All types of natural wood are very easy to clean. Due to the smooth surface of the wood it is very resistant to dust and dirt and can simply be wiped clean with a damp cloth. Never mind which type of wood you choose, please never use any abrasive cleaners or scouring agents.
Important: Never dry wet wood quickly on a radiator or any other heat source, as this may cause cracking. Do not treat the wood with any oils or waxes.
Stone pine wood: If the stone pine wood, for any reason whatsoever, ever develop spots, use a piece of fine sandpaper to carefully sand it down. This will restore it to its former beauty and it will smell as good as when it was fresh from the workshop. Natural wood must never be washed in the dishwasher!
Colour and surface structure: It is perfectly normal for the wood’s natural light colour to darken slightly with age. Since we treat our natural timbers with care and work with the wood as nature let it grow, you may find inconsistencies in the surface structure, because even within the same piece of timber there are slight differences in the grain, structure and colour.
We would also like to point out that stone pine wood is a very soft wood. Improper treatment, such as cutting or hammering on it, should be avoided, as this may result in unsightly cut or pressure marks.
