A couple of months ago, Brazilviking posted a thread where he wanted a comparison between a product of Brazil, Peroba Oil and Tru-Oil. He asked if anyone wanted some to make the comparison and I volunteered. As we know sometimes life plans other than our own and it took a while to actually do the experiment. But I finally got around to it. On the 3rd of this month I informed BV that I had completed my test on the two products on samples of multiplex, Bamboo flooring and some Cedar. I sent them on and 3 weeks later he has not received them. I contacted him and explained that I had indeed sent the package, which I was assured would arrive in 7-10 business days, obviously had not. Lost in the mail or grabbed by customs I can't say. BV very graciously forgave the fact and suggested that I do a photo comparison. I agreed and this is it. The samples done with the Peroba oil have a very nice matte finish that brought out the colors of the wood in a warm fashion. The Peroba Oil goes INTO the wood and protects it quite well. The shiny samples are Tru-Oil that makes a protective coating ON the wood and plays up the grain of the woods. I cannot say that one product is better than the other, each accomplishes a different and and each is very nice. Here are the samples that got lost in the mail. <a href="http://s1298.photobucket.com/user/flipgun/media/IMG_0055_zpsdc71489b.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1298.photobucket.com/albums/ag55/flipgun/th_IMG_0055_zpsdc71489b.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_0055_zpsdc71489b.jpg" style=""></a> <a href="http://s1298.photobucket.com/user/flipgun/media/IMG_0053_zpsf2401997.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1298.photobucket.com/albums/ag55/flipgun/th_IMG_0053_zpsf2401997.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_0053_zpsf2401997.jpg" style=""></a> <a href="http://s1298.photobucket.com/user/flipgun/media/IMG_0058_zpsb40a0556.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1298.photobucket.com/albums/ag55/flipgun/th_IMG_0058_zpsb40a0556.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_0058_zpsb40a0556.jpg" style=""></a> I guess I should have mentioned that the samples kindo of stuck together.
