My favorite oil finish 5 Star Review

 

Posted 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.

"These pieces were all finished with your oil and wax but they didn't have that top coat of oil when the photos were taken....Thanks, Barry." 

On May 30, 2013

"Based on the way that extra coat of oil works over both your finish and my previous one, I think I've found what I've long been searching for. Thanks, Barry"

For Woodturning

"Hi, I have to say I am really enjoying using Odie's Oil on my projects. The picture is a purpleheart and hard maple laminated shallow bowl. It measures 11&1/2" in diameter, and a little better than 1&3/4" tall. I'll give the oil a little more time to soak in, and then buff it with the Beall buffing system." (see the bowl here in our Woodturners Photo Gallery)

"Hi. I am really starting to like this finish!!! These are oak bowls. The color that came out with the oil is great. This is a Sycamore Crotch with your oil, I did two - one with your oil and one with lacquer –This one with the oil has much more color." ... "I never mind learning something new, I have just been taking a small amount of oil and just rubbing it on, found out that less is better than more, then after an hour or so I take a clean cloth and just rub it a bit . thanks."

"I am a wood turner/woodcarver.  The enclosed photo has two coats of Odie's oil which I now use for most of my work.  I especially like the level of gloss possible without sanding between coats.  My woodworking group gives the Odie's results they see 100% approval." (See Abe's cherry vase in our Woodturner's Photo Gallery)

"Enclosed is a turned box titled "Fire in the Woods'.  Turned from a piece of rosewood bought from Florida Crotch Wood, it was finished with two coats of Odie's oil and buffed.  Oil is easy to apply and need very little to cover a large area. The colors popped after the first application and were even more distinctive after the second. Odie's is food safe and great on bowls, spurtles, etc." (see Joan's turned box in our Woodturners Photo Gallery)

Joan Weaver, Bell Woodturners, September 2012

 

"As new woodturners, my husband and I try all kinds of finishing products and techniques. Odie's make colors "pop", is easy to apply, and leaves a soft satin sheen.  Items shed dust easily after sitting in our workshop. Bowl is spalted black gum. Box is black cherry." (see Joan's bowl and box in our Woodturners Photo Gallery)

"I finished a couple of canary wood  pieces with Odie's oil today.  The first I had wet sanded using Danish oil.  Then I applied Odie's as directed on the label.  The result is a vast improvement over what I had been doing using Danish oil followed by polyurethane.  I dry sanded the second and applied the Odie's as directed.  This piece was also an improvement over my old method, but as much as the wet sanded piece.   Thanks for introducing me to this product. "

For Floors, Millwork and Cabinets

"I am writing you to let you know we had our occupancy inspection by the county today,  AT LAST!!  You and your fantastic oil finish have been such an integral part of our building process I was anxious to let you know and thank you again.  You would have been amused at the inspectors tour of our project, as I'm not entirely sure he checked everything required since he couldn't stop admiring our woodwork with your special finish.  It shouldn't surprise me, however, as all of the subcontractors we worked with (cabinet maker, fireplace mason, and master carpenter who helped me create my vision for the dining room/entry hall and staircase) were instructed to use only your finish on ALL the wood used in my house.  They absolutely loved the ease and simplicity your product required to finish the wood and especially how the professional, elegant results looked as if it had taken much more time and work than was needed.  Many of them have asked if they could purchase your "magic oil" for their individual enterprises."

For Floors and Decks

"I don't normally write to vendors regarding their product because, honestly, most of the time their product fails to live up to their claims.  I'm happy to say this is not the case with yours!  Simply put, it is stunning.  My office looks like a million bucks and our cabin is transformed.  Not only is your oil finish deep and lustrous, it appears to be more scratch resistant than the toxic urethane finishes.  Kudos to you and your company for producing a unique and beautiful product."

Olaf K.

For Floors and Boats

 "I have been using your product on my commercial Alaskan fishing boat since 2006, but it was my wife originally purchased your oil finish for our wood flooring in 2005. I was skeptical at first but I have to say that your oil finish has proven to outperform all the wood finishes I’ve used in the past. It’s very easy to use and makes maintenance a breeze. Thank you for making it more available and easier to purchase. Please send me another gallon."
