A True Oil Finish
Nontoxic and easily repaired, this traditional finish is still worth considering
Chris Becksvoort has used all the oil finishes available today and finds Tried and True, available since the early 1990s, to be the best. It also has the added benefit of being nontoxic with all the attributes of an oil finish: spot repairability, easy application and maintenance, quick build of finish, and fine patina.
