What is a Natural Finish

This term refers to finishes that do not make use of artificial stains or dyes. Typically, natural finishes dry clear so as to highlight the natural color of the wood while also providing a layer of protective coating. Finishes made from tung oil, mink oil, linseed oil, and other natural compounds can even help to bring out the organic color variations within the wood. Many finishes of this variety are eco-friendly and are made entirely from natural ingredients. Natural finishes, however, can be difficult to remove and offer varying levels of protection; be sure to select one appropriate to the environment in which your cabinetry will be installed.
