RUSTINS DANISH OIL - Rustin’s DANISH OIL is a special formulation based on "Chinese Wood Oil" also known as "Tung Oil" This natural oil is extracted from nuts, similar in size to a Brazil nut which grow on certain species of trees found mainly in China and some areas of South America. 
The special ingredients allow Rustin’s Danish Oil to penetrate deep into all types of timbers, drying to a hard durable and water resistant seal. The ideal oil to bring out the beauty of all timbers and give a natural low lustre finish to all types of furniture, woodwork, woodturnings & woodcarvings.
