A natural finish is a type of wood finish that preserves and protects the wood without changing its color through the use of stains or dyes. Instead, natural finishes allow the natural color and grain of the wood to show through. Typically, natural finishes are transparent or clear and are applied in thin coats to achieve the desired level of protection. Natural finishes can be made from a variety of materials, including oils such as Tung oil, mink oil, linseed oil, or mineral oil. Some natural finishes can also enhance the natural color of the wood, bringing out its unique features and variations. Natural finishes can be applied to both raw and stripped wood surfaces and can be reapplied over time to maintain and enhance the wood’s natural beauty.
