5 REASONS TO TAKE LIVOS TRAINING FOR APPRENTICE CABINET WORKERS

Livos impregnation oils are unique products on the market. In addition to being a finishing product that protects both the inside and the outside of the wood, these oils are healthy for the environment and your health. Since many handymen regularly ask questions about the application of oil, Livos Canada has decided to offer training for cabinetmakers and Sunday DIYers. In our article, we tell you why you should not miss this opportunity!

REASON Nº 1: DISCOVER LIVOS PRODUCTS

Everyone who tries Livos products adopts them!  If you often work with wood surfaces, you will appreciate Livos finishing oils. They are very different from what is offered on the market. First of all, it is an impregnating oil, which means that it penetrates into the pores of the wood. Its protection is therefore very different from other finishing products, such as varnish, which seals the wood instead of letting it breathe. Another undeniable advantage of Livos oils: they are composed of natural ingredients, which respect the environment, but also your health.

Did you know that impregnating oils have several advantages, including increased protection, great covering power and a natural finish? After the training given by a cabinetmaker, you will know all the benefits that Livos oils provide.

REASON # 2: LEARN OIL APPLICATION TECHNIQUES

During the training, a cabinetmaker will introduce you to  the good and bad techniques of oil application . Application methods differ slightly depending on the type of wood or whether it is an interior or exterior surface. Why is this training a “ must”  before launching a cabinetmaking project? Quite simply because it will allow you to avoid many mistakes!

One of the most common missteps is spreading the product as if it were varnish. The method of application between these two products is quite different. Indeed, a small amount of oil is enough to cover a large wooden surface. To know the quantities to use, rely on  our online calculator . During the workshop, you will be able to see with your own eyes  the impressive covering power of Livos oils ! By attending a Livos training in your area, you will also learn more about the tools to use.

REASON Nº 3: PUTTING LEARNED TECHNIQUES INTO PRACTICE

Theory is good, but the practice is even better! During the Livos training, you will immediately be able to test the learned techniques. Moreover, we strongly suggest that you bring a wood sample in order to experiment with the different Livos products for indoors or outdoors. You will be able to use the different application tools. Have you ever applied oil using a cotton wick? This is your chance to put this tool to the test! You will quickly see that the sensation and the results are very different than with the traditional brush.

REASON # 4: RECEIVE PERSONALIZED ADVICE FROM A CABINIST

If you have a project in mind, you can ask all your questions to our cabinetmaking expert. He will be able to advise you on various subjects, whether it be on finishing products, assembly of wood parts or surface maintenance.
