Not what I expected
Wanted to add a light protect to a pine vanity, for a bathroom, without a heavy sheen. After researching, tung oil seemed to provided this. After 1 coat, which went on easy, and a buffing, the piece ended up quite different than anticipated. It went from light colored wood to almost black in color. The feel is very satiny which is nice. After 4 days the smell is very strong with a fan running and the color hasn't lightened, as I hoped it would, while drying.

    It looks great on a new oak bookcase I built. I applied 2 coats per the instructions. It does have a strong odor. It looks like it may take a week or more to dissipate the smell. I don't know yet how well it will hold up with time.

    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.

    I have been using Tung Oil for over 45 years and love it. 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 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.

    should be called long oil alkyd
    This has about as much tong oil as a jolly rancher has fruit. This is not food safe. It shouldn't be called tong oil if it isn't tong oil. Used 80 grit with an electric sander to get it off.

    Thank you for reaching out and sharing your feedback, June. We do not recommend Rust-Oleum Watco Tun Oil for surfaces that will have direct contact with food. If wanting a food-safe wood finish, we recommend Rust-Oleum Watco Butcher Block Oil instead.
