Few weeks ago, I bought a sturdy oak kitchen table (5 cm thick top).
I had to fix some parts and took the opportunity to remove the very dark varnish I didn't like.
I sanded it to 320 grid. After that I cover it with 2 coats of COLRON danish oil (Georgian medium oak color) to have a good looking not too dark. And after I added 5 or 6 coats of RONSEAL worktop oil (clear).
I was very happy with the result.
Yesterday morning, I placed a dry and thick kitchen towel on the table and put a dry mug of tea on it and had my breakfast.
When I removed the towel, I found out that all the oil was sucked from the oak where I put the mug and the towel had a brown round stains. The wood is raw and white in the same way I could strip it with an acid.
What wrong I did? Can't danish oil or worktop oil be use like that? Are they so delicate?
I really need some advices!
