The Original Formula Polymerized Tung Oil is the first product that Sutherland Welles Ltd.® ever formulated. It’s a perfect choice for creating the finest hand rubbed finish. This product can be used for many different projects.
Medium Lustre is the best choice when your goal is to create a semi-gloss sheen. The higher percentage of Tung Oil fills the pore quicker and builds more sheen with the same amount of coats as the Low Lustre, typically four on most wood species. The higher concentration of oil in the product also offers more protection.
