Finishing Oil - Chestnut Products
Finishing Oil is our version of Danish Oil* and uses Tung Oil as its base but with the addition of solvents and driers. This dramatically speeds up drying time so that it’s dry within eight hours. It has a pale amber colour and dries to a hard yet flexible film which is very hard wearing and water resistant.
For a high gloss finish apply several coats with a light rub down between coats; after 5 or 6 coats a good sheen should be visible.
Finishing Oil is normally applied by cloth but on larger areas a brush can be used.
*Danish Oil was and is a product championed by Rustins. The late, great Ronnie Rustin was very kind and helpful to us in our early years and we didn’t re-use the name as a mark of respect.
