Austin’s Wood Butter is a timeless recipe used for centuries to provide a lustrous, low-sheen finish to wood, metal, plastic, and leather projects. Why is it called “wood butter?” Because it leaves the surface feeling as smooth as butter! It’s deep penetrating formula is completely food safe and non-toxic so it works great for any type of project.

Made from a unique blend of all natural tung oil, beeswax, and a proprietary blend of essential oils it is naturally mildew and fungus resistant so it can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Simple Application

Not only does it provide a beautiful finish, but the application is stunningly simple. Simply apply with a scouring pad or cotton rag (a little goes a long way), buff into the surface, wait about 45 mins, and then buff the surface clean removing any remaining product with a cotton rag. 3-4 coats is usually sufficient for a long lasting protective finish. Let it dry overnight before use or 72 hrs before exposing to weather.

When the finish needs renewing there is no sanding needing like on film forming finishes. Simply clean the surface and apply a fresh coat. We recommend annual application for exterior projects and as needed for interior projects depending on use.

Austin’s Wood Butter contains tung oil, a natural drying oil, that generates heat as it cures. Therefore, rags, steel wool, or waste soaked with Austin’s Wood Butter may spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. Immediately after use, place rags, steel wool, or waste in a sealed, water-filler, metal container.
