From time to time treat the timber with a beeswax polish using a soft cloth, which you should then buff off using a soft lint-free cloth. Always work in the direction of the grain and do not use silicon based sprays or polish.

Please do not place anything hot or wet directly on the wood as staining may occur, always use a coaster or mat. Any spills should be wiped off immediately with a dry cloth.

If the wood becomes marked it can be restored with care by rubbing down with fine wire wool in the direction of the grain and then finishing with beeswax.

Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight and heat. This will protect the wood from fading and help avoid movement and cracking.
