Perfecting & Polishing a Tung Oil Varnish Wood Finish on American Walnut

Here’s Part 2 of 2 on this series of Finishing a Standing Height Desk. While it has a modern, urban kind of look, this video series focuses on how I accomplished the finish. This part walks you through how I applied and polished a tung oil varnish on a solid walnut desk top. It’s a pretty easy finish to apply, as in it’s not complicated, but it does require some time. But in the end it produces a gorgeous hand-rubbed appearance but with a good, hard protective coating. On walnut, it especially looks exquisite, too. Enjoy!

This finish may not be the most durable or the cheapest, but it feels the most natural to me.
