This is pretty awesome. Not sure why anyone would complain. I bought this in the walnut and it's exactly what I wanted. I refinished a gorgeous table, sanded it down and then wiped on the walnut. The attached pics are the before and after just one coat. Going to do 2 coats and top with a clear coat. One tube was enough to do one heavy coat on the table top - it's 37" x 84" and almost 3" thick.
The stain is easy to apply and starts to really penetrate and set in quickly, even with woods that aren't all that porous. It's also easy to apply evenly. You'll need to do at least two applications of the stain to get close to the color on the squeeze tube but once you get the darkness of color you want it's really good looking. You could do one application and let it sit to get the same look, and it'll look nice, but it'll be kind of gummy. I would have given 5 stars but the squeeze tube itself is kind of annoying as the valve is very stiff. What that means is you'll squeeze...and squeeze a little harder...little harder and then PPPPFFFFTTTT a big squirt comes out, so get ready to adjust your application method for that.
I have an easier time by unscrewing and totally removing the cap from the tube. The product will squeeze out more easily and provide more control. Superb for freshening up the oil stain on baseboards and other trim work, which retained a deep stained look and not a painted look. Also can be used over wood filler, so that it blends with surrounding wood with standard wood stain, which makes the paint-like property of this product a benefit. So many uses for certain diy projects.
