- Woodworkers/carpenters…what to treat stairs with?
Recently bought a house with a set of untreated stairs (I think they are oak, but not sure). They were left untreated for a long time and therefore suffered at the feet of tradesmen etc which left a coat if very light scratches/dust on top. I cleaned off with meths and gave them a light sand and now we ate at the stage of treating them. We have tried (on someone’s advice) to use beeswax on a few steps but it isn’t coming out well in that it’s leaving a white residue after application & buffing and isn’t bringing out the grain very well. The photo below should hopefully show what i mean. Now we are thinking of treating it in some other way (2 part varnish or similar), anyone got any tips? I did treat an oak sleeper table I built with Danish oil but not sure about using it in this situation. Any help much appreciated!?
Oh yeah and anyone know how to clean beeswax from lint free cloths?
