I'm looking at floorboards in a new construction - I like the natural appearance of timber, so someone has suggested we go for a tung oil finish. I've heard (not seen yet) that it looks great, and has a matte finish which is what I'm looking for anyway.
Just wondering what other people's experiences have been? I've read that tung oil is a "drying" oil, whereas all the poly finishes are essentially dry from the start. I'd expect to reapply every few years, and that's ok. Are there any other wear / tear issues I should be aware of? Is a "drying" oil just a good way to collect dust?
