To repair any scratches, nicks, or water marks: Use 0000 grade steel wool to buff out as much of the affected area as possible. Then, use a lint-free cloth to apply a small amount of the Varnish Oil to the damage wood. Follow the normal recommended application directions. For watermarks — if damage is severe, sand water mark away using fine grit sand paper until it is smooth and even with the surrounding surface. Reapply the Varnish Oil to the water mark by following the normal recommended application directions. Remember to always protect the wood surface using coasters or anti-scalding devices.

  • Tried & True Danish Oil is an all-purpose, 100% natural and food safe traditional oil finish. Pure high-grade, fast drying linseed oil without any drying aids (aka heavy metal salts).
  • Proprietary heat treating process turns raw flax oil into Danish Oil. 100% renewable, safe for skin & food contact. No need for PPE or ventilation while using. Petrochemical Free, Heavy Metal Free.
  • Gains a patina as it ages. Truest Danish Oil formula, as they would have been made 125 years ago! Great for users new to natural oil finishing or those that want a classic simple hand rubbed finish. Use on raw iron, earthen floors or any other project that traditionally calls for pure linseed oil.
  • Perfect finish for live edges. Excellent primer for other Tried & True products. This product can be applied over other natural oil finishes and penetrating stains. Can also be a base coat grain enhancer prior to pouring epoxy.
  • Tried & True products have infinite reparability and will last longer than a lifetime when properly maintained. No yellow plastic flakes as they age! These are 100% solids (no fillers, no solvents) so a little bit goes a very long way.
  • Give it a good stir before you apply.
  • Apply a very thin coat across entire piece with a lint-free cloth at room temperature. A dry to wet color change in the wood should occur. A little bit of finish will go a long way! Do not use a brush.
  • Allow Varnish Oil to penetrate the wood for a minimum of 60 minutes.
  • Rub in briskly with a lint-free cloth until the surface is completely dry. Do this before you let the piece cure! Drying/curing issues will occur if this step is ignored!
  • Allow the piece to cure for a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Burnish with a soft cloth or 0000 steel wool BEFORE EVERY COAT (even the first and last). The more you rub the surface, the better the sheen will look.
  • Additional coats will deepen the sheen and increase protection.

Danish oil

Works great. Used it to finish a curly maple guitar. Results were amazing. Easy to use. I was in in small workspace with pilot lights to worry about so really needed the no odor non flammable . It really fit the bill. Use thin coats and the more coats the richer it looked . Don’t forget to burnish in between coats . Buffs out to nice luster doesn’t darken as much as I thought until about the third coat but then it really brought out the flame in the wood . Just ordered the varnish for scratch protection and to do the ash pickguard that I don’t want to darken .wish I had ordered them together. And for my purpose I wish it came in the smaller size .i only had a small surface to cover and it really goes a long way.
