          I wanted to protect some faded and water-stained wooden patio furniture and this product seems to be doing a great job. I did not want to spend a ton of time sanding, so even though I did a light sanding and cleaning, the product has restored the color of the wood. It is transparent, so you do see the wood's damage, but I am very happy with the result.

          Seriously Impressed
          I had just finished using this to refinish my deck tiles, when we got a freak thunderstorm about an hour later. I was cursing the heavens, convinced that the rain would either wash away my hard work or, even worse, ruin the finish. To my delight and surprise, I saw the rain beading up on the surface of the deck tiles and the next morning, they still looked perfect. The manufacturer recommends 24 hours before getting the treated surface wet, and I was impressed by the 1 hour performance.

            Great Color and protection
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the Olympic Wood Protector Semi Transparent stain. When I first opened it I was a little worried because it is orange, but it went on beautifully It was the perfect color for my table on the patio by my pool. It is thin and really gets absorbed by the wood very quickly The color is awesome I have taken pictures of the wood before and after to show the difference. This wood had never been waterproofed or stained before so you can really see the difference. It was super easy to brush on. It is also working very well to protect the wood and keep rain and water away I will definitely continue to buy and recommend to friends and family. Great color, water protection, and easy to apply. You can't go wrong with Olympic products.

              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been working of restoring an outdoor table for some time, and this Olimpic Wood protector really helped make that process faster and easier. I was glad to see that it is an all-in-one wood stain. Not only is it a stain and silent in one, but you don't even need to use a primer with this stain. The color of stain is a soft caramel color that is light enough to let the beauty of the natural wood color also shine through. The finish peoduct has a very nice gloss.  Overall great product that will help you save time and money.

                easy to apply
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this wood protector stain on my outdoor table. It was easy to apply. I made the mistake of using a foam brush to stain it. The brush strokes were visible after the stain dried. I think a roller would have done a better job. I plan on doing another coat to hide the brush strokes. The stain dried fast. The color looks more orange than I expected, but I think my table still looks nice. It brings out the grains on the wood well.
                  DIY friendly
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed this stain as my redwood steps were in need of maintenance. The product was easy to use, low odor, and dried quickly. The only think that future users need to pay attention to is mixing well. As with any product like this the colorants settle at the bottom of the can. It would be worth asking the paint department of your hardware store to put it on the mixer if you will be using it soon after purchase.

                    Good cover
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The stain proven to be useful to repel water and does help agains the sun. The stain it’s easy to stir as it is not thick like regular paint. Applies well to the surface, on this occasion I used wood. One hand covers properly without having much run off. Cleaning it’s simple with running water.

                        Nice stain
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I thought this stuff was pretty good. I was pleased with the turn out of the product. The smell was strong. I thought it did the job I jeeded it too. Easy to brush on. It's not full coverage so that's nice if you don't like the painted look.

                          Even Coating
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Goes on evenly and smoothly, but still allows the natural beauty of the wood to show through. Snow is a regular occurrence where we live and our deck deck was starting to show its age, This gave it a beautiful facelift and the waterproofing gave it an extended life as well. Gorgeous color.
