STAIN OPTIONS FOR OAK

When it comes to stains we've got options! We have selected our favourite waxes, oils and stains. If you need further advice on staining please get in touch!

WAXES

All of our waxes are made from a natural mix of Beeswax and Carnauba.
These stunning colours are worked into the wood, revealing the natural characteristics of the grain, then gently buffed to a semi sheen. 

 
 

1. Light Wax, 2. Medium Brown Wax, 3. Dark Oak Wax, 4. Rugger Brown Wax, 5. Jacobean Wax


OILS + STAINS

If you're ordering a dining table, desk, or for a commercial project we would recommend a more hard wearing oil finish. These are top quality finishes, and are more resistant to heat and water damage. Just let us know if you'd like an oil finish on your Konk! and we can add it to your quote. The darker 2 options below are wood stains, which give a more dramatic look, and are finished with a clear wax.

 
 

1. Clear Oil, 2. Belgium Grey Oil*, 3. American Oil, 4. Whiskey Oil, 5. Dark Oak Oil, 6. Mahogany Wood Stain, 7. Terra Oil, 8. Medium Oak Oil, 9. Wenge Wood Stain  
*previously know as Graphite Oil

Please note: These colours may differ from screen to screen, we would recommend ordering a sample pack.

SAMPLE PACK

 

If you still can't decide, you could order our sample pack. You can choose 6 samples from our selections above, and try them out in your surroundings. We'll take the cost of the pack back off when you order and it comes in a really nice envelope (for those of us who appreciate the finer things in life.). 

CHARACTER Vs PRIME OAK

CHARACTER

90% of our products are made in character oak. It's beautiful, European and sustainably sourced. In our character oak you may find knots and fine cracks, and sometimes light tooling marks, it's all stuff you would expect to find in wood. We think these natural occurrences and making marks add to our products' industrial feel.

PRIME

If you're after a more polished finish, or knots and textures just aren't for you, you could go for Prime Oak - it's the same sustainably sourced, European oak, but with minimal knots, cracks and markings. Let us know if you need a super smooth finish and we can factor it into your quote.

WALNUT

Konk-Walnut-Desk-xl-01.jpg

We don't just do oak! We also have a selection of products in Black American Walnut. It's a beautiful rich wood, with swirls of warm nutty colour, it gives a super smooth finish. We sand it to a high grade and finish with Danish Oil. See our products in Walnut here.

We've also worked on projects using reclaimed pine floorboards, scaffolding, hardboards, all sorts! - so if you have something else in mind just let us know.

 

MILD STEEL

RAW MILD STEEL

For our classic industrial look. As standard our products come in raw mild steel, finished with a coat of clear lacquer. We love its natural patina and rustic look.

MATT BLACK

Give your Konk! a more slick finish with a Matt Black spray finish. It gives a more updated look, and black's always been cool.

CUSTOM COLOURS
