Questions & Answers

Is this a necessary step before refinishing?

I am refinishing my dining room table and using the refinisher to strip the current finish. Is this a recommended step before applying a new finish?
Asked by: Rgarber
Absolutely. If you try without stripping you will most certainly regret it. Most tables have been waxed or had furniture polish and this will prevent your new finish from adhering.

Is this product non-toxic?
Asked by: beachguy
I have just used this product to finish the new butcher block countertops in our kitchen and understand that it is a recommended product for such application. Tung Oil is a 'natural' product (pressed from the seed from the nut of the tung tree) and I have seen no reference to it being toxic. I had no hesitation in using this product and am very happy with the finished result.

Asked by: Gary
We appreciate your interest, Gary! Rust-Oleum Watco Tung Oil is not a food-grade coating. If looking for a food-safe finish for wood, we recommend Rust-Oleum Watco Butcher Block Oil instead! https://www.homedepot.com/p/Watco-1-pt-Clear-Butcher-Block-Oil-4-Pack-241758/205113777 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

1 qt. Tung Oil is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yikes!!! After expensive removal of old varnish/stain and 7 hours... Yikes!!! After expensive removal of old varnish/stain and 7 hours of sanding on my 35 year old oak table refinish project, I stained the wood (which was very dense because of its age) and applied this Tung Oil. In the past I had used a different brand that was like polyurethane, just apply, let dry, steel wool, and repeat. So my BIG MISTAKE was not reading the directions! I used it like other Tung Oils. So when I check the following morning on my first coat, the oil was sitting on top of the wood, still greazy and the stain had bubbled up into the oil!!! When reading the directions I realized it was only supposed to be on the wood for a short time then wiped off. THIS TUNG OIL IS ONLY MEANT FOR NEWER WOODS THAT ARE STILL QUITE POROUS! I ended up having to wipe it off, apply mineral spirits to remove what I could (and the bubbles of stain), and then re-sand the ENTIRE table AGAIN! I then applied a polyurethane wipe on finished, which worked great and helped me finish the project. Lesson learned, again. Always read the directions, and don't use this brand of Tung Oil on older-dense wood pieces. It needs to be use on only porous wood that will accept the oil into the grain.

Finish is written with fine print, I should have done my home work better. Even in the request to review, Home Depot uses the language: "How many stars would you give Watco 1 qt. Tung Oil?"

I needed to refinish some outdoor mahogany and wrought iron furniture chairs. I sanded the wood and then used the tung oil. The tung oil was easy to apply and the furniture looks great.

Found the tung oil very easy to apply to new butcher block countertops and it dried to a very acceptable result and color. Used a french polishing-style applicator comprising a lint-free cloth wrapped around a wad of cotton wool. Applied initial coats outside, so that attracted some minor dust, etc during prolonged drying period. Would be better applied inside in a relatively dust-free environment. Counters required minor sanding before the final coat - applied inside. Multiple coats will take some time to dry and harden, so don't expect a 5 minute end result. Expect days rather than minutes for the finish to dry to a usable state.

Yes it is much slower than a spray BUT it is so much more durable and you have much better control over the shine. I used to use it on gun stocks for high shine and durability. Now I make wood projects. I have photos of 3 projects. The one with the cactus is a napkin holder not quite finished with 3 coats on it. The vase has 4 coats and the bowel has 5 coats. Yes, you rub it in, let it set and wipe off each application. It takes work but so what? if you have pride in your work it is well worth it.

I used this product to treat a new unfinished butcher block slab that I also purchased from Home Depot. The product is easy to use and has a really nice finish. The problem is the fumes it throws off during application and after it dries is unbearable. I gave the butcher block two coats in my garage and then brought the item in my house after two days of drying and my entire house smells of noxious fumes. For this reason I do not recommend and will not use again.

I have used Tung Oil for many years, as a pre-finish treatment to bring out the beauty of the wood and as a finish on items that need extra protection. It takes a little extra work to do a Tung Oil finish but the results are amazing!! This product definitely meets my exacting standards and is always provides a consistent finish.

However I could not find it in a smaller container than 1 quart. I use it for small projects so I don’t use it up rapidly. As a result it turns to an chunk in the can before it is used up. It would be nice if it came in a pint can.
