My Woodcraft catalog arrived and I noticed they are now listing Tru Oil as a "New" product. This is good for you folks who use that product for finishing because it gives you yet another good source. I've always found Woodcraft be a very reliable supplier of quality materials. They are obviously expanding their product line to meet customer demand..
I bought my Tru-Oil at the Woodcraft-affiliated Woodworker's Club in Rockville, Maryland months ago. Retail store in the front, fully equipped membership workshop in the back. My wife belongs. She's the actual woodworker in our family.
Bob: Try-oil can be used to finish the entire banjo. It is easy to use but requires several coats (the more the better). Wayne Sagmoen, for one, uses it on his banjos. Great finish - not shiny but durable. If you have a wear mark, just put some more on. I've used it on some woodworking projects.
I get Tru-Oil from Brownells in Iowa, larger bottles & comes in a spray can too.
Yes, thanks for mentioning that. I noticed that Woodcraft is also offering Tru Oil in a spray can....although I can't imagine why one would need to apply it that way when it's otherwise so easy to apply out of the container.
Thanks, Rudy, for the Dick's Sporting Goods tip. They're just now opening a new store in our local mall and I will check it out .
I have found that Tru Oil is usually a little less expensive through gun shops than through Woodcraft. That said, I love Woodcraft. I teach classes and do demos locally, and that's something you might look into if there is a Woodcraft store in your area.
