This is a great product. However, I would not recommend ordering it via amazon. It was not well-packaged, and was leaking when received...unfortunately to the point that the leaking product caused damage in my home prior to discovering the leak. One thing you don't want is a stain product leaking through the box! It will ruin whatever it comes into contact with. Repair cost was signficant. I attribute damage to the lid loosening, and nothing to prevent the liquid product from leaking. Buy this product, but not through Amazon! Amazon packaging was negligent for a liquid chemical product. Amazon also packaged this in the same box with a pet nutritional product...not wise again.
I bought this stain for crafting and reviving some old, worn out furniture and cheap wood. It is absolutely beautiful. The color itself is a great, cool neutral that isn't too orange, red or yellow. It really brings out the grain in wood - even extremely light colored, cheap wood, giving it a beautiful, aged (but not worn) look. It's very forgiving for non-wood workers and doesn't show uneven application. I even rested it on part of the stain that wasn't dry by accident, and there was no color variation even though the paper towel seemed to absorb a lot of it off the surface (complete beginner user, here).
I most recently used it on Walnut Hollow 15 X 11 Serving Tray with gorgeous results. I can't speak for anyone looking to stain a high traffic or outdoor areas, but I'd highly recommend it for anyone interested in refinishing...
I now use this product to refinish my deck after a number of disastrous tries using expensive latex/water-borne stains. Here is an inexpensive method that works by solving the COLOR and PROTECTION issues separately and at low cost and effort.
First of all there is no need to power-wash, PH-condition, clean, or strip your deck. If there is a lot of loose, peeling stain or paint, scrub-brush it with TSP or mild detergent in warm water, then rinse well and let dry completely. It may continue to peel, but touch ups are easy.
Now, find the Minwax oil stain that is closest on the color chart to your existing color. It need not be exact. The Minwax stain will penetrate the old stain/paint and even out the colors.
COLOR: Mix Minwax oil based stain with Thompson's CLEAR multi-surface or wood sealer from 1 Minwax to 6 to 12 Thompson's. Experiment with the ratio to get it a bit darker than your old blotchy stain or paint, if that is what you are working with...
