Rustins Danish Oil
DANISH OIL - An oil finish, suitable for all types of wood. It differs from Teak Oil in that it contains special ingredients, which prevent it drying to a gloss. It is an easy to use wipe on finish, which brings out the beauty of the timber and gives a natural, open grained, soft lustrous finish. Ideal for all woods and is excellent on turned woodwork. Danish Oil is a unique formulation developed by Rustins.
The easy wipe-on low lustre finish for all types of wood on all interior and exterior wooden surfaces including doors, dressers, cladding, garden and indoor furniture, window frames, turned woodwork and more. Apply liberally with a clean rag or brush and wipe off the surplus oil after a few minutes for a natural low lustre finish. Danish Oil is a special formulation developed by Rustins Ltd. It is based on Tung Oil, also known as Chinese Wood Oil.
The oil is extracted from nuts, similar in size to a Brazil nut, that grow on species of trees found mainly in China and some areas of South America. After processing the oil is blended with synthetic resins to improve hardness as well as other vegetable oils. Driers and solvents are added to improve the performance and application properties, so that Danish Oil may be applied with a rag or brush.The special ingredients used in the manufacture of Danish Oil penetrate deep into all types of timber, drying to a hard, durable and water resistant seal. Unlike varnishes it does not leave a thick film on the surface which may peel, chip or craze on ageing.
The oil dries quickly in 4 to 6 hours, depending on ambient temperature and humidity, producing a non tacky surface. It does not, therefore, pick up dust as will wood treated with linseed oil.

Absolutely no skill is required for application, as even when the oil is applied with a brush, it does not have to be brushed out in the same way as a varnish. The brush is merely used to spread the oil liberally over the surface. Danish Oil will bring out the beauty of all timbers and give a natural open-grained soft lustrous finish. The natural colour of the wood may be altered by staining with Rustin's Wood Dye before applying Danish Oil. The Wood Dye can also be added to Danish Oil to make a tinted oil.
Finish sanding your woodturning with 320grit or finer, on some woods you can improve the final finish by sanding up to 500grit. . Then to your finely sanded surface with the Lathe stopped......
1. Apply the oil liberally with a rag or a brush.
2. Let soak in for just a few minutes, then wipe off any excess.
3. Start the Lathe and burnish dry with a soft dry rag.
4. Repeat steps 1, 2 and 3, allowing time between coats for the oil to dry.
5. To produce a beautiful burnished polished finish..... apply a final coat of oil with the lathe running, put a small amount of oil on a rag and with light pressure at first, spread this coat out over the work, gradually increase the pressure keeping the rag moving, then change to a clean dry rag and burnish the surface to a smooth polished finish.
