Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No joy - fiberglass door project Like others who panned this product after attempting to use it on fiberglass (see reviews for Minwax Mahogany Gel Stain), I find I must agree that this product is largely unsuitable to the task. Had I read those reviews instead of the reviews here for this color, I never would have purchased it. As others working with fiberglass have noted, working time is a major issue. I contacted Minwax regarding this and was advised by them to thin the product with paint thinner. There was no advantage to this as although it extended the drying time (which is not a plus by any means) it had no discernible effect on the product's working time. In any case, the result of wiping excess stain from fiberglass left so little of the product that its effect was no better than standard oil-based wood stain - which is virtually nil. After two days of disappointment and frustration, I simply used the stain as I would paint to complete the project. This in itself required two additional days as the product - even at full viscosity - required two full coats to cover adequately, as well as touch-up after completion. The result is unimpressive although I must say the color is perfect. For the cost, effort and drying time, I will seek a more user-friendly product to finish the 5 doors I have remaining.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product with incredible durability Gel stain is excellent for "painting" a finish on. Because it lays on top of the wood, you can use cheaper woods like poplar and get a cherry finish. This is not a dark cherry -- rather a medium, slightly brown cherry color. It is very beautiful, and with three coats it covers perfectly. With two coats of wiping varnish (50/50 polyurethane and mineral spirits) the result is incredibly durable. I have a dresser I made that is seven years-old, used daily and looks like new (see photo). Can't recommend enough. Thanks Minwax! January 12, 2015
