The Heritage Natural Finish Product Line is favoured by timber framers and traditional wood finishing purists. Made of plant based oils and beeswax, this finish will enhance the beauty of wood, is easy to work with, and results in a finish that can be maintained and spot repaired without ever requiring sanding off or total refinishing. Made with Pure Tung Oil, Special Aged Linseed Oil, Beeswax, Pine Rosin, and Pure Citrus Oil and nothing else. Low wax content allows Heritage Natural Finishes to be used inside and outside.
Concentrated Finishing Oil
$14.00 – $605.00
Heritage Concentrated Finishing Oil is a richer mix of the oils and solids found in the Original Finish, with less of the citrus solvent. Since it’s slightly thicker, it works well for hand application on vertical surfaces or woods that are particularly open-pored and absorbent like reclaimed timbers, weathered wood, more absorbent species like pine, and earthen floors. Can be buffed on or brushed though care must be taken to not over-apply. Remove excess that doesn’t soak in. For earthen floors, build up 4-6 coats of oil as desired, let dry to the touch then buff in a coat or two of our Liquid Wax End Sealer for a lovely top coat.
Sanding between coats is not necessary, however, wet sanding and buffing produce a superb finish. It can also be used on very dry timber as the initial coat for deeper hydration with fewer overall coats needed.
Coverage: Approx. 400 square feet per gallon or 500 board feet per gallon; rough-sawn materials tend to absorb more. You get less coverage on the first coat and more on the second. The density of the wood is also a factor. Softer woods like pine or reclaimed Doug. Fir will absorb more than oak for example. And obviously dry wood will soak up a lot more oil than green timbers. You may want to over-estimate when ordering. The finish keeps indefinitely when stored properly with minimal air exposure.
Clean Up: For spills, over spray, or to clean up brushes, use our Pure Citrus Solvent or another solvent (Turpentine, Mineral Spirits, etc.).
