Odie’s Oil is a 100% natural, food safe, solvent free, non-toxic hardwax oil finish. You’ll be astonished how little you’ll need to get a beautiful, durable finish. In one of the Odie’s Oil video that the Odie’s founder posts on their website, he finishes an entire table with under 1 oz of Odie’s Oil. As he says, “The biggest mistake is using too much.” Depending upon the density and porosity of wood, a 9 oz jar might cover as much as 400 square feet.

To use, stir the contents of the jar thoroughly with a tongue depressor or popsicle stick to emulsify. Dampen a woven non-abrasive pad (like our BearTex White pads) with some Odie’s Oil then wipe the oil clinging to the tongue depressor onto your workpiece. Is this conveying how little product you need? Go over the workpiece again with the pad. Make sure you haven’t missed any spot. You will barely need to re-saturate the pad. Work in the pad with the Odie’s Oil then smear a bit from the tongue depressor onto the table. Go over the table again with the same pad. Make sure you haven’t missed anything. Give your work an hour or so to set up, then buff with a terry cloth. (A decommissioned towel is good for this purpose.) That’s it!

The concept behind Odie’s Oil is “what is applied to the wood is what stays in the wood.”. The wood surface and pores are completely saturated with the oils and waxes in the Odie’s Oil that is applied, so there is no room for unwanted water, moisture or stains from wine, oil, grease, juice, etc! Odie’s Oil contains no solvents, so almost nothing evaporates from the application during the drying process. The wood pores remain saturated with oils and waxes.

If you want to enhance the sheen, you can top the Odie’s Oil with Odie’s Wood Butter or Odie’s Wax.

Note: Oil soaked rags can spontaneously combust. Dispose used rags in a sealed container. As with all Odie’s products, a little goes a very long way. Odie’s Finishes, including the Odie's Oil, can be used on virtually any surface, including wood, concrete, clay, marble, brick, metal, plastic, leather, and epoxy.

Comes in a re-useable glass jar. Domestic Ground shipment only (cannot be shipped by air).
