Pro Finishing Tips

  • Avoid rushing your finishing, particularly with oils.
  • Clean the dust off the piece before applying, particularly open grained woods.
  • Apply with paper towel and the lathe stationary.
  • Once opened, leave the plasic spout out.
  • For the best finish, build the product up in multiple coats over several days, allowing 24 hours curing time between no more than 4 – 6 coats.
  • Lightly de-nib the surface between cured coats before applying more oil.
  • With many coats applied, a warm gloss shine can be achieved by carefully buffing the cured surface.
  • Can be used with the Intrinsic Colour Collection.
  • If using as an embellishment rather than a finish, apply the oil before any sealer.
  • Ensure the product is completely cured before applying any further finishes or putting into use.
  • Firmly replace the lid after use.
  • Store in a cool dry place out of direct light, away from heat sources and protect from freezing. Once opened, use within 6 months.
  • Lay saturated towels or cloths flat to cure before appropriate disposal. Do Not Pile Them Up.
