just notice these stains are intended for indoor use, is there one for outdoors??? I used this early American stain a few years ago for my front doors n applied 2 coats of the clear gloss over it and it looked great but I guess I use the wrong product...
Asked by: LLCuJ
Hello. Our Gel Stain is approved for indoor and outdoor use. Follow that up with our Helmsman Spar Urethane. Regards, Minwax Customer Support

Why can't you put polycrylic over red mahogany? I have a piece painted in latex, that I stained over to antique.

I mixed a few leftover stains, one was the red mahogany. Can't polyurethane, can't polycrylic,any suggestions for sealing?
Asked by: Confusedcookie
Hello, We do not recommend using our Polycrylic product over any stain that has red pigments as the solvents in the Polycrylic have a tendency to react with these colorants. Generally, this happens the most often when attempting to coat over our Red Mahogany, Sedona Red, Red Chestnut (etc) Wood Finish Stains. The red colorants will "disappear" causing the color to appear more brown, or will run. In order to avoid this from happening, though instances are rare, we do not recommend using our Polycrylic over these colors of stains. You should have no trouble using any of our other clear finishes over these colors of stain, should you wish to avoid this potential issue. I would suggest using our Water-Based Helmsman Spar Urethane instead, as this should not react with the red pigments in your stain. This product does not noticeably amber and should give you the results you desire. Regards, Minwax Product Support

1 qt. Wood Finish Red Mahogany Oil-Based Interior Stain is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lighter than I hoped I used this on oak and it looked great so I decided to use it on some pine shelving. Even after applying it with a very heavy hand and allowing it to sit for longer than the recommended 15 minutes it resulted in a lighter color than expected but a second application the next morning resolved the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minwax Wood Stain This product is easy to use and not only stains the wood, but penetrates and seals to give a deep, even color. I only used one coat, but more coats can be added to deepen the color. I liked that the drying time was only 8 hours instead of 24 or more. I used minwax polyurethane to provide an extra protection, since I was staining trim pieces for the floor. However, no extra protection is really needed. Also, the polyurethane worked very well over the stain. I used a lint-free cloth to apply the stain and it was so easy. I just let the cloth dry and threw it away--no brushes to clean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Mahogany Stain This stain is really dark if you leave it set too long before wiping off the excess...or worse if you let it dry without removing the excess. I applied it with a brush to a couple table tops and let it set for 10 minutes and then removed the excess with paper towels. The grain still showed through the stain (Clear All-Heart Redwood) and several coats of Helmsman Spar Urethane (Gloss) after the stain was allowed to dry, really brought the beauty of the natural wood grain out and everyone remarks about the fantastic finish of the tables. I'd definitely recommend this stain to anyone who wants to enhance the beauty of fine wood without hiding the grain and natural features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Darker but great.. I used the Red Mahogany on the poker table that I built for a friend. The stain is a darker than you can imagine (if you look on the container) and my table looked like an antique furniture due to the darkness.. And as the other reviewers mentioned, it brings out the grains very well.. Overall, very easy to apply and stands out very well..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I am building a bar. I purchased oak 1/4" plywood over 1/2" pine. This stain on oak looks truly amazing. I can't wait to polyurethane it and finish this project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Loved this color-- was looking for a bit darker, wanted a very dark cherry, but this fit the bill. The floor finisher said he only likes to use minwax stain, so this was the best color!
