    Comments about Tried and True Danish Oil, Quart :

    I've been searching for an ideal finish for years and this is the closest I've come to it. Whereas other oils finishes require flooding the surface and wiping off most of the oil, which is extremely wasteful, this oil is applied sparingly and is therefore economical. Little percolation up from wood pores after wiping also makes it easier to apply than other oils. Remarkably, this product stays fresh in the can after it has been opened, unlike other oils that harden or become unusable. Best of all: it's nontoxic and has no petroleum distillates. Luster builds slowly so 5-6 coats may be needed for a nice sheen.

    Nice results, I like it

    • Expensive

    Comments about Tried and True Danish Oil, Quart :

    I have seen mixed reviews about this product. Bottom line, I like the results a lot. They stress on the can, on their website, everywhere- THIN COATS! OK. I applied it like paste wax. And it worked very well. Penetration was very good. Depth and color were very good. Two thin coats gave me all of the depth and results I expect from an oil finish. Drying time, for an oil finish was good. Oak has caused me problems with standard oil finishes, and this is superior. Yup, it's expensive compared to the usual linseed oil. I did use very little of it, compared to standard "boiled linseed oil" or straight tung oil. I will probably change over from standard "boiled linseed oil" products

    Comments about Tried and True Danish Oil, Quart :

    I used this Tried and True on the inside of a gourd art project. Sealed nicely but soaked through to the outside shell making it hard to stain or paint. Project turned out okay and has a good seal but need to make some adjustments.

    Comments about Tried and True Danish Oil, Quart :

    We used this oil on some black walnut wood that we're using as accent wood ledges in our kitchen. In just one coat it transformed the wood, deepening it's rich color, bringing out the grain, and pretty much blowing our minds! Love it!! And it didn't smell bad or for very long. By the evening we almost didn't notice it and by the next day, no smell at all. People are commenting on how it looks regularly! Thanks!

    Really like the way it works into the wood. They tell you to use very thin coats and they aren't kidding. I found it helps to slightly warm the oil before applying.
