Bushman Dave products are made with Australian hardwood which will naturally expand and contract with changes in humidity and temperature. Consider the placement of the furniture and try to avoid direct contact with radiators, lamps and other heat emitting items. We recommend that all products are stored indoors or under cover outdoors and should not be over exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or harsh elements.
For outdoor products, we also recommend to cover when not in use.
(INCLUDES ALL PRODUCTS EXCLUDING MINI-TRESTLE, PICNIC TRESTLE AND OUTDOOR TABLES)
We use Osmo hard wax oil which is based on natural products and penetrates deep into the wood protecting both the inside and outside. As timber is a natural product we recommend to avoid using harsh chemicals as they are designed to dissolve grease and oil and will overtime breakdown the finish. Luke warm soapy sponge or cloth is suitable, and a product such as the Osmo Spray Cleaner which contains natural oils will keep your furniture protected.
For detailed information on products finished with Osmo oil, please refer to the below maintenance schedule.
As with the oil, the best way to clean and maintain products with a lacquer finish is to wipe down with a lule warm soapy sponge or cloth and avoid using harsh chemicals.
PRODUCTS PURCHASED PRE-NOVEMBER 2020
Prior to November 2020 we used a variety of techniques to finish our products. If you purchased a piece before this date, for advice on the aftercare of your specific piece, please kindly send us a pic of your piece to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will tailor our aftercare advice accordingly.
