Instruments That Have Nuts in Them

Violin Varnish
Classic Violin Varnish
For violin varnish, linseed oil and walnut oil are most often used in combination with resins. The oil is prepared by cooking or by exposing to air and sunlight. The resin is typically available as a solid, and is then "run" by cooking or literally melting it in a pot over heat without solvents. The thickened oil and prepared resin are then cooked together and thinned with turpentine into a brushable varnish."

"The ebony fingerboards on our Deering banjos are not covered with a finish. They are treated with a light coating of almond oil. You can but it at the grocery store or the hardware store.

To clean your fingerboard, rub it down with a clean cloth that has a light coating of almond oil on it. Rub the oil into the wood, and remove any excess on the fingerboard."
