Livos for furniture.
More and more woodworkers are turning to the Livos products to use on their furniture. They are loving the natural lustre it gives their beautiful pieces as well it's natural, non offensive smell and the fact that it's completely non toxic!
A lot of wood turners and hobbyists are using the Kunos natural oil sealer and Kunos countertop oil now especially for children's toys and chopping boards as they are both certified food safe!
If the piece of furniture is already painted or stained, you will need to sand it back to bare timber. The oil cannot impregnate timber that is already treated with another product. When sanding, initially sand between 120-150 grit to allow the oils to penetrate. Sanding too fine "glazes" the pores of the timber, therefore not allowing the oil to penetrate. One can then sand finely between coats if desired.
To treat the furniture piece, apply the oil with a cloth or brush and leave it to saturate for approx 20 mins then remove the excess. (Some oils are also available in different colours or stains.) KALDET or tinted KUNOS oils can be used instead of painting to achieve a different look. Whilst the oil stains impregnate, they are still penetrating oils that allow the timber grain to be seen.
