Odie’s Wood Butter contains a higher proportion of wax than Universal Oil, so it has a thick, paste-like consistency and buffs to a higher degree of polish, yielding a satin sheen.
Like the oil, it produces an attractive, durable, non-toxic finish for interior and exterior applications, and is suitable for any wood species, though it works particularly well on dense, oily exotics. It can be used to top coat Universal Oil to increase sheen and durability, and to rejuvenate other oil finishes.
A blend of natural oils and waxes, it is free of solvents and VOCs. Application is straightforward – simply work it into the surface using an extra-fine abrasive pad or cloth, and leave it to soak in for 1 to 2 hours before buffing.
It enhances the figure and deepens the color of the wood, and though a low-build finish, it has high resistance to liquids, sunlight and abrasion. Only a single coat is required; for greater protection, additional coats may be applied. No sanding is needed between coats, making the finish easy to renew or repair.
Exceptionally high-yield, it provides coverage of approximately 190 sq.ft. per 9 oz jar, depending on the porosity of the wood. Drying time is about 24 hours; for contact with food or liquids, allow 3 to 5 days to cure fully.
