Feb 14, 2014 Going green. We've got some news folks...we're switching our finish to a more eco friendly no VOC oil/plant base product. We've been testing it over the past 12 weeks and have been very happy with the results. Its an oil finish that is primarily made of bee's wax and mineral oil. Its a very unique product and it provides an incredible finish, one that is soft to the touch, pleasing to the eye and provides great protection for pieces that are heavily used. The product is Rubio Monocoat natural oil. Rubio also has great maintenance products for helping to protect and extend the longevity of the finish. We recommend utilizing their "Refresh" product for cleaning and basic maintenance. It can be ordered online from various providers for around $10.00 to $15.00. Here is a link to the info for Rubio's "Refresh" : http://www.rubiomonocoatusa.com/rmc-refresh.aspx Also, here is a link containing the info on it's green nature as well as LEED info. http://monocoat.us/Monocoat-Is-Green/ We're always happy to send finish samples, let us know what wood species you're interested in and we'll send you a sample of any of our finishes. We're very excited about this finish and know you will be too.
