Tried & True Varnish Oil

Regular price $44.00

"For years I've used Tried & True oil and varnish mixture. It's manufactured and sold by a small company in the United States, and I've never had a problem using it. It's environmentally friendly easy to apply, and you don't have to worry about getting it on your skin. Wipe on a light coat, allow it to soak in for about an hour, and then wipe off the excess."

Tried & True Varnish Oil is a superior penetrating linseed oil and natural resin finish that is ideal for all interior woodwork; including furniture, flooring, tables, countertops and surfaces that come in contact with food. Varnish Oil is commonly used by woodworkers for easy, wipe-in application to bare wood or overtop an already-stained piece to achieve an even sheen and long-lasting durability. 

  • Food Contact and Environmentally Safe
  • Zero Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
  • Safe for Skin Contact - No Heavy Metal Driers
  • Made From Renewable Ingredients


Apply a very thin coat across your entire piece with a lint-free cloth at room temperature.  Allow Varnish Oil to penetrate the wood for a minimum of 60 minutes. Rub in briskly with a lint-free cloth until the surface is dry to the touch. Allow the piece to cure for a minimum of 24 hours before additional coats.

Recommended: Burnish with a soft cloth or 0000 steel wool. The more you rub in the Varnish Oil the better the sheen will look.
Additional coats will deepen the sheen and increase protection.
Coverage Rate: up to 1000 sq. feet per gallon. Results may vary.
Additional Info: Avoid spontaneous combustion by soaking all oily rages in water, place in sealed container for proper disposal.
