Tung Oil


Tung oil is an extract from tree nuts found in China and South America. Of all the pure penetrating oil finishes, Tung oil offers excellent protection, but it requires patience… two to three days for each coat, and several coats to get a protective film. Don’t rush the process or apply too thickly. Like any penetrating oil, it needs to be absorbed into the wood, not pool on the wood.

Tung oil can be topped with the hardwax oil to achieve a protective film more easily or  it can be re-applied repeatedly over time (once a week for a month, once a month for a year, once a year ever after) to create a gorgeous  protective result.  Working with pure traditional oil requires patience but is rewarding.

Tung oil enhances wood grain and colour, without discoloration over time, allowing the natural beauty and texture of wood to remain true.
