have been using kunos white for years on lighter woods (mostly white oak and hard maple). it is the closest to a naked bare wood appearance finish that i come across to date. far more green than its competitors - you can smell the difference when you open the can - but performs just as well. can't imagine using anything else at this point.
I've tried other finishes and Kunos is the best for applications. LOVE IT !!
I've used almost every type of finishing product for my woodworking projects and Livos has been by far my favorite! Its user friendly to apply, durable, easy to clean up, non-toxic, and environmentally safe! I've been so happy that its my new standard finish that i offer to clients!
I've tried countless finishing products from wipe on oils, to spray finishes, waxes, etc. & I haven't been more happy with a finishing product! Its user friendly, easy to clean up, smells great, & I love how its environmentally friendly!
As a professional cabinet shop, we generally use a sprayed on conversion varnish for our finish, but were requested by our clients to use the Livos Kunos finish. Everyone in our shop felt that the Kunos went on easily, & it came out looking great, with a very natural look & feel. The finish was used not only on the kitchen & other cabinets, but also on the fireplace mantel, window & door trim, & other millwork. The clients were very happy, as were the general contractor & the paint sub-contractor. It's nice to have a simpler, more user-friendly finish product in our shop, & we won't hesitate to recommend it to future clients.
