After hearing so many people rave about Odie’s I decided to give it a shot, and thus far I am very impressed. I’ve tried it on white oak, red oak, hard maple, ambrosia maple, black cherry, black walnut, mahogany, ebony, and bubinga, and gone up to 400, 600, 800, and 1000 grit just to see what happens. It looks amazing...plain and simple. Based on my tests I’ll be putting to immediate use on two important commission projects. I’ll likely try more Odie’s products in the future. The bonus part is that it’s non-toxic and actually smells really good.
Odie's Dark, a rich dark finishing oil, contains natural oxidizing oils that darken wood not only when applied, but also as wood ages. Will also add contrast and patina with age. Use alone or in unison with other Odie's products to add polish and sheen. Instructions for basic Odie's products also apply to all Odie's Dark finishes.
The dark depth and rich patina are such that results cannot be duplicated with a stain. Odie's Dark creates incredible contrast. Blacks pop! Use to not only darken any wood when applied, but to also naturally darken wood with age. Great for mahogany and ebony. Will actually get better with age, becoming more durable and beautiful.
Recommended for interior use. Doors, floors, fine furniture, bowls, toys, etc.
Great for all species of wood, exotic and domestic. Formulated to work on even the oiliest of woods.
Just like all the Odie's finish products, Odie's Dark is a food safe, non-toxic wood finish and stabilizer that is easy to use. Odie's Dark is solvent free.
Odie's Dark does not contain driers or toxic chemicals. Safe for everybody:families, kids, pets!
Odie's Dark contains natural UV inhibitors-sunscreen for your wood.
Just like all Odie's finish products, all of the Odie's Dark finishes are revolutionary products that out perform and out cover the competition.
Easy to use. A little goes a long way. Use sparingly! Truly economical, Odie's Dark averages 21 sq. ft./oz. on most domestic woods---a 9 oz jar of Odie's Dark will cover more square footage than 1 gallon of other leading brand finishes. Coverage will vary depending on wood density and porosity.
All Odie's Dark finishes are hand-made in small batches in the USA to insure quality.
Fantastic product. Little goes a long way. Loved the finished look on my live edge shelves.
Incredibly easy application, and beautiful results. And it smells fantastic as well.
Oh man where do I begin! I am so thankful that I found this finish for my products! Everyone is always amazed at how easy it is to use and how beautiful it comes out each and everytime!
Very easy to use and left a nice smooth finish. Will definitely use again.
Used odie's dark on a crib I built for my child, the finish came out beautifully. Will be finishing the changing table and floors as well!.
Great product and awesome company!
I used Odie's Dark to make our new Knotty Alder barn door in our master bedroom look more aged. It did a fantastic job and looks great. I am really pleased with it, we have a knotty alder entry door to that room that I am going to use Odie's dark on too. I am also going to try Odie's wax. If the products were not so expensive I would probably start only using Odie's on all of my projects. However since after shipping its $44 for 9 ounces, I will have to save it for special projects. So far I am a huge fan of Odie's and they have amazing customer service. I would highly recommend it.
This product provides a beautiful finish that is easy to apply. I use the all-natural, non-toxic oil on all of my fine walnut furniture pieces to develop a rich, deep luster. The results generate excellent reviews from my customers. -Woody
I found odies on social media and decided to give it a try on my current floor project. I laid just under 500sft of rustic maple, which is half of my first floor. I wanted a product I could put down and not have to evacuate the house. Odies is a natural oil that has a pleasant scent. After the long process of prepping/sanding the floor I was eager to start applying the oil. The owner called me (after business hours) and walked me through the application process step by step. He made it very cut and dry for me and I followed his directions step by step. It was a very easy application and I only used less than half of two jars. I ordered five thinking they were exaggerating on how far one jar would go. They were not. This stuff really goes a long way and left a beautiful finish on our new floors. We will be putting it to the test with two big dogs and New York Winters. I think I'm going to be very happy with this great product, and couldn't be more happy with their exceptional customer service.
