General Care: CH410 and CH411

Peter’s table and Peter’s chair are made of untreated solid beech wood. The beechwood becomes beautifully patinated over time but, as it is untreated, it is particularly susceptible to dirt and stains.

If a more dirt repellent surface is wanted, we recommend giving the furniture a soap treatment before using it. To preserve the dirt repellent surface, the furniture must be subsequently retreated periodically.

It is recommended to clean and sand soiled furniture before any soap treatment. For the best results, stains and spots should be completely removed before retreating the furniture. Use 180 grade sandpaper on all surfaces and edges when sanding. Always sand in the longitudinal direction of the wood grain.


Soap treatment of Peter’s table/chair (new furniture/sanded furniture)

  1. Separate the furniture sections and apply the wood soap on all surfaces and edges.
  2. If necessary, wipe the soap residue with a clean cloth to avoid stains and position the parts in such a way that they can dry on both sides at the same time.
  3. When the furniture is dry, sand the surface quite lightly with 180 grade sandpaper to achieve a smooth surface.
  4. Repeat the treatment when necessary.
