Oils, varnish and stains

Recommended Posts



I've just started my first build and am looking for info on how to finish the wood. The outsides will be painted, however the inner hull planking will be seen but I like the colour of the wood used so I just want something that will protect the wood over time and prevent warping of the wood or peeling if the glue wears out. I'm thinking long term future here.


I'm currently thinking tung oil as it seems quite popular but I would like some advice on the difference between oils and varnishes and the main pros and cons of each.
