    Hi guys,

    I have put a couple of pieces of Oak trim (inc window sill) in my domestic kitchen, and need to seal it.

    I see many things on the market, but unsure what to use in this environment.
    Obviously, it needs to be dry after application, so I'm worried about 'oils' that might stay sticky etc.

    Any advice please ?

    Hi,

    Others may frown, but I have used:

    On the oak window cill and veneered door to my bathroom.

    Maybe I've been lucky (some reviews are poor!), but the wood looks as good as new, after a few years.

    ...and I suppose it depends on how you use your cill?
    In my kitchen, the mugs are left to dry on it!
    You might need something tougher if that were the case! :)

    Thanks RG,
    I only used to put washing up liquid and a cup with bits'n'bobs in. It won't get a lot of actual use, unless the odd avocado seed jar !?
    I do like Ronseal as a normal varnish, but thought there would be something nicer as it's Oak.
    If not Ron Seal it will be.
    cheers

    A polyurethane varnish to give it a tough surface protection

    Everbuild woodstain is extremely tough.
    I used it on an outdoor bench 2 years ago and it still looks pristine despite being uncovered.

    Well, not after the 24-48 hours it takes to dry it's not. :rolleyes: And it's not recommended for internal use anyway for this reason and the smell.

    And it don't give the surface any protection from impact, just like most oils. The only oil that comes to mind that will give a tough surface is tung, and that will be laborious coats over many, many days - weeks even.

    Should have been specific, osmo worktop oil, dries in around 8 hours, and not oily.
    Beautiful finish.
