How durable is the Tung Oil finish?
The Tung Oil finish is surprisingly durable. Tung Oil has incredible qualities. Michael has worked for the last three years to perfect the finish he uses. Not only is this finish “green” and all organic but Michael’s blend of Tung Oil actually smells good! Tung Oil does not crack or peel because it is an oil not a plastic or varnish. Tung oil does not need to be stripped off before adding another coat. The more Tung Oil is applied to the furniture, the more lustrous and beautiful the finish becomes. The Tung Oil finish waterproofs and conditions the redwood.
