Product is what was expected. Shipment a bit on slow side. Maybe because of Christmas holidays
Impressed with company so far
I have not used this yet. However I am impressed with how quickly the product arrived and note from the company in my shipment. I am exploring new ways of finishing my woodworking projects & appreciate their willingness to answer any questions. You don’t find that level of customer service much anymore.
Use it all the time. Where's my sticker with last order by Joel? Just Asking.
Love the look and feel
First I have to say I E-Mailed the Co. so I knew what product I needed for my butcher block counter tops. They were very helpful. I also watched a few youtubes. I had put min oil mixed with beeswax the first time and it was about time to put a new coating on my counters. I didn't like with the beeswax that it didn't really cure all the way and if I set a pc. of paper on the counter it would get a greasy looking. The first thing I was asked was what grit sandpaper did I use. I re-sanded starting with a 220 but the beeswax gunked (I think that is a word) up the sandpaper so I used a 120 to start and then finished with a 220. The counters are nice and smooth. On a Sat I put down my first and only coat. Water doesn't get on this section so I figure 1 coat is good for that area. I have 2 more sections to go. It did take 4 days till I couldn't smell it any more. I did put on a heavy coat and rubbed it in with a genealogy glove. Day 2 I smoothed out the wet areas. Day 3 I took a picture and used the buffing pads. Day 4 I just toughed it to see if it felt day. I did say to dear husband, Can you smell it?? Some place it was said that it will have no smell when it was cure. It did take 4-5 days here in WI (Oct 2023) for it to have no smell. Dear husband put the microwave back on the counter. I am very happy. It takes some time but so far I am very happy. I will send pictures when the job is 100% done. It does take a while to dry but worth it. I am planning how I can do around the sink area. It is only me and dear husband so we could grill for 5 days and use paper plates. Would I choose this and do it again?? Yes I am very happy with the product. I did not mix this with any thing. I wish I would of used this product when we first installed the countertops.
The Pure Tung Oil was a great product to work with. Easy to apply and no fumes to deal with. Beautiful natural finish. Great choice.
