All wooden objects need a little love over time. If you notice your piece is looking a little dull and could use a facial, lightly buff the surface with a 1500 grit sanding sponge, sanding with the grain direction. Next using a cloth, wipe flax, mineral, or coconut oil on the piece until saturated, then buff off excess. avoid using olive oil, corn oil, and sunflower oil since these can go rancid over time and should never be used to maintain woodworking.
