Finishing exotic hardwoods containing natural oils

cameron bowes · Jan 6, 2019, 11:32

I am finishing some wood boxes made from Padauk wood. I also use other woods like Purplehart which are oily. I would like to try an oil finish like the Osmo products. I have used Tung oil and furniture wax in the past. What can you recommend?

Thanks

Hello,
Osmo's Polyx oil is an excellent product, there is also the oil preventative uv # 410.

We also have the Secondo de Prato-Verde

The Osmo website suggests using Polyx-oil extra thin for oily tropical hardwoods such as the woods I am using (padauk and purplehart). You do not seem to carry this product. Would it suffice to just thin the product you carry? By how much and with what?

thanks

Cameron,

To finish your boxes you can use Osmo Wood Wax Finish clear # 3101.

You can dilute it slightly with Finico's odorless thinner (5%)
