1 qt. Dark Walnut Premium Fast Dry Interior Wood Stain is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from After being a long time Minwax fan, Home Depot has made the decision to evolve over to Varathane.... After being a long time Minwax fan, Home Depot has made the decision to evolve over to Varathane. Having used the product before, figured I would go with it on a 9' showpiece dining room table. I started with a one pint can and liked the way the repurposed pine wood took the stain. I ran out and went for the quart can. I had to look at the can multiple times because the viscosity was noticeably thicker, thought maybe I bought stain/poly blend. I was impressed, the stain is more consistent, spreads evenly and dries as advertised in one hour given normal conditions. Looking at the can again, Varathane is a Rustoleum product, a proven brand. One word of advice, test the stain on a scrap piece. This dark walnut stain has a lot of color in it which is impressive, however it absorbs very quickly in this type of wood. I literally wiped it off as I stained the entire board surface (2x8's). Came back with a hand rubbed second coat using a cotton rag to fill in any gaps; the results were amazing. Finished it off with two coats of tung oil.

However, I had used about 2/3 of the can and put it away for about 4 months. I went to use it again and a film had formed over the stain and the stain was clearly no good anymore.
