FDA approved as non-toxic and nonallergenic, Tried & True Original Wood Finish produces an "antique" sheen reminiscent of the patina on well-cared-for antique furniture.

Overview

Tried and True Original Wood Finish is a premium oil finish made with traditional varnish-making techniques and 100% natural, plant-derived ingredients. It provides a beautiful, natural sheen that allows the grain of the wood to shine through, yet gives plenty of protection for wood surfaces. It is safe for use with cutting boards and children's toys, and is FDA approved as non-toxic and nonallergenic.

Technical Details:

  • Tried & True Original Wood Finish is made from highly refined, highly polymerized Linseed Oil and pure Beeswax.
  • This product is 100% solids, and has no solvents or heavy metal driers.
  • Adapted from a Shaker finish and an English Arts and Crafts technique.
  • The finished surface has an "antique" sheen, reminiscent of the patina on well-cared-for antique furniture. The finish will shine without appearing glossy.
  • Original Wood Finish can be applied to revive any existing finish.
  • Original Wood Finish gets harder and more durable as it ages.

Directions for Use:

  • Apply thin coats. It is almost impossible to use too little.
  • Allow the finish to sit on the surface for about 1 hour.
  • Wipe down and buff with a soft, clean cloth.
  • Allow at least 24 hours between coats.
  • Consult the lable for instructions on disposal of wiping cloths.
  • Two coats is usually sufficient on trimwork, windows and doors. Furniture should have three coats.
  • Original Wood Finish will increase durability after 2 coats, but it will not increase in gloss.
  • Buff with a soft clean cloth to maintain the shine.

Good product!

I was looking for pure beeswax, but was convinced by the sales person that this semi-liquid form was better for my project. And it was. I was using this as a sealer for zinc countertops. It will need to be used occasionally and was easy to apply, polish and is a nice, unobtrusive, food safe finish.

I have used the original Tried...

I have used the original Tried and Trued on several projects with great results. I have become interested in more natural, old-time wood coloring/finishes, and have used Tried and True with fumed oak, nitric acid/heat treated poplar, sodium hydroxide treated cherry, bare pine, and as a top finish over milk paint. In every case it was easy to apply, and with several thin coats, gave me good control over the depth of the finish. All this in a non-toxic formula. The trade off was time. This is not a finish for the impatient. In general I got a mellow, rich look that has held up well. I recommend it with only one warning - take the application and temperature directions very seriously, or you will end up with a slow drying, tacky mess. If you're in a hurry, use another product. If you can relax and enjoy watching the finish build with each (thin) coat, this stuff is great.
