1) I apply the conditioner
2) Gibberish
3) After a few weeks I go over the results
4) Makes the wood color deeper with a satin finish and should provide protection
5) Might build up over time due to the wax in the product
6) Overall I'm happy with the results
7) Closeup of the results

Was just searching for this information! I do my oak countertop a few times a year (light sanding + tung oil) to keep them looking nice. I expect it would darken a bit and add a little bit of a satin sheen, so I was hoping someone else would do it first ;)

Here's the oil I use on the counter, if anyone else is interested in trying first: https://www.realmilkpaint.com/shop/oils/pure-tung-chinawood/

Looks great! I can't find that stuff on Amazon, do you recommend any of these?

I would be interested as long as the wood does not become glossy.

I really wish Franz himself would tell us how we should protect that nice swath of wood trim. Anyone know how to get in touch with him?

OK, not having found a good answer anywhere, I just tweeted him. Stay tuned.

Well at least you looked around for 41/2 months before you tweeted him
I don't actually tweet so I even had to set up an account first and then other things about the car caught my fancy and the whole "wood" issue sorta dropped off the radar for while. Would have been cool to hear directly from him though, I recall someone here having their car delivered by Franz himself and he's clearly proud of his wood touch in the Model 3. :)
