Odie's Oil
« on: March 15, 2019, 12:43 PM »
Anyone using Odie's Oil for a finish? Looking for some real user feedback.

Lot's of hype on instagram but I don't really trust most of the social media hype.

I'm currently using Osmo polyx and overall I'm pleased save for a couple of minor nitpicks.

Thanks in advance.

Ron

We started using it and really like it.  Started on a walnut table and the client picked it over a poly wipe on and a General finishes clear.

I hadn't used it before so we weren't sure about how it would hold up.  Put it on a board and did everything we could imagine to it from heat, to cold, to water, etc.  Let water sit on it for hours. 
Nothing affected it.

Did a dinning room table with it and they love it.  Ended up having to fix a couple spots before we gave it to them and it was pretty easy to spot fix.

Used it on my daughters computer desk and it is standing up pretty well. 

I just used it on my desk and it turned out really well.  Started my desk on Saturday, ready for finish Monday afternoon, and in my office Monday evening. 
Less than an hour to put the oil on, let it sit, and then wipe off.

Sanded to 400.

We found it was easiest, and best, to use a festool pad on our sander, and buff it into the wood.  It likes to get warmed up to soak in and it is easy with the buffing pad.

It just takes a tiny little bit to cover a good amount.

We also used the butter on a couple things on top of the oil putting it on the same way.  Gives it a little more shinny finish where the oil is more flat/satin but feels really good.

I ended up calling them up and asking about a sample.  They had a dented can and gave me a good deal on it.

Autocorrect does some funny things.

I've used it on 4 projects.  As for as how it's held up, one is amazing, one is ok, and two are mediocre. I used the exact same technique on all 4.

I know of a few Canadian shops that have stopped using it due to the inconsistency in how it's holding up.  The owner of Odies seems like a real jerk on social media, super defensive and rude to anyone who questions or has a problem with the product.

Thanks every one. I'll probably just stick with what I know. Stuff is too expensive to get to just try out.

Amazing one was walnut
Ok one was walnut and paduk
Mediocre ones were walnut and parota.

Parota table top only held up for 4 months or so, looks horrible now.  Walnut one absorbed differently across the heartwood to sapwood.  Left dry looking spots, which should not happen with 1 coat of SP Oil, 2 of regular oil and 1 of wood butter.

I used it on a dining table (black limba) and I would say it's "OK". would I use it again? Probably not, I think next time I will go with Osmo.

I’m curious, which Festool buffing pad are you using? I’ve applied Osmo and Rubio by hand, but I always though a buffing pad on my sanders would work better.
