If you’ve received a custom piece from us and are looking for more information on how to properly care for these natural wood pieces, you’ve come to the right place! Below, you can find information on the type of finish we use on our custom pieces and the products and methods we recommend to ensure that your custom piece maintains it’s beauty and durability for many years
Coasters and Cutting boards
Our coasters and cutting boards are all finished with a food grade wood butter, which is simply a combination of mineral oil and beeswax. You may find that when you first use your coasters, a ring is left from condensation on a glass or can. This is due to some residue on the surface from the finishing. A quick wipe of the coasters with a damp cloth should resolve the issue.
To clean the coasters and cutting boards, simply use a damp cloth with a gentle soap (such as Dawn) to wipe the surface. Ensure to wipe dry. Do not leave food or liquid on the surface of the wood for any length of time.
Over time, if you find the wood is becoming dry or losing it’s lustre, you may apply a food safe mineral oil/cutting board oil. If so desired, you can apply a layer of wood butter. We use Odie’s to finish our products.
Solid wood or wood and epoxy tables
Unless otherwise requested, our tables are finished with industrial grade spray finish. Both the semi-lustrous satin, and the high-gloss finish are resistant to dings and scratches.
To clean your table, you may use a damp cloth with a mild soap (be sure to wipe dry!) and to polish the table, most household polishes should be safe. We recommend Pledge moisturizing oil in amber and argan scent, which smells divine!
**AVOID USING CITRUS OR CITRUS PRODUCTS WHEN POSSIBLE**
Signs and other products with an epoxy finish
All of our outdoor signs are finished with a UV resistant, waterproof epoxy, which will prevent the wood and epoxy from fading or rotting due to moisture. The surface can be cleaned with warm water and a mild soap. Do not use abrasive materials (scrub pads) or chemical cleaners on the epoxy.
