Circa 1850 Terra Nova NaturOil Customer Questions and Answers

Question

How long does the oil take to dry? Applied it a week ago and the wood still leaves oil residue on paper.

Asked on 12/16/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

You should only let it sit over night. Rub is into the surface with a soft towel or buff to seal the oil finish.

Answer

We only use it on open pore home furniture. It sounds as if there are 2 possibilities here: the customer is using it on wood with a non-porous finish so that the oil is not being absorbed into the wood or the customer is pouring too much oil so that it is ponding and not absorbed into the wood.

Answered on 12/16/2014 by RICHARD MARKER

Answer

I usually rub it in lightly. Depending on what type of wood grain you are treating some may take longer. Mine was birds eye maple and it took quite some time as the density is very hard. Either way, the product is safe and natural and that is why I bought it.

Answered on 12/16/2014 by GLENN BRAND

Answer

It does take a long time to dry, probably less in my desert climate than anything farther east. I don't know where you are. I found that for my cutting boards, I went back and applied a light coat and then rubbed and rubbed with a dry cloth until I got tired. That second application over the sticky surface, plus all the extra rubbing, seemed to do the trick for me.Otherwise, I really like this oil for its kindness to the wood surfaces in my kitchen (cutting boards, knife handles, etc.) and recommend it to everyone I know who cares about our environment and what we put in it. Hope this answer helps!

Answer

I let the product penetrate the wood for about 20 minutes then I wipe what is left. I had to problem with residue.

Answered on 12/16/2014 by ANTOINE JANSSEN

Answer

This product is applied by hand and rubbed into the wood. Wipe off excess. Sounds like you still have an excess on the wood, rub it in and wipe dry.

I didn't eat it so I didn't pay attention. Works great...have used it many times!!!!

Answered on 07/27/2016 by MIKE IMOBERSTEG

Answer

Thanks Mike. Looking to use it to care for a cutting board, want the wood to be free of animal products (I suspect the oils may be derived of fish - since you can have Kosher fish products and I haven't seen a lot of vegan items identified as Kosher - probably no need.

Answered on 07/27/2016 by stephanie wood

Answer

I wouldn't know more than what the label says. Seems probable that it is vegan friendly based on what it says, but you'd have to ask the manufacturer.

Question

Does this dry to the touch or does it stay oily? Would this be a good finish to put on a wooden baby rattle?

Asked on 05/19/2015 by Johnny Hughes

Top Answer

It does not dry to the touch but is absorbed deep into wood grains. I can't say for any certainty that using it on a wooden baby rattle would be acceptable due to health standards for babies. Personally I would not let a baby or child place the rattle in their mouth for a variety of reasons.

Answer

Its purpose is to keep open pore wood lubricated. It is not oily at all but the wood does feel less dry, as it should. I don't know enough about its makeup to know if it should be ingested by a baby.

Answered on 05/19/2015 by RICHARD MARKER

Answer

Hi, Johnny. I wish I could answer your question, but I have only used this on cutting boards and knife handles. I'm not certain I'd use it on a baby rattle, since the little ones insist on chewing on them so much. For the cutting boards, they are in use so often I've never noticed if they're really dry to the touch; and knife handles, ditto. Used and then washed right away and so I'm not certain what that means for the finish. They don't feel slippery, but then, I'm not chewing on them, either. I hope someone can answer this question more fully for you! Good luck! And how sweet of you to think of making a baby rattle.

Answered on 05/19/2015 by JULIE SOBCHACK

Answer

Since it is oil, the product will initially be oily. We use it on butcher block and it eventually absorbs in.

Question

what is square footage of product?

Asked on 01/18/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Interesting question, but I can't give a definitive answer. I used the stuff to restore an antique 18" diameter butcher's block. I put three coats on over a period of 2 hrs, and it looks great. As for coverage -- based on using about a fifth of the bottle -- I'd say you could soak about 24 sq ft of porous wood, much more if the wood has been treated within the last 50 yrs.

Answer

In other words, how much does it cover in terms of square footage? Depends totally on hominy coats and what type of wood you are treating. Can you be more specific in your question?

Question

Would this oil help on floors that are creaking? The flooring is an engineered hardwood, only 3 years old but with each step they are very noisy.

Asked on 06/26/2020 by Gwen from Penticton, BC

Top Answer

I don't think so. It is intended as a protective finish. The creaking happens because there is not enough space allowed for the wood to expand.

Can I use this product on teak furniture?

Top Answer

Yes. I have older danish teak from my mother and also newer teak from Asia( I think). I use a micro cloth to put on the oil and then with a cleaner micro cloth rub off. A little "elbow grease" is required. Love the product.
