Available Finishes: unfinished, hand rubbed with linseed oil and beeswax (most popular), hand rubbed teak oils, or hard wax oils (on oak wood only). Unfinished is a great option for people looking to finish it themselves or for some people that are chemically sensitive. Adding a finish can help add protection to the wood.

Hard Wax Oil colors available for Oak Furniture: (click on picture to see larger version)
European hard wax oil is used because it does not contain petrochemicals so it is VOC-free. It does not stink like big box store stains which require respirators to apply. The hard wax oil is plant oil based and, like the linseed oil and teak oil finishes, is applied to the wood, allowed to soak in and then wiped to remove excess oil. It does not cover the wood texture like paint but rather collects more in the grain and brings out the patterns and beauty.
