Listed in this section are the characteristics of some of the more common wood species that you will come across a you begin wood finishing, and their finishing characteristics. Our staining process includes four ingredients,water-based wood conditioner,water-soluble wood dye,dewaxed shellac and oil-based glaze (see Sources, below).Our process isn’t fast,because there are several it isn’t hard, and it’s home-shop don’t need any special finishing equipment, just brushes and rags. I am going to treat them with oil but would like to stain them back to a mahogany colour. But if you use the right stain color (perhaps go a little darker), the end result will be close to what you’re looking for.
Hi we currently have our kitchen installed with all solid wood parawood flooring and we want to sand this down and then give it a grey colour. Wood furniture is beautiful, but it’s not impervious to the wear and tear of everyday life. This makes it accept stain evenly, resulting in a uniform color without a pronounced grain pattern. If your stain isn’t taking, its probably because your sealer coat was too heavy and the wood is completely sealed.
I have also heard (but have not tried yet) that coconut oil is a great conventional stain alternative. Rated 5 out of 5 by donnie from wood stain marker peb, dark walnutI have used these to cover scratches etc. Either way, staining is a skill that all wood flooring contractors should have. The traditional finish for mahogany is designed to enhance these reflective qualities.

The longer you wait, the darker it will be. If you are not sure how fast your wood will take the stain, use a clean cloth and wipe on, and then wipe off again immediately. The stains used are Minwax Brazilian Rosewood (608) gel stain, Red Mahogany (225) penetrating stain, Natural (209) penetrating stain. Now you could always cover up the top using tinted lacquer (toner), which lets some of the wood grain show through but covers most of it up. Careful application of toner could possibly hide bad spots. Next time I would also definitely use a wood conditioner prior to staining for a more even application. After playing with the steel wool stains I decided I wanted to make a nice rich, dark brown stain.
I wanted this one a bit darker so I mixed in more of the dark poly and layered the nightstand with two more coats. Reading other websites and general finishes website, they say that if you go higher than 150 the wood won’t accept the stain well since 220 is polishing” the wood. It really brings out the grain in wood – even extremely light colored, cheap wood, giving it a beautiful, aged (but not worn) look. To stain a wood dark without obscuring the grain, I would choose an analine dye as opposed to a stain.
Most commercial stains contain both dye and pigment and the degree to which they stain the appropriate wood is mostly dependent on the length of time they are left on the wood. The text points out the obvious advantages of BRODA® for long-term maintenance; Low VOC’s, soap & water cleanup, and in the case of BRODA® PRO-TEK-TOR Natural Oil Wood Stain , never having to strip wood stain again. I no longer build with pine now that I have tried the higher quality woods like oak. We put in 2″ wide tongue and groove white oak flooring throughout our upstairs – absolutely beautiful.

As the Furniture has been pre varnished it will not take a stain into the wood, this is because the varnish creates a seal on the surface of the wood stopping anything from penetrating the wood.
Go through the process – sand, water, stain, stain, stain – and make sure it looks like you want. Protek Shed & Fence wood stain is available in many attractive and natural looking colours that can be applied by using a brush or a low pressure pump up garden sprayer. You’ve also opened my eyes to projects right around me. I was thinking of resurfacing our kitchen cabinets, but making them a darker stain just might work!
If you are pregnant, very sensitive to fumes, or need to stain something in an area that is not well ventilated, coffee stain may be the way to go. All stains dry by solvent evaporation; if your windows are closed or if the heat is set too low or turned off, the solvent cannot evaporate, and the stain takes longer to dry. But all of this results in masking the wood grain due to extra pigment on the surface.
