    sanding to at least 400, 600 or a higher grit.
  3. Apply the oil using a paper towel and allow
    to penetrate the wood for a minute or two;
  4. Remove excess oil from surface;
  5. With the lathe spinning safely fast, use a
    paper towel to burnish the oil dry;
  6. Recoat as required.
  7. May be overcoated with wax or lacquer when
    properly cured.
  8. Use within 12 months of purchase for best

~ Uses

Ideal for use on items requiring a satin finish. Also suitable for fruit and salad bowls.

~ Colour and Aroma

Pale translucent brown in the bottle. It will not overly darken the wood surface when applied. It has the aroma of citrus fruits, which dissipates as the solvent dries. The piece is suitable for use when the aroma has completely gone.

~ Storage

Store in a cool, dry place, ideally between 10° and 30°C (50° and 90°F) Where possible. Protect from extreme heat and freezing. Keep out of direct sunlight.

Kept according to instructions, you can expect the product to last around 12 months from opening, depending on how often it is used. Left alone, it is very slow drying.
