Most folks think wood finishing is tricky business, but I like to keep things easy in my woodworking shop and I use this same three part oil wood finish on almost every piece I build. This easy to make wood finish recipe is also easy to make and apply, and dries quickly allowing multiple coats. This method requires the least prep work (goodbye sanding) and is also unbelievably easy to repair, fix any scratch or dent in your furniture finished with this same oil, and all you have to do is scuff the surrounding area and wipe on more finish. You also don’t need a whole bunch of other finishing supplies for this method, no spray booth, no special finishing room, you just dust off your bench and wipe it on. Even the fumes of this finish are very mild! Because this has been my favorite wood finish for so many years of projects, it’s the best wood finish I can recommend. Also, you get a sneak peak of my upcoming democratic chair build!
