Oil finish


Most of our floors are prefinished with a lacquer or oil that shows off the attractive qualities of the wood, whilst also providing an extra layer of protection. Each coat is meticulously cured through a gradual natural process, allowing for natural air drying between applications, resulting in a rich and long-lasting finish that exudes a sense of opulence and refinement.

Adding the finishing touches to a Woodworks floor takes an incredible amount of time and patience. Worked in by hand, the prescribed finish is allowed to dry slowly between coats. While adding a lacquer-based finish to your floor provides a durable naked finish, our oil-based finish impregnates the wood with ease offering great regeneration. Every consideration is taken when partnering our woods with the perfect surface to complement each feature and assure lifelong durability.

A durable, natural finish that combines oils to deeply penetrate into the pores of the wood. The weight of the hardwax offers maximum protection and leaves a deep lustre to the surface, reflecting light well and emphasises
grain, texture and surface undulations across the floor.

Transparent, soft-feel lacquer that maintains the original ‘unfinished’ look of natural wood, avoiding the warm organic tones associated with natural oils and waxes. Natural air drying allows us to build much heavier coats, creating a deep and durable finish that looks and feels luxurious.


This lacquer-based finish has a transparent patina that has low levels of light reflection. Oilwood Traffic gives the floor a warm and soft appearance due to the oil element, making it well suited for dark to brown toned floors.
