The wood must be clean, smooth, dry and free from wax, dust and contaminants. Some hardwoods such as Iroko and Teak are naturally oily woods and this should be removed by scrubbing with white spirit, then wipe away whilst still wet with clean rags. Existing paint and varnishes should be removed with Varnish Stripper. Bare wood may be dyed before coating with Rustin’s Wood Dye.
Apply liberally with a clean rag or brush and wipe off the surplus oil after a few minutes. On exterior wood, the first coat should be applied liberally with a brush and allowed to dry without
wiping. Nibs may be removed from the final coat by applying the oil with a scouring pad, rubbing in the direction of the grain, then wiping away the surplus with clean rags.
