Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Finish Had trouble finding this stain locally for some reason but I am glad to see it is not being discontinued. This is a very beautiful finish, I put it on solid cherry, really gives any project a lot of charater. Little tough to make the jump to something so dark but the end result is great. Also, was able to pick up through the order online/pick up in store and it was very convient and easy, would definately recommend for anyone that already knows what they need. October 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product! we applied minwax ebony of our hardwood floors post sanding and clean up. it's a type of oak, unsure which exactly. the minwax really took a liking to the oak wood. we applied 2 coats, followed by several coats of polyeurathan in semi-gloss. our floors look spectactular! thumbs up to the reps at HD who were very helpful and explained how stains react differently to various types of wood. i learned a lot in the short time i was there and will definitely take that into consideration the next time i stain/refinish wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ebony stained cabinets So I decided to take on another project. Refinishing my kitchen cabinets. So with a little help from my boyfriend, and a lot of help from the paint guys at my home depot (they know me by name there, now) we started sanding away. After all the sanding was done, which was the hardest part of the whole project we applied the MINWAX EBONY stain, and then sealed it with the MINWAX POLYURETHANE in semi gloss. Now my cabinets are more contemporary and absolutely gorgeous. Another project I can check off my list. Love my home depot!!!!!!!! October 19, 2010
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didnt work for me I dont know what was wrong but this goes on like a thin watercolor paint. I thought it was oil based, but it hardly seems to cover. Even after two coats it still looked like thin and bad. Get Rustoleum instead, that went on nice and thick in one coat! This minwax is just terrible. I dont know why. August 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liked it better than Rustoleum I am restaining all the interior doors in my house. Prep: I first stripped them with a citrus based stripping product, scraped off the old stain and polyurethane with a razor blade and used a BRASS brush to remove the stuff in the grain of the wood (dont use a steel brush, it will scratch and make the surface fuzzy!). I then removed the residule with odorless mineral spirits. I then used compressed air to remove any left over dust from teh surface. Stain: I tried both Minwax and Rustoleums ultimate wood stain. I prefered the minwax because it goes on thin and it "stains" the wood. The Rustoleum product is slightly thicker and hides the grain, and was difficult to avoid making streaks (maybe my brush was too coarse?). Anyway, I would suggest you buy a small can of each brand and try both first, they have very different end results. September 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by REALLY dark Wanted to stain the wood BLACK. Got close, but not fully black. Even after several applications & leaving it on much longer than needed, I could not get a full black. After applying a clear/amber varnish over it, I actually liked the finished results.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ebony stain on oak table I was very disappointed with the results of 2 coats of ebony wood finish on a parquet oak table. I removed the previous finish sanding with 80, 120, 180, 220 and 320 grit sandpaper and wiped on a liberal coat of ebony, waiting 20 minutes before wiping off. The grain was darkened, but most of the oak retained very little of the stain. I applied a second coat, again liberally, with a foam brush, and again wiped the excess after about 20 minutes. My son and wife thought I had not done the second coat as it didn't appear to change the color of the oak. October 27, 2011
