This stuff starts to dry before you get an even coat on. Cloths just soak it up so you don't get near the coverage the tube claims. I had to refinish my bookcase after finishing it.
Pros- Beautiful colour.
Cons- Thick, goopy, dries too fast, comes out splotchy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sugnim A good product
I used several colors to stain some small wooden buildings that I made as part of a playset for my son. Basically, it is a small wooden village on top of a table. The stain looks great. The colors are fantastic, and you can see the wood grain through the color. I even blended a couple of the colors to create new colors. It does not have an odor, it cleans up easily, and it dries quickly. I'm glad I bought it!

My housekeepers were using a cleaning product, rather than furniture polish, to dust my wood surfaces. Eventually the finish was completely rubbed to the wood (got new housekeepers!). Meanwhile, I didn't want to have the entire china cabinet refinished, so I gave this a try. It worked to cover the bare spots and even out the finish. Work in small areas at a time. The stickiness mentioned by other reviewers is true, but if you try to work over a large area it will dry and drag, so work in 12" squares at a time. Apply evenly, let it dry, then buff with a soft cloth. Is it perfect? No, but it solved my problem.

This product is more like paint than stain. It's impossible to get an even coat, the edges don't blend. It dries way too fast and gets gummy. It was a very depressing experience to have to sand off the horrible results on a project that I spent a lot of time on.

I've used many minwax products, and have achieved great results, but this is not one of them! Goopy, messy, and dried before I could evenly spread it. If you plan on staining stick to the more tried and tried methods (unless you are a gluten for punishment)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TonySa This is great product for what it's intended for
This product is not really intended for a new or prepped surface. If you are changing color over an existing stain this product is excellent.
