What's the difference between the various oils for woods - Danish, Tung, Teak, Finishing, etc. I've made a wooden item for Xmas presents and it could well get left out so if any finish an oil would be best but which one ?

Many Thanks, Jon - I went to the chemist for paraffin oil and was asked what is was for as it's no longer recommended for human use. They looked at me slightly oddly when I told them why. They had a couple of bottles left from old stock. I got a recommendation from this forum some time back for the initial coat for babies' rattles to protect the wood if the child proof coatng was penetrated. Useful to know there is still a source around.chipmunk":3akc9swv said:Hi Rob,
Be my guest. Glad it was of some use to you and hope it will be to others.
Rustins make the best Danish oil IMHO but for others I'd go for Chestnut every time. For liquid paraffin, the cheapest non-drying crystal-clear oil, try a farming outlet.
