    10 year old iroko, in need of a bit of TLC. Planning to rub down and re oil the whole lot, but is there anything I can do to make the discoloured area around the tap a bit less noticeable? Thanks for any advice...

    Thanks. Can’t get the tap off without a lot of hassle so may not be able to.
    Reckon the wood is unrepairable then? I’d be happy with even a slight improvement, I know it’s never going to be perfect.

    Looks pretty stained to me, sometimes a hot clothes iron used with a sheet of cotton fabric under it can often remove ring water stains from table tops might be worth a try if you can get something at a similar temperature (like an old style non electric soldering iron) in there.
    Have you tried Googling removing water stains from wood?

    Could be a build up of limescale around taps so my need descaling before any sanding .

    Thanks. I'm planning on re-sanding and oiling the whole lot, but I'll clean any surface limescale off first. Hoping that once I'm done, those marks will be less noticeable.
