What Wood Finish is Best for You?

With all our Nomad Furniture, you have a choice of receiving your furniture finished with Danish Oil, Unfinished, finished with pure Tried and True Oil or with a brown walnut stain on the Oak (only).  

Let’s Look at Your Options:

Danish Oil ~ $0

The standard furniture order is finished with a hand rubbed, Danish Oil unless otherwise specified at check out or on your customized order over the phone.

Nomad Furniture uses Watco Danish Oil. This finish brings the wood alive, it enhances the grain and depth of color; and, protects against water, kids, fingerprints and dirt.

Danish oil consists of a mixture of Tung oil and a varnish. It penetrates into the wood, unlike a film finish, which sits on the surface. That penetration gives a depth to the wood's grain that's hard to achieve with a film finish.

There are chemical “dryers” in the Watco product that allows the oil to dry quickly. All the wood is completely dried, of course, before it is shipped.

Unfinished ~ $0

Some people with sensitivities prefer to receive their furniture unfinished. It will of course be sanded, but there will be no oil applied. You can request that your furniture comes to you unfinished. Please make a note at checkout in the Comment Box at checkout if you want unfinished.

The standard furniture order is finished with hand-rubbed, Danish Oil unless otherwise specified at check out or on your customized order over the phone.

Tried and True Oil ~ $30

For those concerned about sensitivities, this is an excellent choice. This pure oil finish will protect your furniture like the Danish Oil and give your wood a satin sheen without appearing glossy. Furniture can also be finished the old fashion way with Tried and True Oil.   Tried and True is pure linseed oil with no solvents or metallic driers in it.

This is a custom order and this order needs to be placed over the phone at Northern Naturals. 800-778-2998

Walnut Stain for Oak ONLY ~ $30

For those who wish a deeper brown look on their furniture, the Oak can be finished with a Watco Walnut finish.

    I am moving into new space July 1. It is quite small but ample with 2 leather chairs and mission sofa plus armoire (with TV).
    I would like to have a cot frame (with mattress kept in closet for guest) which can serve as an off-to-the side (separating dining area) or coffee table. My furniture is dark oak, mission style.
    What height would be best? What configuration of slats or platform? What might you envision from your experience?
    I look forward to working with you.
    Can the finish be suitable?
