Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! I picked this product because I searched for hours on a good stain to use to stain my bathroom vanity. I liked the fact it said one hour dry time and one coat coverage. To be honest, the one coat coverage is not accurate. I ended up doing 3 coats to achieve the color I wanted but if you do thin coats like suggested then it will dry in one hour. My first coat I used a clean white sock to apply it, waited 2 hours then applied a second coat with a foam brush. I left it on for about 2 minutes then wiped the excess off with a white sock. I let the second coat dry over night, the next day applied the third coat with a foam brush and waited 2 minutes before wiping off the excess. Always use a new foam brush and a new white sock for each new coat. I used the Varathane stain polyurethane for the top coat. July 23, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stained an outside table the the big green egg sits on. I think it is the perfect color choice. I mixed it with some water seal and used a sprayer to appy it. May 20, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kona 3X Wood Stain - Varathane This is available in-store, contrary to web site statement. It is also not a 2-pack. Did not dry in 1 hour in a 73 degree room. Drying was spotty. Finish remained slightly tacky, even after 12-hour over-night dry time with temperature maintained at 73F.. Overall finish had a waxy feel and remained unsuitable for recoating after 24 hours. This stain might be satisfactory on new wood, but for re-finishing it might react with residual finish not fully removed, which is a problem when refinishing open-grained wood such as red oak. Overall, this product appears to have the same sensitivity to drying problems as polyurethane gel stain. The drying problem does not seem to be related to film thickness. Thinner coat had worse tackiness after overnight dry time. Color build is good, and applying evenly is easy. March 1, 2014
