Products Used: Tung Oil, Citrus Solvent


I finished my walnut butcher block island with pure tung oil and citrus solvent. I used a total of 5 coats, starting with a 3:1 dilution of citrus solvent and pure tung oil. A yearly reapplication of a 1:1 dilution buffed to a low sheen keeps the wood water resistant. The finish has a beautiful velvet sheen.
