Oli-Natura Review & Comparison

Care of CARL DUGUAY and Canadian Woodworking

They do an excellent job of highlighting the natural grain features of wood.

Carl on the general use of hard wax oil.

Carl had the opportunity to test out Oli-Natura Hard wax oil and see how it fared against other brands, Rudio, Osmo, and Saicos. Here’s a quick snippet but we encourage you to check out the full article if you are wavering in the face of trying out the oil yourself!

Oli-Natura is imported from Germany. For those who favour a somewhat glossy, higher-sheen finish, Oli-Natura is a good choice. It’s the faster product to use – it dries in a couple of hours and cures in a couple of days – and it’s the most economically priced. Like Rubio, it’s sprayable without having to add any thinner. I also like that the container it comes in has a screw-on spout cover rather than the more standard paint can lid. It’s only available in a 1L size, and currently there is only one Canadian distributor, located in BC, so shipping cost will need to be factored into your purchase.
