I would not recommend using bees wax over Tung Oil.

Answered on 05/14/2012 by NORMA R. CAUBLE

Answer

Not sure. We refresh with a light coat of oil.

Answered on 05/15/2012 by DENISE GORDON

Answer

I don't know. Sorry. I don't use anything other than the oil.

Answered on 05/14/2012 by PATRICIA SMITH

Answer

I use Circa 1850 tung and teak for everything I make.. alone it leaves a nice soft shine at 2 coats and begins to really shine a 3+..... then finish with 2 thin coats of MinWax Paste Finishing Wax ... more shine and now no worries about spills... and I have 5 kids. just remember that if you want to "re-oil" you will need to remove the wax, turpentine will do that , and then a light steel wool buffing , reoil .. then reaply wax.

Answer

It would if you want a natural unfinished look

Answered on 02/15/2013 by ALVIN FORD

Answer

I can't imagine why it would not... however it would be an expensive choice and would require multiple coats. Usually a good quality urethane would be the preference for flooring.

Answered on 02/18/2013 by JAMES SAUNDERS

Answer

Dear Dave, I use tung and teak on oak and hickory FURNITURE ... I have never used it on a floor. on the furniture I have seen excellent results .. smooth and after the second coat a light shine .. 4 coats makes my work glow. In reading the description on line ( at their website) I did not find this product reccomended for the floor as it penetrates and bonds to the wood internaly ,,, great for water protection not for wear ... If I needed to protect a floor I would suggest/use a "surface bonding" product like polyurethane or a hard surface finish like a spar varnish as both of these would hold up to foot traffic... Hope this helps Joe K

Question

Is this safe to use on Butcher Block or oak kitchen island counter top?

Asked on 07/29/2012 by Jason Doiron

Top Answer

I wouldn't. I don't know what the health issues might be using it where food is but mineral oil works well for food/butcher block. Tung and teak leaves a beautiful finish. I use it on floors (pine) and every summer I coat with two or three coats. It is beautiful but I find that ammonia and citrus eat through the finish. When I get spots I just touch up with stain and then the tung and teak. Good luck! Betsy

Answer

I can't image that the Tung n' Teak is food safe...I wouldn't put it on our countertops (we have mahogany counters). For our counters, we use Howard Feed-n-Wax - a beeswax and orange oil polish and conditioner. I've used it for years and the counters are beautiful. Hope this helps!

Answered on 07/29/2012 by J. MICHAEL ROBERTS

Answer

I WOULD NOT THINK SO AS FOOD WILL BE DIRECTLY IN CONTACT WITH THE OIL..

Answered on 07/30/2012 by ALVIN FORD

Answer

I don't think you want to use this on a surface you intend to eat off. I would stick with mineral oil for butcher block finish.

Question

What about this product for INTERIOR TEAK?

Asked on 08/12/2011 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

We used this teak oil on a very dry teak dining room table that had come from Denmark in about 1968. My husband applied about five layers of oil and, after each layer had dried, polished the wood with a very fine steel wool. The table looks wonderful. It doesn't look like brand new but the oil filled in most distressed areas from spills, water rings, etc. It made a big improvement for us and we would recommend the product for folks with a similar problem.

Answer

Circa 1850 Tung 'n Teak oil product is primarily for new wood but can be used to rejuvenate and touch up itself or other finishes. Since it is oil with solvent it can be used over any type of paint but always test in an inconspicuous place first. Solvent can damage some types of finishes. We use Circa 1850 Tung 'n Teak oil or Circa 1850 Tung oil on everything we make, from rental house kitchen cabinets to toys. These are the only finishes we use for 99% of our projects. The mix is slightly darker and makes red oak absolutely gorgeous. We use this stuff by the gallons If your project is teak wood with an oil finish you probably would be happier with StarBright or Amazon teak oil also found on this site. Rule of thumb. "Oil floats on water" so you can use oil over water based finishes but you cannot put water based finishes over oil.

Question

I applied a first coat on a new table. The oil is already absorbed by the wood. Do I still have to wait 24hrs before applying the 2nd coat or could I apply sooner?

Asked on 06/12/2013 by Nicolas Kuzyk

Top Answer

Nicolas -- not an expert. I waited 24 hours. I applied it 3 times. My dresser came out really nice.

Answer

True oil finishes like Teak/Tung oil are never sticky. If the 'oil' finish is sticky it is probably thinned varnish not an oil finish. Most "Tung oil finish" products do not contain any Tung oil, including Formby's. I don't always wait 24 hours but the parts are in a warm very dry room. When there is no oil residue left when I wipe my finger across the surface I apply another coat. I've never had a problem, but to be safe it is always best to follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Answered on 01/26/2015 by dh dh

Answer

You can apply a second coat as long as there is no sticky residue from the first..

Question

how do you use this product? I have followed directions (put on liberally, wait 10 minutes, wipe off, wait 24 hours) and every time comes out differently - most of the time it comes out totally dull, no shine. Other times it comes out really glossy.

Asked on 12/14/2016 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I now have half of my teak table with a bright glossy shine and the other half is absolutely dull, no sheen at all. Both applied the same way but at different times. I now have about 6 coats on the dull side. Tell me, do you wipe it off after 10 minutes like the directions advise? or do you just ensure it's not pooling and then leave it?

Answer

I use this product on jewelry boxes that I make out of natural pieces of mood. I love that it soaks in very quickly. You can also control how much sheen you get by adding more coats. Do have to be careful of pooling around cracks and knots. After wiping off I will go back every 20 - 30 minutes to give it a quick rub to avoid the pooling. Love this stuff for the small objects that I use it on. Never tried it on anything large like a table or kitchen cabinets.

My use is for indoor teak furniture. Is there a better Teak oil for this use ???

Asked on 03/25/2015 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

If your furniture is real teak wood I would recommend using natural teak oil to maintain the natural color and look.

Answer

I don't know if there is a better teak oil to use. I can tell you that I used it on the deck of my 1994 Chris Craft Holiday and I really liked the result. I did use two coats because the wood was bare and it was a little blotchy after the first coat. Some area's soaked up more than others.

I want to use this product on my red oak hardwood floors can I put an oil based stain in the oil to give it more colour

Asked on 07/21/2017 by Dinah from Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada

Top Answer

You would be better off to stain the wood first, then apply the oil. If it is already finished and you are going on top of a finish you should try a sample first to see how it comes out.

I used it for outdoor teak furniture so I can't give you an answer about how it would stand up on teak decks. It works fine on the furniture in the Texas Hill Country which is not a very rainy area.
