Happy to help! Yes, Rust-Oleum Varathane Gel Stain can be used on bare wood surfaces, make sure the surface is sanded as directed. For the best finish, we recommend applying against the grain and then working with the grain to even out the color. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Response from Rust-OleumSupportJun 3, 2021
Thank you for sharing your experience, Carey. Since the wood species used for the application can affect the final color of Rust-Oleum Varathane Gel Stain, we recommend applying in a test area first to ensure favorable results.
