The Advantages of an Oil Rubbed Finish
© C.A Lizell 2019
Nothing brings out the deep natural beauty of solid wood like an oil rubbed finish. Unlike urethane and varnish, a hand rubbed oil finish penetrates deep into the wood surface bringing a richness and dimension to the grain that is impossible to achieve with a film finish. And as an added bonus, scratches, dings, and abrasions that may happen down the road are easily repaired. A light sanding of the affected area and a fresh coat of oil is all that is needed to renew your wood products. An oil finish is water and spill resistant, and will endure and last for many years, and can be re-coated anytime for a fresh look, and to build up the finish for a more luxurious shine.
Heirloom Quality Oil and Bee's wax Finish

Our oil finish of choice is called "Tried and True" - a mixture of highly polymerized linseed oil and bees wax, and is completely non-toxic and all natural. Unlike most other rub on oil and varnish finishes, our all natural oil finish does not off-gas toxic chemical fumes into the air which can create a very unhealthy environment within your home. Our oil and beeswax finish is also water and spill resistant, but unlike film and rub on varnish finishes, this finish allows your wood to breath as it would naturally - ensuring the timeless endurance and longevity that solid wood is known for. Tried and True oil and beeswax finish is in our opinion the best rub on finish available, a finish perfected by mother nature, and in harmony with the environment. Tried and True is trusted by artists and craftsmen worldwide for use on valued wood products such as musical instruments, exotic woods, antique furniture, and numerous other solid wood furnishings and crafts. An oil finish brings a sense of quality that will endure with your investment in our solid wood products, and is also a wise investment into a heathy living environment, and the well being of those in your home.
