenter in and neither mentioned it! Not happy and our builder is ahoddy as not finished plastering wall so am really worried it will take on moisture from the wall as well. So stressful at the moment as our builder is just taking short cuts and rushing the job through. The carpenter wasn't happy they hadn't finished the plastering which is because the windows haven't arrived. Just going to have to keep fingers crossed it's all ok!
Sadly a mistake, but can you access the underneath of the built in dishwasher? Even if you have to remove the appliance. This area needs a polyurethane coat under the work surface. It needs to be protected from the steam of the dishwasher.
