    What oil/varnish is best to use on an oak dining room table??? I want to keep its natural color but make it fairly hard wearing at the same time. Help anyone??

    Agreed, wax is the best. I have been using the below product on mine for years available everywhere:

    For what it is worth I have used Treatex Hard Wax Oil Ultra on my new oak kitchen work tops a few weeks ago and the results look very good.

    Two normal coats each one lightly sanded and then a third coat with hardener added. The hardener makes the top surface very hard wearing. Left over wax formed a solid lump.

    A small test area suggests it will resist most fluids and tools.

    Fiddes Hard Wax Oil. Had great results on an oak kitchen table and oak work tops. Lovely to use too.
