OK all you timber lovers I have a lovely recycled oregon benchtop in my PPOR kitchen which, unfortunately, has suffered water damage behind the sink, due to water "sitting" in the gap between the splashback and elevated sink. The timber has gone black over time and is quite unsightly. The goal is to replace the sink with a nicer one (and new taps) and restore the timber by stripping, sanding back and oiling with a waterproof product. However, I've been given conflicting advice as to whether or not this will work. Some have said the black won't come out, others have said it will....sigh..... Any takers on products that may do the restoration trick?
