Overview

Tried and true, tung oil has served to protect and beautify wood products for centuries. Hand-rubbed, oil-based finish goes on in minutes. Ideal for refinishing because it soaks into parched pores and restores the wood. A fresh coat will really make wood tones on an older piece "pop."

Recommended for all interior wood surfaces, including furniture, antiques, woodwork, cabinets, doors and paneling.

  • Can be brushed onto raw wood, or over Minwax Wood Finishes and other Minwax wood stains.
  • Apply with cloth or brush.
  • 5-10 minute dry time prior to buffing.
  • Re-coat after 24 hours; 2-3 coats recommended.
  • Clean up with mineral spirits.
  • Covers 125-150 square feet per quart.
  • Quart.

This the most perfect finish I've...

Scott N from Nashville, TN Posted February 28, 2010
This the most perfect finish I've found for nice furniture. 100 % tung oil is difficult to work with. Minwax makes tung oil finishes easy. Easy to repair a finish. Like James from Idaho, I apply with 0000 steel wool. Leaves a low lustre finish that is beautiful to touch and really makes the wood grain "pop". Many, many comments from customers about the beauty of the finishes on my pieces.

I use this on almost everything...

Guest from Boise, ID Posted January 4, 2009
I use this on almost everything I build. I've used it on walnut, cherry, maple, jatoba, alder, pine, birch and red oak: decorative items and furniture.My recipe: Sand the bare wood surfaces with 150 and then 220 grit sandpaper. Wear rubber gloves and apply with 0000 steel wool dipped in the finish. Rub the finish into the wood with the steel wool, let it sit for about three minutes and then wipe off the excess with a lint-free cloth. Repeat at 24-hour intervals for a total of 4-6 coats for a nice gloss. The first couple of coats seal up the wood and subsequent coats build up a hard finish on the surface. Be sure not to wipe *everything* off on the last few coats.The steel wool buffs out any imperfections or dust embedded in the previous coats and the result is a silky finish that is almost sensual to the touch. It's especially nice on walnut.

My finish of choice for most...

John D from Black Canyon City, AR Posted August 9, 2008
My finish of choice for most projects. Minwax Tung Oil is the only brand of tung oil I have found that provides a glossy, hard protective finish similar to a poly without the harmful and stinky outgassing associated with polyeurethane-type finishes. On the first coat, the wood soaks up a lot of tung oil. But on additional coats the product goes much farther. I have also used this product over one coat of boiled linseed oil as a first coat to make the tung oil go farther. This works great, but make sure the linseed oil has plenty of time to dry thoroughly before going back with a coat of tung oil. Lightly sand with 220 or finer and wipe off sanding dust with tack cloth between coats, and after 3-6 coats you'll have a deep, lustrous, glossy, hard protective finish that's all natural. And if you ever need to touch up or refinish, just lightly sand with a fine grit paper and add a fresh coat of tung oil right over the old tun oil finish--no stripping necessary.
