F.A.Q.'s | Overview


What kind of finish should I use on my unfinished kit?


Over the years many of our customers have sent us emails telling us how they finished their kits. Most of our customers were happiest with natural finishes, coming from Danish Oil and Weiman Lemon Oil. These oils will require upkeep, but are a natural choice for those who don't want to permanently coat their kit with varnish.

Others have opted for satin polyurethane finish which gives the look of a naturally oiled finish but with longer lasting results.

One can also use the Ashford wax polish as the only finish or to protect and add luster to any stained or finished wood surface.

Please carefully and fully read the instructions that come with whatever finish you choose. Most of the finishes discussed here are potential fire hazards.
