As most of Clint’s comments or replies are trite, arrogant and inciting, I hate to agree with him, but he is correct.

Teak oil does not come from teak wood. It was created to be a restorative oil finish for wood used outdoors. Danish oil was created to easily duplicate the oil finishes of Scandinavian furniture. Most tung oil finishes contain little or no tung oil from the tung tree in China (also called China wood oil). Only products listing or being labeled as pure tung oil can be trusted to actually contain any. Depending on type and brand, all oil finishes contain linseed oil, driers, solvent and/or some type of resin.

Clint is biased in his opinion of oil finishes, so I take the rest of his comments about them with a grain of salt
