  1. Wax: Wax isn’t a good option to use directly on furniture. It’s better to use paste wax over lacquer or shellac.
  2. Oils: These include Linseed oil and Tung oil. By boiling Linseed oil and later mixing it with chemical additives in order to speed up the drying process, it provides a good finish on wood. Tung oil is also available in boiled/heat-treated form or more specifically, polymerized form. Heat treatment actually enhances the durability as well as drying process. Tung oil & Linseed oil penetrate the wood fibers and then harden.You can remove the excess with a rag cloth. It can be applied easily on furniture.
  3. Varnishes: Varnish is more durable as compared to oils. It is also easy to apply. Also, it is quite resistant to heat, water and chemical solvents. Varnish can be easily applied with a brush or a rag. You can DIY it on your home interior.
