An excellent finish for the finest of furniture, Tried & True Varnish Oil is a semi-gloss topcoat that builds durability and sheen with each application. It has excellent abrasion and scratch resistance and takes a high polish, if such is desired. Made from highly polymerized linseed oil fortified with natural resin varnish, which is derived from pine sap. Indoor use only.


  • A unique blend of highly refined polymerized linseed oil and natural resin varnish.
  • Resin is modified pine sap (a modified ester of Rosin that is non-toxic and food safe).
  • Formula derived from 19th century varnish making techniques.
  • High resin content produces a beautiful semi-gloss sheen.
  • Builds gloss, depth, and durability with each coat.
  • Will take an excellent polish, making it the ultimate hand-rubbed finish.
  • Gets harder and more durable with age.

Directions for Use:

  • Apply thin coats. It is almost impossible to use too little.
  • Allow the finish to sit on the surface about 1 hour.
  • Wipe dry and buff.
  • Consult the label for instructions on how to dispose of wiping cloths.
