Woodoc Deep Penetrating Weatherproof Wax

Woodoc Deep Penetrating Weatherproof Wax is a maintenance product for sealed, exterior wood. It helps prolong the life of the existing protective coating. It feeds the wood, whilst at the same time cleaning and refreshing it. Apply regularly with a cloth when wood looks dry and dusty. In very dry climatic conditions apply the product more frequently and freely to all exterior wooden surfaces. This product is lead-free and nontoxic when dry.

Steps

1. Sand the wood down until smooth.

2. Wipe down the wood with a cloth that has been dampened with mineral turpentine. Leave to dry.

3. Open the Woodoc 50 and stir well with a ­flat spatula. Shake the Woodoc Stain Concentrate (Oak) well and pour into the Woodoc 50 and stir well with a flat spatula. Also stir during application.

4. Apply three coats of the tinted Woodoc 50. Allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next coat.

5. Sand lightly with fine steel wool after the first and second coats have dried. Once sanded, wipe down the surface of the wood with a clean, dry cloth to remove all dust, then wipe down the surface with a cloth dampened with mineral turpentine and allow to dry. Do not sand after the third coat has dried.

6. Screw the four castors to one of the planks. We used a 20mm piece of wood as a spacer from the edges.

7. Screw the ­flanges to the ends of each piece of threaded pipe. Flip over the plank. Using the spacer, position a ­flange at each corner and screw them in place.

8. Place a second plank on the work surface. Flip the first plank over and position the four ­ flanges on the second plank, again using the spacer. Screw in place.

9. Put the structure back upright, standing on its castors. Using the spacer, position a ­ flange at each corner and screw them in place.

10. Place the third plank on the work surface. Flip the assembled structure over and position the four flanges on the third plank, again using the spacer. Screw in place.

11. To assemble the hanging rack, screw the two 90° elbows to the 1100mm pipe and then to the two 1200mm pipes. Screw two ­flanges to the other ends of the two 1200mm pipes.

12. Centre the hanging rack on the top plank. Screw in place.
