Odie's oil

Written by Connie Taylor on 3rd Feb 2020

Loved the product. Follow the instructions and it is just as easy as they say. We refinish our hard maple island top every year or two and it looks like new 6 years later. Five stars.

Awesome product

I used the original Odie's Oil on a mesquite buffet and it looks outstanding. Easy to use and a durable finish what a great product.

Best wood finishing product.

Great product! Love the look and ease of application. Just gotta remember that when I think I'm done buffing, I need to buff just a little bit more. Lol

Awesome, I have used other oils with carnauba, Odie’s is equal to, easier to use. Working a cypress project, brings depth, color and a smooth satin finish.

Odies oil

Written by Rochelle Lentschke on 20th Nov 2019

I had never tried to oil a wood product before. I learned about this product in a YouTube video. No one I knew was familiar with the products. I'm so glad I tried it! It was easy for this first-timer and both of my projects (the test project and the intended project) are outstanding. Smells great, easy clean up and absolutely love the finish. I highly recommend this product.

Odies is amazing!!!

Odie's Oil

Written by Zack hubbard on 15th Oct 2019

Performed just as advertised. I used it to refinish some white pine counter tops. Two coast were needed for this very soft wood. Definitely be cautious about applying too much. A little goes a LONG way. Easily hand buffs out to a nice shine.

Great for butcher block

Written by Mathew Hanson on 7th Oct 2019

So far I’ve loved odie’s oil for my maple butcher block countertop. We have a sink in the countertop, so I wanted something I knew would stand up to some water. Easy to apply! Watch the videos on the website and you’ll be a pro.

Odies was easy to apply, but even more so, I’m impressed with the finished product: durable and allows for a pure feel

Great product. Easy application

Written by Connor nash on 17th Sep 2019

This oil is great, easy application. Smells great too, just follow the directions and your piece will come out exceptionally well.


Written by Holger Pleiss on 15th Sep 2019

I absolutely love this product, it is very pleasant to work with: smells great, no irritation to skin, looks beautiful. Don't kid yourself though into thinking that it'll be much faster to apply as it only requires a single coat. It takes a good workout to make it last as you need to work hard to get it into the pores of the wood you are applying it to. However, it is well worth the effort. I looked around before I ordered from the US for delivery to NZ but even the "all natural" finish produced locally in Christchurch seemed to come with some health warnings, so in my view Odie's Oil is a superior product. Highly recommended. Only downside is that the shipping cost seems to creep up every time I order. For an identical order maybe 6 months back, shipping was in the low 30s. Now we're in the high 50s for the same order, both times choosing the cheapest shipping option.

Odie’s Oil

Written by Paul Shelgren on 12th Sep 2019

Unbelievable results from Odie’s Oil, easy application, brings out the natural color of the wood like no other product I’ve used. Odie’s Is now my #1 finish product for all the furniture we build. Best part is our customers love the results

Odie’s original oil

Written by Dawn Mccombs on 11th Sep 2019

This was an amazing product for my furniture refinish project! Not only did it make the grain in the walnut pop it actually made my whole house smell so good, like beeswax and honey! I needed some questions answered about the process as well, and Odie’s responded promptly and kindly to my many questions and never seemed annoyed that I had to ask so many. I can’t recommend this product or the staff enough!

Oldies oil review

Written by Kyle on 4th Sep 2019

A five star product. Truly a wipe on wipe off with no mess. The biggest and most value I’ve seen was applying this to a entry door. The door takes half a days abuse from the sun. Oldies Oil seems to comfort the door with no sign of wear. Other products flake and discolor. With no limits to what you can apply this to I see it as a house hold staple . Thanks to the Oldies team.

Written by mark on 25th Jun 2019

I like Odie's oil because it so easy to use. A safe all natural product, as they say a little goes a long way. It also has a great natural fragrance.


Written by ed on 19th Jun 2019

seems good so far... trying to use as little as possible as they state, still getting a feel for that. Finally stumbled across a good link on webpage with tips-tricks etc, seems info a bit scattered so finding more each time I'm on the site. I see others with a high sheen, I sanded maple to 400grit, hoping to get a nice high luster, will see how 2nd coat looks and add wood butter. Tons of great reviews, I'm seeing great potential... so nothing but high hopes!

So far so good

Written by Jake Kidney on 14th Jun 2019

So far so good! I've used this on hackberry, black walnut, black cherry, spalted maple, and red maple and have not been disappointed! My favorite part is I can apply it inside without a mask and gloves and within an hour it can be buffed and set aside. No further sanding or coats added. No bad fumes (actually smells quite good) and non-toxic.

First time use

Written by Taylor on 22nd May 2019

I recently applied the Odies Oil for the first time to a conference table (12’x4’). Following the directions closely this product was incredible easy to apply and has a profound affect on the wood. The grain came to life and the client was incredibly happy with the product. This product smells great, looks great and is very easy to use!

Odies OIl - Oil Finish

Written by Stacy Goldsworthy on 14th May 2019

I have used the oil to finish a macrocarpa counter top. The oil has done an excellent job of highlighting the grain and providing a great looking finish. It has also brought out features of the grain that wouldn't have been visible if the top had been polyurethaned. Easy to apply. Great product to bring out the natural features of any timber.

Let me just start by saying that I am a hobbiest wood worker. I’ve used the Odies Oil for the first time on a cypress crosscut coffee table. Very easy to apply and the finish is amazing.

We absolutely love Odie's Oil. It is easy to use, and truly brings out the natural beauty of the wood. Odie's oil does a beautiful job without any muss or fuss ~ and no odor! Odie's Oil is a winner in our book, along with the excellent customer service we received.

First time order

Written by James Lambe on 14th Mar 2019

Odies original

Written by Jason cardwell on 27th Feb 2019

Made my kitchen countertops look rich and natural and doesn’t water spot either. Smells awsosome. Have used it on some antique funiture to wake up the old finish and it looks amazing. This is the only product I want to use anymore.

Love it

Written by Steve on 27th Feb 2019

I’ve been using this product for several years now and I have never been disappointed, not one time. It leaves a fantastic finish simple to apply I don’t have to worry about temperature or dust control. It smells wonderful you don’t have to wear gloves it repels water almost immediately. I can’t Say enough good things about this product. I haven’t used another finish in over two years. I’ve used it on vanity tops to kitchen tables and everything in between with no complaints


Written by Daniel Schnarr on 23rd Feb 2019

I searched for a long time for the right sealer for my concrete countertops and once I saw odies would work I just had to use it and just like wood it’s amazing. The only downside to using odies on concrete is you will use a lot more.

Odie's Oil 9oz jar

Written by Carl Baze on 12th Feb 2019

I am very happy with the results. I bought this oil to use on the handles of knives that I make. So far I've only used it on some Cocobola Wood and it looks good. My only complaint would be that it seems to have a short shelf life which is not good for me as I may only need to use it every three or four months and a little bit of this stuff goes a long way. I did buy some small baby food jars (2.5 oz) and poured the remaining oil into those jars up to the rim, leaving no room for air. I hope this works and keeps the oil fresh. I'm looking forward to trying this oil on some Desert Iron Wood.

Odies in nz

Written by Harry Mclennan on 10th Jan 2019

I had this product shipped all the way to New Zealand after seeing a lot of good things about it online. I am very impressed with the finish and an added bonus it smells incredible too! You can’t buy anything like it on NZ. Also had no issues with customs and it shipped super fast. Slowest bit was once it got into NZ. I’ll be buying again.

This stuff is A M A Z I N G. A little goes a long way. The protection in the wood is intense. The grains seem to pop more when this is used to finish your piece and it really brings the wood to life. I’ll be a life time fan!

Odie’s oil

Written by Dian land on 28th Dec 2018

I searched for a long time for a sealer for the live-edge pine slab I recently bought to use as a kitchen table. I wanted something that was food safe, odor free and easy to apply. I settled on Odie’s Oil because it sounded as if it might fit the bill in all three areas. Still I really wondered if the application would go as smoothly as the Odie’s instructional video made it look.I was pleasantly surprised! I completed the project (two coats) in an afternoon and I’m super happy with the results. I’ll be using Odie’s Oil on all future wood finishing proejects and I’ll definitely recommend the product to others who are thinking of it. Thanks!

Odies oil

Written by Rob on 20th Dec 2018

Let me start by saying I am VERY picky about my finishes. I do not like film finishes for the refinish work as I intend my furniture to last many many lifetimes and outlast any film finish. I do a lot of thick walnut slab furniture and a lot of maple and cherry as well being from Pennsylvania. Let’s start with the goods, it goes a LONG way. I finished 13 walnut bar tables top bottom and sides and a 10’ bar with less than one 9 oz jar!! The finish went on very quick and easy and is pretty much cool proof which is a far cry from any finish I’ve used before. It creates a nice warmth and depth to the wood, and a pretty nice sheen. It’s a little oily/ glossy for MY ultimate appearance but still an 8/9 out of 10. It also darkened a slight bit more than my usual finish which is quite an extensive process and not nearly as forgiving as the odies. But less dark than nearly any other finish I’ve tried. Not quite as beautiful as the finish I’ve been perfecting over the last few years but this was my first time and it came out wonderful

Bathroom Project

Written by Thomas Dean on 21st Nov 2018

Don't laugh....but we laid a hardwood floor in our BATHROOM!! yes, you read that right, wood floor in a bathroom. I sanded a perfectly good finish off in order to give it an Odie's Oil finish and we could not be happier!! We have the same flooring in the rest of our home but the Odie's Oil finish looks so much warmer and Natural! We are considering doing it in the rest of the house....if I can get someone to sand the original finish off that is!! Our 2 sons are in the cabinet industry and I have recommended Odie's Oil to them. So easy to apply and with NO unpleasant odors. I will be finishing our handmade dining table soon with Odie's Oil. Can't wait to see the results!!


Written by Darren Gottschall on 13th Nov 2018

Hello - I'm a beginner to woodworking, but have tried a few difference finishes on my projects so far. I heard about Odie's Oil from a friend, and used it recently on a live-edge table made from ambrosia maple. The oil was very easy to apply, and throughout 2-3 days really brought out the natural color of the wood. It leaves a thin sheen on the surface, but is not overwhelmingly glossy or artificial looking. You can apply multiple coats to get a higher gloss, but I prefer the look of just one coat to leave the natural look of the wood. Overall, satisfied and will be purchasing more.

ODies oil

Written by Scott Killman on 12th Nov 2018

By far the best finish I’ve ever used. You will get similar, if not better, results as with Arm R Seal from General Finishes but it’s so much easier to use. One coat is all you need and it really does go a long way. I don’t use anything else.

And I am looking forward to trying the other products Odie's sells, too.

Odies Oil + Pigments, the real deal

Written by Ryan Walsh, LumberLust on 20th Oct 2018

We've used Odie's Oil and pigments on a variety of high end luxury custom furniture commissions along with small personal projects that need protection under intense circumstances. Odie's allows for easy application and touchups. Its become my go-to finish for food-safe items like wood utensils and cutting boards, and butcher block.

Odie’s Oil

Written by Cory N. on 18th Oct 2018

What an amazing product. So easy to apply and buff off for total shine, and it brings out just the most amazing depth of figure in wood. It smells great too! My only slight negative is the quantity needed - although the jar says “a small amount goes a long way,” I find that the area covered is always less than I’m hoping for. At the price, I was hoping I could stretch the jar further. However, I’m so impressed with the results that I ordered a whole lot more! Five stars

Great product! I used the original oil on a walnut table with an epoxy inlay. I am seriously impressed with the finish and how easy it was to apply. I used an auto buffer to buff the finish. I’m looking forward to using other products.

OdieS oil review

Written by Brandon Larousse on 6th Sep 2018

The product is exactly as described. If you are looking for an all natural finish without dullness or glossiness then this is your product. A small amount really does go a very long way so there is much value in a jar. The only thing that they did not advise enough on was how great this stuff smells. Do you have an Odie’s candle?

Odie's Oil

Written by Julie Johnson on 4th Sep 2018

My new favorite product. I took old birchwood cabinets that my father and grandfather built out of a duplex I was remodeling. The contractor told me to toss them, but I stripped and sanded them down and applied Odie's Oil and they were magically transformed. It is an easy one step application that deals, protects and enriches the wood and brings out the natural grain. No gloves or respirators needed. It is not toxic and smells wonderful. I'm buying more to have on hand for my next project.

I’m truly impressed!

Written by Michael on 29th Aug 2018

I just refinished my maple butcher block countertops. I was originally going to use Waterlox, but after some research and insight from a local woodworker, I went with Odie’s Oil. I just applied it to my counters and am truly amazed at how fantastic they look. The coating is so easy, and the finish is the most naturally uniform I’ve ever worked with. The wood instantly became lusterous, and the Odie’s Oil brought a new richness and warmth to the maple. I’ll be using this for all my future wood finishes.

Odie's oil - The best finish I've every used

Written by Kyle guinto on 28th Aug 2018

Odie's oil is an experience unlike any other. Finishing is actually one of my least favorite parts of the project, crazy, I know. I have a large aversion to the smell of most finishes, I hate getting all the gunk everywhere and I always feel a little less satisfied with how the finish comes out. With Odie's there was none of that. Opening the jar greets you with this wonderful warm citrus smell, the finish is super smooth and doesn't gunk up and once it's all buffed it looks and feels amazing. Couldn't keep my hands off the cutting board I just finished I had to keep feeling the silky smoothness. Turned what I normally have to put on a respirator and gloves for into an experience I relished. Great product, definitely becoming my finish of choice. Worth every penny!

The best product to bring out the natural beauty of wood. Really like the easy of application and the end results are pleasing to the eye.

superior in application and performance

Written by jason miles on 6th Aug 2018

Odies has been the easiest finish to apply of any I've used. The performance is second to none and holds back liquid the way a wax does. The wood finishes slightly darker than my previous go-to finish but I'm not complaining. It also seems to give a little extra boost and depth to grain figure.

First time user on a black cherry table. Impressed with how little I had to use. Excellent product although all the Rubio fans tell me it can’t stack up but right now as far as I can tell this product is great. I hear it also works to polish/buff and penetrate metal. I am about to try this out. So far I really like this product but I am disappointed that there is not a Canadian distributor

This oil is really awesome! So many ways to achieve desired finish! I used it to finish 3 picture frames I made with western juniper, they turned out with a gorgeous sheen that highlighted the grain and the knots! So much better than a spray on plastic looking finish! My new finish of choice! THANKS!

One of the best

Written by Jacob Jenkins on 12th Jul 2018

I wanted to try this product after seeing an instagramer test a variety of oils and finishes. Odies oil came out on top for him, red wine couldn't even stain it. I have only used it on one peice so far, and entryway table I built out of black walnut with maple bow tie inlays. This finish is incredible. I love the natural look of the wood, and the oil really brings out all the textures. I would highly reccomend this product to anyone.

Love it!

Bought this for the handles of the knives we make. It is a superlative product, exactly as described. A very small amount applied in a single coat with a grey pad, buffed with towelling an hour or two later then left to cure for three days gives an incredible beautiful waterproof sheen. Fantastic.

Best finish out there!!

Written by T and t tables on 2nd Nov 2017

We have tried many different types and different brands of finish and Odie's Oil is the best product on the market. We love the natural look to all the pieces when we use Odie's. The features of the live edge just pop when we use this product.

Odie's oil

Written by Sam Soet on 9th Oct 2017

By far the best wood finish I have ever used. No more sticky urethane mess or latex gloves. Because you wipe the surface clean I don't have to worry about any little particles getting stuck in the finish. The fact that it's a one coat application saves so much time. Finished pieces look like beautiful wood instead of plastic. It's good for interior and exterior and it's food safe! A little bit goes a long way. I can't say enough about this product, the various other finishes that I own have gone completely unused since I discovered Odie's.

Top notch Products

Written by Jake on 19th Sep 2017

I mostly make wooden kitchen items, spoons, cutting boards, etc and had previously been using walnut oil with a walnut oil/beeswax finish. Walnut oil isn't a bad product at all but it would make my finished products a couple shades darker, losing some of the grain patterns in the process. Also, I didn't like how walnut oil would give some lighter/white colored woods a yellowish tint. One doesn't know how well a product will work until they just try it for themselves. That's what I did, now I love Odie's Oil and the Odie's Wax, which are the two that I use. Important things for me, Odies' oil keeps the wood true to the natural color, Odies Wax makes the water bead off my wood products and it's food safe! I highly recommend these products, I will no longer use anything else! The two that I use do exactly what they say they do, worth every penny!

Best finishing product out there!!

The more I use Odie's Oil the more I am convinced that this is the best product out there. The wood pieces that we make have the natural wood look to them that we have been looking for.

Great for oak floors

Written by Jen Shaffer on 18th Jul 2017

We loved our experience with Odie's oil. Used it to finish our 85 year old red oak floors. It was very easy to apply. It goes on easily and quickly and buffs off (two hours later) cleanly. It seems to be curing without any problems. I can't speak to the long-term awesomeness yet as it's only been on the floor for two days. But we love how it turned out and would absolutely use it again. I emailed questions on the site and received a call back just a few hours later. All of my questions were answered clearly and fully. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product to anyone. And I will be buying it again to finish some other wood projects around the house.

The finish is beautiful. I've just finished my 4th piece and will be ordering more. Biggest personal impression? It's a workout to apply! But don't be a sissy! It's worth it ;)

Easy to work with

The product is very easy to work with and it brings out the beauty of the live edge wood that we work with.

Best Finish & it even smells good!

Written by DrTim Wittman on 28th Oct 2016

I often set out my sculptures in the kitchen to look at the throughout the day and enjoy their beauty. This can be a point of contention for my wife who doesn't like clutter. The first time I used Odie's Oil she came into the kitchen and announced, 'wow, it smells like a wonderful spa in here!' Now there are no complaints about clutter. Thanks Odie's!

Lets the grain of the wood come alive

Odie's Oil is a wonderful product that brings out the details of the grain and any live edge features on all the tables we build. It makes our tables "pop."

My favorite oil finish

Written by Alex Myla on 28th Jul 2014

I bought a small bottle from woodcraft a while back and tried it out. After posting about my results and how pleased I was, The owners reached out to me and sent me some samples of their wax and wood butter. I used these products to finish my latest guitar build with stunning results. Im a pretty convinced customer and just recently bought a 9oz bottle of the original oil. Thanks guys. https://zerofret.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/20140711-163736-59856692.jpg

I tried odies oil on a white birch ladle I made for a sauna. It brought out the rich colors in the grain and buffed out to a warm glow. The oil smells of citrus and is pleasant to work with. I will be sending for the wood butter to try on my next project .
