Prepare wood for staining with the Minwax 1-Pint Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner. The conditioner penetrates the grain of new or bare softwood surfaces, such as pine, fir and spruce, or porous wood surfaces, including maple, alder and aspen, and prevents streaks and blotches to help ensure a beautiful, even stain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Results for Pine I use this whenever I use pine for cheap woodworking projects. It gives a nice, even finish with no streaks or blotches, as long as you've prepared the wood correctly. (No cross sanding, finished with 220 grit, and make sure stain application is brushed on with the grain.) If you've ever tried staining pine without it, you'll know what a difference it makes! No reason to buy the larger can unless you've got a huge project - they're priced the same per ounce. I had a quart for two years in my garage, and it went bad before I had used more than half of it.
