Can we send you color samples of our hand rubbed oil finish ?
As a wood finish, we use Velvit Oil, a specially formulated product that stains, fills, seals, protects, and beautifies all in one coat. Two coats are applied to give more luster and depth to the wood, then a Lemon Oil polish is rubbed in. .Oil finish is resistant to alcohol, hot liquids, common stains and will never crack, or peel. Choose from: Natural, Fruit wood, Danish Walnut or your special mix.
