Walrus Oil's Furniture Finish is a curing oil made of Polymerizing Safflower Oil with Vitamin E and a hint of earthy scent vibes added for freshness. Ideal for hardwood chairs, dressers, picture frames and other woodworking projects that call for a curing oil, our Furniture Finish brings out natural colors and drys to a beautiful matte finish. Simply apply oil, dry for 24 - 48 hours, and wipe away excess. Fully cures over time, usually by 4 weeks. Store in cool and dry place.
Made from a variety of Safflower Oil that has historically been used as a major component in floor sealers, varnishes, and paints. Our Safflower Oil contains the highest concentration of linoleic acids in plant oils and a high iodine number, allowing the oil to polymerize (double bond) when it comes into contact with oxygen when applied to wood. Although curing period can be longer than other oils, it's a highly effective alternative to linseed and tung oil which often cause "yellowing." It's also one of the least likely of nut-derived oils to effect those with sensitive allergies, it's biodegradable, and contains no harmful additives or accelerators. We recommend using one coat of oil and only applying additional coats after its dry to touch.
Shelf stable when properly stored and used by expiration date.

Best Furniture finish!!
I tried a few different brands of “easy” to use, natural furniture finishes. NONE of them compared to the ease of use as Walrus Oil! And the finish from Walrus Oil was by FAR the best of them!!!
Great for all projects
Don’t be alarmed by the name- this oil is great for all projects from cutting boards, turned bowls, to shelves. I personally used to use linseed oil on my turned bowls for its polymerizing qualities, but since trying this oil it’s my new go to. It has no smell or taste which is a huge plus for me- a lot of customers complain about this with linseed oil. I encourage everyone to give this finishing oil a try, the price is super affordable compared to most finishes, and I think you’ll be stoked on the results.
