The SKOTTSBERG® wooden boards were treated with two coatings of thinned or non-diluted Tung oil at the sawmill. This Tung oil has been deeply absorbed into the wood, so you can use the serving boards immediately.
If you would like to give your serving board an extra protective layer after frequent use, then follow the next steps:
Lightly sand the surface, make it completely dust-free and rub the Tung oil onto the board with a lint-free cloth.
After about fifteen minutes, remove the excess oil and repeat this again after an hour.
The board will need between a few hours to a maximum of a day to dry completely.
When the board no longer feels sticky, you can apply the next layer or start using the serving board again.
Tung oil is best stored in a dark place and make sure to always close the bottle tightly. Oxygen causes the oil to dry out.
SKOTTSBERG® Tung oil is a durable, 100% pure, natural oil
Tung oil is a drying oil that soaks into the wood. Tung oil does not discolour the wood, is food safe, and is water repellent after drying. That makes Tung oil the best natural finish in existence for wood. It makes your wood livelier and gives it a very nice matt to silky gloss finish.
Tung oil is not suitable for consumption. If the oil is cloudy, let it reach room temperature and shake it before use. Cloths containing Tung oil can get heated and even catch fire. Therefore, store them in – for example – a sealed can under water, or first spread out the cloths and let them dry.
