Pro Finishing Tips

  • Avoid rushing your finishing, particularly with oils.
  • Clean the dust off the piece before applying, particularly open grained woods.
  • Apply with paper towel.
  • Apply with the lathe stationary.
  • For the best finish, remove excess oil from the surface before burnishing dry to a finish.
  • Lightly de-nib the surface between coats before adding more oil; remove the excess before burnishing.
  • After a few coats, and allowed to harden for a few days, the citrus finish is water and oil resistant.
  • Can be used with the Intrinsic Colour Collection.
  • If using as an embellishment rather than a finish, apply the oil before any sealer.
  • Ensure the product is completely cured before applying any further finishes or putting into use.
  • Firmly replace the lid after use.
  • Store in a cool dry place out of direct light, away from heat sources and protect from freezing. BS EN71-3:2019 is a UK standard. It may not be accepted outside the UK
  • Flammable. Lay saturated towels or cloths flat to cure before appropriate disposal. Do Not Pile Them Up.
