I bought this because of a Pinterest post about stable and this is he stain they used. I couldn’t find it anywhere local so I was forced to order it. I only had a choice o buy two quarts at a time, so I did. I applied the stain and it looked nothing liked the pictures from the table on Pinterest. So what did I do, I improvised and put two coats of the honey maple and then did one light stain of carrington (dark stain) and wiped it off immediately & got an awesome color! I just used it on some stills and came out beautiful! Thanks

The premium brand is the best stain ever. I stained my stairs and banister that had a clear poly finish on it. I was surprised I was able to stain right over it and it looks gorgeous. No stripping was needed. The premium was much deeper in tone which is less coats. I let it cure fir 24 hrs if you want a darker tone. The second coat left a nice shine no top coat needed.

Product looks great easy to apply and I’m glad I bought Tolbert two pack because I had to crack into the second on the last few boards. If you know you are going to use both cans I suggest combining them in a clean container for a uniform color. I didn’t see a difference in the two cans but others have complained about a color difference.

Is this Summer Oak?
Picture and actual color is totally different.. My project had to be done that day so I went ahead and stained it but I’m wondering if it’s the right color.

    Natural looking wood
    I used it on common pine boards to trim out a garage conversion I am working on. Love the way it pulls the grain and knots out. Looks great!

    Water-thin when applying, so really need to tape / use drop cloths effectively...or be ready for an extended clean up period. End result was surprisingly good, considering I used pallet wood for the project.
    Took 2 coats...on bare wood!

    Don't trust the label.
    It covers well in one coat, but for a good result, you need to use a pre-stain conditioner. See pictures. It's true that the conditioner is not required in the sense that you will not get arrested.
