Topic tags/keywords: workbench danish oil roubo shaker

I’m almost done with my new workbench. 6’ long roubo/shaker style. I’m planning on finishing it with danish oil but I have never used it before. The general dimensions of the bench are 36” high, 72” long, 24” wide. The cabinets will be raised panel and approximately 48” long, 18” high, and 18” wide.

Will a pint be enough or will I need more?

Pint should be enough. I only use one coat on my bench top, too many coats will make the surface overly slick. I’d probably do at least 2-3 coats on the cabinets.

I use 2 coats. Apply it liberally, let it set for a few minutes then wipe it tight. Wait at least 24 hours, longer if it is cold, then second coat. Don’t apply as much for the second coat. A pint will be plenty.
