Odie’s Oil product range

Odysseus Cornwall’s outstanding oils and waxes have been manufactured in the USA since 1982. Unhappy with the look and risk of exposure to the chemicals and toxins of conventional chemical industry finishes, founder James Tinghitella set out to develop a safer alternative to the mainstream offerings.

Originally developed for natural wood flooring, it soon became apparent that Odie’s Oil was perfect for all wood products from flooring to toy makers.

Naturally effective with outstanding coverage

Odie’s Oil is a UV stable, non-toxic, food-safe, one coat, naturally effective interior and exterior wood finish and stabiliser. The coverage is outstanding – up to 20 times the area of conventional wood finishes. A little really does go a long way, and such, it’s ideal for all types of woodworkers, furniture makers, crafters and turners.

Odie’s Oil utilises the discipline of biomimicry by using the finest oils and waxes produced by nature to protect your wood surfaces. These oils and waxes have evolved in nature to protect plants from the constant bombardment of the elements, insects, fungi and other bio-organisms.

The oils and waxes in Odie’s Oil are at home in the wood because this is where they originally evolved. Odie’s Oil is the most natural and effective way to finish a wood surface by bringing you the best of nature, today’s technology, and the time-tested knowledge of ancient masters.


Infinite uses

This single, amazing finish can be used anywhere and is so easy to apply that almost anyone can use it with success. Simply wipe on, then buff off; it’s as easy as that!

What’s applied to the wood stays in the wood. The timber’s surface and pores are completely saturated with oils and waxes in the product, so there’s no room for unwanted water, moisture or stains from wine, oil, grease, juice, saliva and sweat, etc.

Odie’s Oil contains no solvents, hardeners or driers; it’s VOC free, so almost nothing evaporates from the application during the drying process. There’s nothing harmful and no unpleasant smells, which means it can be applied without needing gloves or PPE.

Mr Cornwall’s Creative Colours

In addition, the product range also includes Mr Cornwall’s Creative Colours – 100% pure, finely ground powder pigments, refined from the earth’s natural metals. These offer an almost infinite colour palette when applied with Odie’s Oil. They’re fully oxidised and completely stable, so won’t fade over time. As such, the possibilities are endless.

Additional coats can be applied depending on wood species and desired visual effect. Users are encouraged to experiment with application. Virtually no maintenance is required, and any damage is easy to repair. Odie’s Oil stands up to the competition, and wins! Find out more by visiting the website: www.odiesoil.co.uk.
