Penofin Verde is an Earth friendly wood finish made in California from 100% sustainably produced natural oil from the pod of the Brazillian rosewood tree. It’s a petroleum free oil finish with no heavy metal compounds, no odor, and no offensive fumes. It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. I tired it on an outdoor bench in carved white oak, that I made for the Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, Vermont. I also tried it recently on a birdhouse with carved cherry roof, which I made for a show at the Wharton Esherick Museum. I was very pleased with this finish. It’s very easy to work with, has no smell or nasty solvents to worry about, and it brought out the full warmth, depth and richness of color in the wood.
The folks at the Penofin headquarters in California have added me to their Partner Program, and have added a page to their website featuring my work. They have also featured my work on their facebook and twitter pages. If you’re looking for an environmentally sustainable furniture piece in sustainably harvested wood with a Penofin Verde finish, give me a call and let’s talk.
Here’s some photos of the outdoor bench and the birdhouse:
