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.

I was impressed with the coverage on poplar. Smooth. Wiped off and dried nicely. When clear coated it was indoor furniture quality.

I bought the Kona color of stain. It is a beautiful dark color, very much like so many furniture pieces on the market today, with NO red undertones at all. One quart covered the whole kitchen of unstained oak cabinets. I would highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MC New Life for old rocking chairs
Daughter in law had rocking chairs that had special meaning for her that needed help. Paint (layers of paint) had blistered and peeled leaving an ugly mess. After hours of sanding got down to the wood. Two coats of the stain (Honey Maple) they had a nice shine with some antique effect in places. She was pleased and they now sit proudly on the front porch.

The product was excellent but the smell was extremely strong and took days for the smell to settle down.

I think it is the perfect color choice. I mixed it with some water seal and used a sprayer to appy it.

I love using Varathane products! I have used their products for years in my classroom and for personal use. My only complaint is Home Depot!
