What Is Odie's Dark? // Odie's Oil Products 

How to Apply Odie's Dark on Flooring | Non-Toxic Wood Finish 

Odie's Dark Oil (ODO) is a remarkable rich dark finishing oil, containing naturalreactive and oxidizing oils that darken wood. Food safe, solventfree and non toxic, containing no added driers, heavy metals or part 2 catalyst.

Odie’s Dark Oilrichens and darkens wood, not only when applied but with age, exposure and in reaction with the naturaltannins in wood. ODO protects, stabilizes, beautifies and enhances any wood surface easily, safely and naturally. ODO penetrates, cross links and bonds molecularly, becoming one with the surface. It does not sit on top as a shell or film like many conventional finishes. It cures fast and hard while also remaining flexible. This means it will never peel, flake, chip, delaminate, wrinkle or leave unsightly white scratch marks or cracks! The dark depth and rich patina are such that results cannot be duplicated with a stain. Odie's Dark line of finishes create incredible contrast, blacks pop! Odie’s Dark contains natural UV inhibitors, helping to protect from the sun's harmful radiation. Odie’s Dark Oil will actually get better with age, becoming more durable and beautiful.

Recommended for interior use on any wooden items like doors, floors, tables, countertops, fine furniture, bowls,toys and more! Great for all species of wood, exotic and domestic. Formulated to work on even the oiliest of woods. Great for white oak, walnut, cherry, mahogany, ebony, wenge and more! Odie's Dark Oil is greatfor wood turners and can be used as a friction polish!

Wipe on, Wait a while, Buff off. Easy! A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY! USE SPARINGLY. "No solvents" means there is almost nothing to evaporate, so what you put on the wood, stays in the wood. Odysseus Cornwall’s finishes cover many, many times the area of other wood finishes. Up to 20 times the coverage as conventional finishes.


9 oz reusable glass jars

Approximately 21-25+ Sq. Ft per oz on typical domestic hardwoods (ie:cherry, walnut, maple, 
Approximately 14-18+ Sq. Ft per oz on softwoods (ie:cedar, pine, fir)
Up to 35-50+ Sq. Ft on dense exotic hardwoods (ie:rosewood, purpleheart, brazilian walnut, jatoba)

-Stir or mix well as ingredients may settle overtime
-Calculate how much oil you need for your project based on wood species. Apply sparingly to a non woven pad (rated equal to or just higher than your last sanding grit) and work the oil into the surface using circular motions. The friction from the application process helps to loosen up and drive the oil into the surface. Remember a little Odie’s goes a long way, do not over apply!
-Once the finish has been thoroughly worked into the surface, allow to set up for approximately 10 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the surface applied to (45-60 minutes typically being the ideal time for wood) For surfaces like leather, metal, plastic, stone, epoxy and concrete, you can buff off almost immediately after application. Do not allow the product to set for more than 8- 10 hours, this may result in a reapplication with Odie’s Universal Oil to reactivate the finish for a proper buff/wipe off.
-Now it’s time to Buff Off and remove any and all excess/residual oil from the surface until dry to touch. Take a clean terry cotton towel and scrub the surface clean, making sure to regularly flip to a clean section oftowel as it gets loaded up with oil. Switch to a clean towel if/when needed. If you can swipe a clean finger across the surface without leaving a mark, you are done!
-Most surfaces can be handled almost immediately and lightly used within 24-48 hrs. Please allow 3-5 days cure time before being subjected to standing liquids.
-Additional coats of your favorite Odie’s finish, Odie’s Universal Oil, Odie’s Wood Butter or Super Duper Oil can be applied using the same easy steps as above. We recommend waiting a day between coats with the exception of Odie’s Waxes, if top coating with Odie’s waxes, ideally, we recommend 3-5 days cure time.
-For non porous surfaces like epoxy resin, metal, stone and polished concrete much less oil is needed in the application process, please see coverage metrics

The only way to wear the finish away is to wear the surface away itself. If and when the time comes for some maintenance, whether it’s your floor, a countertop, tabletop or cutting board etc, simply clean the surface (check out to clean your Odie’s treated surfaces here) and apply another light coat of your desired choice of Odysseus Cornwall’s finish as per their instructions.

    I use Odie's oil on all the furniture I build. I include a small amount with all the things I make for my clients. You should make a sample size I could buy to give my clients.

    Transitioned to using Odies Oil as my primary wood finish. It seems expensive up front but it will last for a long time. It smells great, easy to apply. It just takes a while for a full cure. But nevertheless I love this product!
