Tried & True Wood Finish
Original Wood Finish - Oil Based - Pint
Sometimes the old ways of finishing are the best. Tried & True® Original Wood Finish is a highly polymerized linseed oil combined with beeswax. A premium oil finish from a 19th-century recipe that is 100% solids and solvent free. It dries to a fine finish reminiscent of the patina...
Use to revive any existing finish such as those found on doors and windows, paneling and furniture. This unique finish is safe for cutting boards, toys, and children's furniture. It complies with the FDA regulations (FDA 21 Sec. 175.300) as "safe for food contact surfaces." We have tried this in our shop. We are very impressed with both the ease of application and the quality of the finish.

Original Wood Finish by Tried & True
I used this product on a vintage military rifle stock. It gave me the results I was looking for: a good protective finish without an unnatural, glossy look. Also, a little goes a long way.
Great for Restoration
I was initially apprehensive about this product because many of the reviews around the internet claimed it "doesn't dry," but I was looking for a traditional finish that would complement an early 19th century piece that had a hard varnish over the original oil. The trick with this finish, I think, is that it takes a lot of elbow grease. Follow the instructions carefully - don't apply very much, wipe off the excess after an hour or so, burnish it 24 hours later. The second step is very important - I let it sit too long, and it was twice as hard to rub off as the first two coats were. Really take your time on the polishing, but I think what works best is to generate a little heat to soften the wax. I don't think this finish is any more work than Formby's Tung Oil, but it's so much more beautiful: soft to the touch, it looks and smells natural, the kind of finish that makes people want to reach out and pet your furniture. Way less hard though - I'd hesitate before recommending it for a dining table.
Very nice stuff
Since I don't see a review, I'll leave a comment. I found this to be a very nice product. I usually finish with linseed oil, including their product. I usually wax the finished piece after the oil sets. I tried this on a lark, and it gives a very nice result- either as the only finish, or as the last coat in a normal oil finish. The instructions, the website, the sticker on the top of the can all say VERY THIN COATS! OK, says I. It has a peculiar consistency since the wax is not completely dissolved in the oil. (shop temperature 70 F) I applied a barely wet coat with a stiff stippling brush, very much like paste wax- wiping after about an hour (big piece). It gives good coverage with very little waste. The finish sets to a waxy finish which buffs up to a smooth final result with very little work. I am very happy with it after two sizable pieces.
I used this product on a project made of West African Rosewood, (bubinga) and it looked fantastic. I followed the simple directions on the label and applied 2 coats. Very easy to use and the results were great.
