Will this work on MDF?

Asked by Will May 16, 2021
1
Answer

Happy to help, Will! Rust-Oleum Watco Danish Oil can be used on bare wood. Since the species and cut of the wood will affect the final appearance and color, we recommend applying in a test area first to ensure the desired results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Would this work on wicker?

Glad to lend a hand. Rust-Oleum Watco Danish Oil is recommended for use on wood surfaces only and would not be able to penetrate or dry in wicker correctly. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Answers

Yes sand it all off. Then the stain, then the oil, you will probably have to do a few coats of the oil to get where you are trying to go. Hard to say without seeing the wood. Also, after using the 80 grit I would try maybe a 220 grit after just to smooth it out a little.

Is this product designed to clean oil finished hard maple?

Answers

Yes, works well on all woods. I use on both Woodturnings and furniture. Follow application notes because this oil does penetrate well. I have been using Watco products for years. Enjoy.

Answers

I've covered stained wood with Watco Danish - yes, as long as it was stain only (not a stain with any poly in it). Make sure your stain has completely dried. Then follow directions on the can. For best results, follow that with a good quality wood wax. You won't have much luck staining a finish you've already applied Watco to (or any oil finish). The Watco should come last.

Can I use this on teakwood? If not-what should I use?

Asked by Andbeck February 19, 2019

Answers

Yes I believe you can. I used it on a hardwood outdoor furniture set and it worked great. It absorbs very well like teak oil but leaves a semi permanent finish unlike teak oil that you need to reapply every year.

One coat is sufficient to seal the wood; the second coat will add greater durability and any touch-ups are easy.

We like how you think, Donna. Rust-Oleum Watco Danish Oil Finish is a unique blend of penetrating oil & varnish that stains, seals, and protects in one easy step. Danish Oil penetrates deep into wood pores to protect from within and to enhance the natural look of the wood. Keep in mind that this product needs to be applied to bare wood in order to perform properly. Ensure the wood is dry and that all previous coatings such as paint or varnish are completely removed.

Very easy to apply, brush or rag. I do lathe turnings, product cures from inside out instead of drying on surface then into the wood. Gives a deep natural look to the wood. You can also apply other finishes over it if you wish.

I was looking for a finish that would not drastically change the color of the barnwood I found. As an added bonus it “locked in” the flaky, dry wood so it will not shed on the towels. I was skeptical before starting but the result was outstanding.

My go-to finish is Danish Oil, and Watco is the best of the best. I've tried the different tints - and natural is my favorite. Simply wipe/brush on your sanded/prepared surface, let it sit a few minutes, then wipe off excess. If the piece feels fuzzy or the grain was raised because of the oil, sand lightly after it dries a bit, and go again. The directions say to repeat, and I do occasionally, but once is usually enough. After drying - follow up with a paste wax for best protection.

Watco products are great. They seem to be better quality for the money versus more hobbyist brands. I have used this product on mostly hardwood materials and bamboo. It is less shiny than competitor's products, durable, and repels moisture. All Watco products are good-Tung Oil or Teak Oil, I like their Danish Oil because it comes in various tints and gives same protection. I sell wood related products for corporate promotions and gifts, Danish Oil finishes impress customers with look and feel features.

This is a great oil finish to bring the life out of your piece of wood. I used it for jewelry boxes and the results are superb. I like the light oil feel. Some oil are very heavy. You can easily wash it off if it gets on your hands. However it will not wash off once it gets on your wood piece. There is little to no smells. You can use a paper towel to wipe it on or use a lint free cotton towel or rags. If you want deeper darker color just apply a few coats. What I do is put on a coat wait 15 mins wipe off excess. Wait an hour apply 2nd, 3rd etc coat. I don't see any difference after the 3rd coat however so I don't do any more applications after the 3rd one. I've been using it for about a month now and it almost all gone. When I get more I'll definitely get the bigger size one. Don't forget to shake the can before using it. And the cap can be a pain to get off. Be careful and don't spill it. See the before and after photo of my jewelry box.

This oil is easy to use and makes natural wood look great. I used it to oil a pine piece of furniture that I built and it went on easily and didn’t allow me to over-apply it. The natural grain and beauty of the wood is brought out with this oil. The best part is that it does not smell like a lot of the varnishes and other heavy chemical products do. The only drawback (which is a minor one) is that the top is hard to get open. Safety first!

Virtually goof proof
Pretty easy to use. The hardest part is getting the top off. I found flipping off the plastic child proof helps. Brings out the grain beautifully and gives a light protective coat without a plastic feel. Not overly keen about the colored oils, but I do mix a dash of the walnut into the natural for a touch more contrast.
