Skagerak is a Danish design company with roots deeply grounded in Scandinavian design and tradition for good craftsmanship. We are owned by Jesper and Vibeke Panduro, who live with their two children in the Northern harbour city of Aalborg. This is where Skagerak was founded too, back in 1976, when the first dreams of making long-lasting design took form.
Skagerak [ˈsɡæjɐʁaɡ] can be a little hard to pronounce; so allow us to explain what it means. From the northern tip of Denmark runs a strait connecting our little country with our Scandinavian neighbors: Sweden and Norway. That strait is called Skagerrak (with two Rs) – and historically it’s been a crucial factor in developing the Nordic region.
TAKING CARE OF THIS PRODUCT
Oil Treated Oak Veneer table top
Oak with the botanical name Quercus spp. grows in most temperate zones. Skagerak oak comes from European forests.
Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood. Furthermore, the Skagerak oak is FSC 100 % certified or FSC Mix certified. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is done by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production. Oak contains tannins which reduces bacterial growth in the wood.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Your new product comes with an oil treatment. For daily cleaning, use a damp cloth firmly wrung and be sure always to treat the entire surface evenly. The use of cleaning agents for daily cleaning is not recommended. Spills are to be removed immediately to minimize risk of lasting spots.
Oil treated products are to be retreated 1-2 times per year, depending on the use, to keep the protective layer on the surface and maintain the aesthetic qualities from the oil. For future treatment, use a suitable oil treatment product and follow the enclosed instructions carefully. Oil treatments can be purchased on Skagerak.dk. Avoid contact of the oil with other materials to avoid spots and marks.
When retreating the surface, we recommend proceeding with consideration of the Oak Veneer on the table top. The first time the table is treated some of the wood fibres may rise and make the surface feel rough. If necessary lightly sand the surface with 220 grit sanding paper in the direction of the grain to achieve the best result.
Lastly, you should remember to retighten the table’s mounting bolts from time to time.
Note: Always use table mats or trivets when placing hot objects such as pots, pans and candle lights the table.
