How do you use a Waterlox butcher block?
Hereof, is Waterlox safe for food?
That's a Waterlox finish. Waterlox Original Tung oil finishes are water resistant, stand up to household spills and are non-toxic1 and food-safe when dry. Waterlox Original Tung oil finishes have good heat resistance, can be used around stoves and are unaffected by boiling water and liquids.
Also, how do I get a smooth finish with Waterlox? Start with Two Coats. I start with two brushed coats of Waterlox, which saturate the wood with finish and establish a foundation for the padded coats that follow. After brushing, I smooth the wet finish with a cotton rag, to remove drips or puddles and leave a wet, even coat.
Simply so, what do you use to apply Waterlox?
How to Apply Waterlox Original to Wood. Step 1) Pour some Waterlox into a clean glass container. Using a good quality 2 inch foam brush dip it about 1/3 of the way into the Waterlox. Run the tip of the foam brush over the edge of the glass container to remove a small amount of Waterlox to prevent drips.
Should I sand between coats of Waterlox?
Waterlox must be coated with at least 12 hours of waiting time between coats. It is not necessary to abrade or sand lightly between coats, but if any of the coats are rough or have dust in them, light sanding is recommended to improve texture. Waterlox is a paint-thinner based finish; use paint thinner for all cleanup.
