Butcher block finish
« on: August 08, 2021, 03:49:40 PM »
 

 

Has anyone else discovered this finish?

 I have a friend that swears by it and uses it as his “go to” finish for
Most things. 
I have used it once before on a very dark wood and really like how it went in and rubbed out. 
But this is my first try on maple. A little goes a long way!

It’s a German brand, but woodcraft has started carrying it. 

Here’s a pic of the back of the can.

Thanks. I’ll pick some up the next time I’m over near the local woodcraft. Looks like a real different formula. Worth a try.

Look forward to feedback.  Looking for something to try on some towel racks that can be applied after glue up.  Something water resistant that does not require sanding would seem to work well.

I’ve been told that it is similar to Rubio Monocoat, but less expensive.

I've been seeing this all over Youtube from the regular woodworking channels I follow.  Seems like really good stuff.

I haven't used the TopOil yet but I have used these similar Osmo finishes.  They do a good job.




I started using Livos maybe two years ago on turnings and wall art.  I recently started using them on my stools.  So far I think the best and easiest oil finish to apply on the market.  Its another one from Germany.




Only available from Livos USA

I digress a bit.  A lot of world class woodworkers used some really cheap finishes.  Sam Maloof comes quickly to mind.  Makes me wonder about the cost of some of these finishes.

WDH,
The Osmo oil I posted is a veggie based oil. 
After two coats, I really like how it handles. 
The owners of this countertop -I’m refinishing it for them- wanted something eco friendly and that they could touch up themselves. I believe this will work for them.  
Here is what I started with. At some point the maple was stained and a heavy, heavy topcoat was applied. Also, the sink cutout doesn’t look right. Too much overhang. The third pic show the finish delaminating around the faucet. 


 



 



   

I didn’t take any pics, but to remove the finish, I ripped the whole thing down into three pieces, then sent it all through the planer and glued it back together. I wanted to make sure to get under ANY contamination so there wouldn’t be any adhesion issues. 
I do what the little voices in my wife's head tell me to do.

And after sanding…


 
Unfortunately, there are some water stains around the faucet holes that just would plane out.

might try some wood bleach (oxalic acid) near the faucet.  this appear and sounds like the "hard wax oil" that @tule peak timber turned me on to.  great finish, and easier to reapply than a top coat finish.
