Circa 1850 Tung Oil

Circa 1850 Tung Oil is a ready to use finish made with raw tung oil, and does not contain any other oils, resins or varnish. Tung Oil, extracted from the nut of the oriental tung tree, has been used for centuries to protect and beautify wood. Circa 1850 Tung Oil penetrates deep into the pores of wood to strengthen the wood fibres. It provides the low-lustre,hand-rubbed finish you would expect from a master craftsman. Circa 1850 Tung Oil protects wood from accidental spills and water marks.


Avoid working in direct sunlight or wind. Circa 1850 Tung Oil is only to be applied onto bare, stained, or previously oiled wood surfaces - never over any other type of finish. Use Circa 1850 Furniture Cleaner to remove dirt and polish. Apply without dilution. Wipe on Tung Oil using a lint-free cloth. Let the oil penetrate for at most 10 minutes and then wipe off the excess with a clean cloth so that a thin coat remains on the surface. If little puddles form soon after you have removed the excess finish, continue wiping every 10 minutes until no new puddles form. Let dry for 24 hours. To smooth out the surface between coats, buff lightly with Circa 1850 Finishing Pads or steel wool (0000). Apply a second coat in the same manner as the first. To obtain a finish that is a bit shinier, a third and fourth coat may be applied, always waiting 24 hours between coats.
