Every now and then someone comes along and invents a better mousetrap.  Well, James, the inventor of Odie’s did just that.  The products he invented and offers for sale are second to none, in fact, they are superior to any commercially available products anywhere.  James is himself a woodworker and is thus familiar with all the products claiming to be the best only to be disappointed later.  For the record, this stuff is the BEST, bar none.  Period.

Odie’s was developed for flooring.  Imagine the abuse a floor gets, now imagine how well it will protect your precious furniture!

It can’t be stated enough… most commercial finishes are 90% thinner and 10% product.  James’ stuff is 99% product and just enough thinner to make it possible to apply.  Seriously.

Caution: don’t snooze putting any of the products on thinking you’ll buff it off much later.  You will fight it and cuss the whole time.  The finishes ARE that tough and superior to any we have experienced in our lifetimes.  We use it on everything.  The bonus is that none of his products require protective gloves, and is food grade safe, PLUS all the products have a wonderful citrus odor which leaves the shop absolutely pleasant to occupy.

Note: If you mess-up, all is not lost.  You need only to reapply Odie’s, wait 20 minutes and then buff it off.  It really is that simple.

For some time, Westphalia Wood Works have used nothing other than Odie’s Finishes.  The results are spectacular and the finishes allow the wood to come through without that “plastic look”.  To that end, I won’t be using other finishes unless it is explicitly required (after a polite argument) by a client.

Below are five 2 minute videos by James describing his products:

The following is a 12-minute “how-to” video on how to apply Odie’s Oil:

I’ve had a number of great conversations with James over the telephone, and he’s a great guy with a passion for woodworking and for producing first-class products.

Lastly, we get no compensation or considerations from Odie’s and we offer this information freely ONLY because the products are that good.  We use all the finishes and waxes exclusively, achieving spectacular results that our clients rave about.
