This dark raw tung oil is our favorite wood finish!

Tung oil is all natural, contains zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds), and is FDA approved for food surfaces. This is a green, biodegradable finish.  First discovered by the Chinese in ancient times, tung oil is made by cold pressing the seeds [nuts] harvested from a tung tree. This tree can never freeze and thus it only grows in moderate climates in South America and Southeast Asia. The Chinese used tung oil to seal and protect wood, plaster, metal, and even masonry.

Tung oil is available in different grades. Lower grades of tung oil are dark green or yellow. The highest grade, Grade 1 Yellow, is transparent in shades the color of honey. This pure tung oil contains no additives or petroleum distillates. For dark raw tung oil, we add a natural hydrocarbon resin pigment to pure tung oil. This pure tung oil dries fast and cures to a long-lasting, durable, finish.
