The Original Finish with mildecide is our most popular and most versatile finish. It can be used on just about any woodwork, especially timbers, logs, trim, T&G, or in finer applications such as furniture. Can be applied by brush, rag, lambswool pad, roller, or sprayer. It is thin enough for quick penetration with enough solids for a rich water-resistant coat. The look of the final finish is matte with only two coats. Subsequent coats, buffing and top coating with our Liquid Wax End Sealer will produce more sheen and increase the water-resistance.

Coverage: Approx. 350 square feet per gallon or 500 board feet per gallon; rough-sawn materials tend to absorb more. You get less coverage on the first coat and more on the second. The density of the wood is also a factor. Softer woods like pine or reclaimed Doug-fir will absorb more than oak for example. And obviously dry wood will soak up a lot more oil than green timbers. You may want to over-estimate when ordering.

Clean Up: For spills, over spray, or to clean up brushes, use our Pure Citrus Solvent or other solvent (Turpentine, Mineral Spirits, etc.).

*For additional protection against insects, consider treating all wood with a borate solution before oiling.

Sizes: quarts, one gallon paint can, 2 gallon pail, 5 gallon pail with pour spout lid.
