  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 results.

~ 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.
