Can this stain be used on a wood exterior mahogany door?

Can this stain be used on a wood exterior mahogany door?
Asked by: JLW
You can use the wood oil on that but you need to really work it in. Mahogany is hard wood and Is generally less porous. It may be tough to get to work into the wood. The CWF Hardwoods in the Flood line may be a product to look at for that.

Mahogany Transparent Penetrating Wood Oil Exterior Stain is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good a finish for an older deck After the last three long harsh winters had effectively ruined our deck stain finish, both on the floor and railings, I chose this time to coat it with an oiled based stain with a lifetime guarantee. As our deck has the sun on it most of the day, I also liked the claims of UV protection both protecting the color and the wood. The area that I needed to cover is approx. 275 sq ft. The manufacture claims it covers over a thousand sq ft, I used almost all of the three gallons to cover the area with three coats using a roller and a brush and so a pretty close estimate of the coverage considering I completed 3 coats. Having picked a dry warm spell forecaster from our weather `experts` to last at least 3 days, I cleaned the deck with a good power washer with the water being mixed with a little detergent. Let it dry for a day and then applied one coat of the stain and sealant, The second day I applied the second coat and then much to my dismay, it rained for about 2 hours after completion (so much for our weather experts) Fearing the worst, I was relieved the next day to discover that although there were some slight discoloring of the deck, it wasn’t near as bad as I had anticipated. As soon as it was again dry, I applied the third coat (and yes after I had checked several weather stations first) and the finish was excellent. On the fourth day although it looked and felt okay to walk on, I erred on caution and left for another day to be sure it was safe to walk on. Overall the oil based mahogany stain covered the areas with surprising ease. I did use a different roller for each coat. I checked the finish after a couple of weeks and after an early spring snow fall and the whole deck still looked good. The pros I liked the best: Easy to apply, UV protector, penetrating oils, waterproofed and the lifetime guarantee

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deck and fence stain Absolutely the best for decks, it absorbs into the wood, so you don't have cracking, peeling, sanding, etc. just a mild power wash each spring and good as new. I've used it on several type of wood to give a test: mahogany, oak and pine wood. Great results, it does stain darker than you might think and tends to darken with each coat. As the name implies, "Mahogany" has a reddish tint to it. I've only used the oil base product so I can't comment on the water based stain. Originally I found this stain when looking to stain wood deck next to the pool. It's been three years since the first staining and I've re-stained it once. The deck darkened a lot with the second coat of staining but I love the rich look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Coverage, Nice Color I applied this PPG Timeless Mahogany Stain on some test wood prior to staining my new deck. I used the same Pressure Treated lumber and, overall, I like the results. It goes on easily and repels water after one coat, which is all the instructions say to apply. I added a second coat, which gave a noticeably deeper and richer color while still showing the grain of the wood (see photo), but I don't know if it improved durability or performance. One coat should provide about 250 sq-ft coverage per gallon. The color isn't exactly what I wanted, which is no fault of the product – that's why I got a tester size. The product comes with a lifetime warranty, which is impressive. It's more expensive than many exterior stains, but about the same price as other high-quality oil stains. I'll try additional colors because this seems like a great stain and a good value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the Oxford color I used this on a board and batten project on my barn. The wood was freshly rough sawn Douglas fir. I went over each piece quickly with a palm sander before putting the Oxford Brown oil stain on. If brushed on heavy and left I found it a little too dark for my taste, so what I did was brush it on heavy and let it soak for 3-5 minutes before buffing the excess off with a rag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great after application! We took on the project of staining our patio and decided to use the Mahogony color. Couple things to mention... 1. We found that on our patio a typical paint roller did not work that well. We went to homedepot and bout some 5 in. Lambswool Stain Applicator. HIGHLY suggest this product as it helps with any rods or support beams. Additionally, we got some stain specific paint brushes but found that any paint brush would work. If you decide to go ahead and use a paint roller, please remember stain is like water, and it goes everywhere unless you are very careful.. take your time! 2. PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING! Before staining, the day before, we lighlty power washed the deck, let it dry, then got some power wash cleaner and cleaned the deck, then power washed it again to get it really clean. We decided not to use a wood brightner, but that is a step you could have taken. 3. Make sure to wear clothes and shoes you don't care about when doing this project, also do not do it if the weather is above 90 degress because the stain mentions not too, and it would be very hot! Overall, we are so happy we did this, our patio looks great now! We think that this stain color was exactly what we were looking for. Our deck hadn't been taken care of for the past couple of years, so it was good to get some penetration wood oil for it!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers on its promises. This really seems to stand up to the elements well. It rains here often and my deck still looks great. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice oil stain, good penetration We selected this oil based exterior stain for the roof of our all cedar swing set. The manufacture recommends a coat of exterior oil stain yearly. Our harsh gulf coast Texas weather has the roof looking dry and weathered. We selected a darker mahogany color hoping the set will blend in better with our back yard. I have applied two coats to the roof and we will monitor it for about 6 months. If it holds up well we will then coat the whole swing set with two coats. A few notes we learned from our first hand experience with this product: 1. Our soft cedar wood really drinks this thin oil stain. You have to be sure to saturate the surface to get good penetration into the rough areas. 2. After trying a roller and a brush we found a cloth covered sponge such as you use to wash a car worked best for our application (see photo). 3. This stain dries lighter in color than we expected and by nature it has minimal coverage. It is very transparent so multi coats are needed on rough or dry wood. Proper preparation is also important. We used a stiff brush on our rough wood to get a good clean surface. 4. Since this is an oil stain, it is by nature slow to completely dry. It takes it a good 24 hours to dry before re-coating. It is ideal to find at least a three dry day period to complete a project outdoors. 5. It requires a paint thinner clean up, no soap and water clean up. We have provided some photos and a short 360 walk around video for the prospective buyer.
