Overview

The late Sam Maloof, one of America's most accomplished woodworkers, used these same finishes on pieces placed in museums and the White House. Sold in pint- and quart-size cans.

"One of the most important aspects of finishes, I believe, is that they invite me to touch, to caress and to take pleasure in the wood surface." Sam Maloof.

Maloof's Poly/Oil Finish is a custom blend of polyurethane varnish and natural oils developed by Sam Maloof to beautifully finish his finest pieces. Ideal for use on furniture, cabinets and millwork. Enlivens wood grain and adds warmth to its color. Gives your project the look of a hand-rubbed satin finish in half the time it takes using pumice and rottenstone. Consider using Sam Maloof's Oil/Wax for the final coat to complete the look.

Sam Maloof Oil/Wax Finish is a blend of oils and waxes used as a final coat over Sam Maloof's Poly/Oil Finish to create a soft, hand-rubbed appearance while enlivening the wood's character. This topcoat is recommended for fine pieces that won't be exposed to heat or moisture. Apply with a cloth.

Michael J B from Walker, MN Posted April 24, 2013
I recently finished my version of a Maloof style rocker and used this finish. This finish adds great depth, warmth, and character to walnut. As I began to apply the first coat, the walnut rocker was transformed from just a rocker to an invitation to touch. Easy to use and very reasonable odors. The finish provided an excellent reward for the hours of prep sanding.

Guest from Camarillo, CA Posted September 10, 2012
As a professional luthier of 32 years, I had sought an alternative to environmentally detrimental finishes that required spraying and/or laborious wet sanding and multiple coat build up. Nothing I had tried could be applied evenly or had acceptable wear resistance. Then I found the Maloof Poly/Oil, and it has not only made my work easier, but also provided a superior finish for my instruments. There is nothing else like it on the market, and it outperforms any other poly finish by miles.

James A from Pawnee, OK Posted June 23, 2011
A friend of mine gave me a sample of the Sam's oil in a small jar. I love the stuff. It's very easy to apply and I love the way it makes stuff shine. I use it only on very hard woods. I'm a wood turner and I buff my stuff after applying the oil.My only problem is after a few openings the can no longer seals good. Then it starts to dry out. I hate to put it in Mason jars, but I think that is what I'm going to do with it.
