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.

Odie's Oil is a proprietary blend of oils and waxes, born out of inspiration, hard work and a driving need to solve problems specific to the woodworker. The culmination of 30+ years of research, development and field testings in the most extreme environments produced a revolutionary product that out-performs and out-covers the competition.

A LITTLE ODIE'S OIL GOES A LONG WAY! USE SPARINGLY. "No solvents" means there is almost nothing to evaporate, so what you put on the wood, stays in the wood. Odie's Oil covers many, many times the area of other wood finishes. Up to 20 times the coverage as conventional finishes. Coverage will vary depending on wood density and porosity.
It is made by hand in small batches to insure quality. And of course, it is made in the USA.

Everyone i know uses this oil and i love what it does....it seals and is food friendly and not a stain....great product
Brought new life to an old coat rack my grandfather built decades ago. As well as that turned out, I plan on using for several upcoming projects. Highly recommend.
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. You CANNOT mess up with applying it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an all natural finish that is easy to apply.
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.
The product has been amazing, I am curious how long the product last once you open it since it is all natural. I applied the product to 4 cutting boards and look great. I am working on a custom coffee table next to try it out.
Good product. Good finish. I’ll be ordering more in the future.
First time using odies. Finished a monkey pod kitchen table and couldn’t be happier with the results. Only finishing product to use!
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
I found this product too late in life! It goes on easily, smells good, and the finish is Beautiful! Very easy to use! I definitely will be trying out the rest of the products. Thank you Odie's !!
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!
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
Product is amazing. Customer service is bar none.
I love working with this oil. It made the wood beautiful!
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!!
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.
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.
You will not be disapointed with the results of this product. Be sure to follow diresctions and use of steel wool works very well to buff following initial application.
Easy to rub on and buff off. And looks great! Using multiple layers in hopes of maximizing protection from liquids
This stuff is awesome! I saw alot of people on Instagram using it, so I figured I would give it a try.. I love that I can sand my cutting boards to 600 grit and easily apply this oil with paper towels and a wool buffing pad. I'll reccomend this to all my woodworking friends now! And I am looking forward to trying the other products Odie's sells, too.
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.
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
Not only is the finish astounding, their customer service is even better! I wouldn't use anything else but Odies Oil!!!!
This oil is amazing, I’ve used it on solid oak skirting boards and solid oak door linings and WOW!!! They look incredible. So easy to use just spread on, then work it into the wood and then buff. Easy as 1-2-3.
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.
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?
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 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 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!
Incredibly easy to apply & doesn't turn tacky when drying! Our table looks phenomenal!!
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.
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.
This product really is amazing. Super easy to use and is a high quality finish!
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!
Love the product, took a while to find the correct finish and finally found Odiesoil. It’s my goto finish now!!!
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.
Purchased this after watching a Facebook page recommendation. Super easy to apply & even smells very nice (because who wouldn’t want their wood project to smell good lol) I refurbished a sewing machine base and placed a cherry slab top on it. Odie’s Oil worked perfectly for the slab.
Great finish, easy to apply, all natural and safe to use, and it smells great. Happy customer here!
This is very easy to apply and smells amazing. Rub into wood, buff out and you’re done. One of the smoothest finishes I’ve ever used. Food safe is a huge plus too. I’ve already ordered the wax!
Excellent product at a fair price.
Le produit est exceptionnel! Merci.
I got a jar for a friend of mine whom I sort of teaching about finishing and wood working by telephone. He has used it on three turnings and loves it. He is impress with how little needs to be used.
Machinist by trade but a novice woodworker. Made a barn door from redwood and was referred by a friend to Odie’s products. Was easy to apply and job came out better than I expected.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
I use Odie oil for finishing bowls I turn. It produces a beautiful finish.
Easy to use and provides a beautiful finish to my projects I use it for wood turnings as well as other items. I highly recommend this product to anyone for any project.
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 ;)
The product is very easy to work with and it brings out the beauty of the live edge wood that we work with.
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!
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."
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 .
I tried this when, I was looking for a safe product. This product Totally fit the bill, NONE of my clients want to use anything else.
This is the best new product to finish my wood turnings with that I have ever used, it is so simple and makes your work look soo good.Smells great, no bad fumes, thanks to all the hard work that went into making this! Richard
