i'm a houston, tx based furniture maker / designer and have been using linn for several years now to finish my solid american black walnut builds. this finish yields an absolutely stunning result with the species. matte to semi-gloss finish depending on number of coats. i find only 2-3 is sufficient, from which i typically get a eggshell - satin sheen. the dark oil has a tendency to deepen the color pallet a bit whilst still maintaining the natural aesthetic of the timber. so glad i stumbled across this stuff.
beautiful natural finishing product with beautiful results.
