Tried & True Wood Finishesare based in a polymerized linseed oil system. Essentially
polymerization is the process that the oil goes through (naturally) as it turns
from a liquid to a solid.When you apply Tried & True heat; light, and polishing complete that process,
leaving a clear, thin,flexible finish. In addition to the environmental benefits involved, our
products benefitfrom what is left out:petroleum solvents act as plasticizers on linseed oil.
Metallic driers tend tomake the finish dry from the outside in, leaving a gummy undersurface. Tried &
True WoodFinishes are longer lasting and more durable because there are no solvents or
driers used. All Tried& True wood Finishes are clear coatings. They work over well preparedsurfaces, colored with stains
or dyes, or on their own for a deep, natural sheen.
Danish Oilis pure, moderately polymerized linseed oil. This penetrating oil will
produce a beautiful satin sheen. Apply to kitchenware, cabinets, or your
interior woodwork for an easy and economical finish.

Original Wood Finish
is highly polymerized linseed oil
combined with beeswax. It dries to a fine finish
reminiscent of the "patina" on well cared for antique
furniture, yet it is durable and easy to use. Doors and
windows, paneling and furniture are all common uses. It
can be used to revive any existing finish.

(Additional information about Original Wood Finish.)
is highly polymerized linseed oil fortified
with natural resin varnish. This is a semi-gloss topcoat that
builds durability and sheen with each application. It has
excellent abrasion and scratch resistance and takes a high
polish. Applications are primarily to furniture (including
table tops) and kitchen counter tops.
