This finish provides excellent protection against water and liquids, and is a blend of linseed oil and beeswax. Used by professional woodworkers on bare or stained wood to provide a lower-gloss, antique sheen and long lasting protection. To use: apply a thin coat across entire piece of lint-free cloth (a little goes a long way). Allow the oil to penetrate the wood for 60 minutes. Rub with lint-free cloth until the surface is dry. Allow piece to cure for 24 hours. More coats will increase shine and protection. Do not use more than three coats. You can find more information on care and maintenance here.
