Perfect. It is difficult to choose a color from an online sample, and this was just right. The only downsize was that it came from the warehouse, and I had to wait for it while choosing a time to stain between rainy days.

Easy application (used an electric spray gun) - cleans up with mineral spirits readily. This is a semi-transparent stain - the wood grain shows through as well as variations in the coloring of the lumber and cross-grain or open pores will absorb more coloring that other areas. For a darker tone, use multiple light coats. This is both a sealer and a stain, so water beads up on the surfaces it has been applied to. I prefer the look of semi-transparent vs. solid stain which looks more like paint which obscures the wood grain. Had more character.
