how would you describe the color? Is it more brown or gray?

how would you describe the color? Is it more brown or gray?

can I give it a lacquer finish

Asked by: Frank
You could lacquer the finish, but why would you use inferior stains like Varathane? The only reason I used it was that my customer requested it. I finished the stain with poly...the best thing to use on a low-grade stain. If you want a quality finish, use General Finishes. That is what the pros use!

Will the wood grain still show through?

I really like the wood grain pattern but i need the 2 x 4 a darker color
Asked by: Liz83
Yes, it all depends on how you sand it, how much stain you put on and the type of wood

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great liming wax substitute too I like the varathane 3x wood stains. I have a few different colors. This product is of the same quality. Very easy to apply, 1 coat is all you need and it really does dry in an hour. To be able to stain and get your first coat of finish on something the same day is really nice. This is marketed toward people that like the distressed and reclaimed look, however proceed with caution. If you are going to use this on construction lumber (2x4's) it's not going to look good However if you use a dark gel stain first, seal that with dewaxed shellac, then apply this product, it will look nice. I got this to try it out for a project I had in mind. I like the look of limed oak. Oak that has been dyed dark but had a very light wax filled in the pores. I tested this on some scrap white oak and it did what I want. The surface was prepped with a smoothing plane, so very smooth. The white stain was a lot more present in the pores than over the whole piece as you can see below in the pictures. This great stuff, give it a shot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The best stain I have used - but terrible color I do a lot of woodworking in my spare time. Finishing is my favorite part of any project. I apply anything form professional grade sprayed finishes to hand rubbed oil finishes. I don't use stain often, but when I do I am very selective. This 3x stain is amazing stuff. Thick like a gel stain so it is perfect for blotch prone wood like maple and cherry. Coverage really is "3x" I've used gel stains before and this stuff is unreal. I tried a sample on some scrap maple - which is notorious for blotching. Without any washcoat or pre-stain, this went down beautifully with a foam brush. It wiped off clean and dried quick The only issue is the color. It is very purple. Even on a dark wood like black walnut, it shows up a deep purple color. I have already purchased a few different colors of the Varathane 3x and can't wait to use them. I was that impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good weathered look, but a little light This stain is pretty standard as far as application goes. I ended up applying two coats, even though the can says color can be achieved in one coat. The results were nice and even, with the grain contrasting well in the pine I applied it to. It dries pretty quickly too. However, the result was a little lighter than I had hoped for. The can shows a nice dark gray color, but my pine stained much lighter. I suppose oak or walnut would come out close to the color shown on the can. I sanded the workpiece with 220 grit prior to application, so maybe stopping at 180 grit would allow a little better penetration. I did not apply a pre-stain wood conditioner because I wanted the darker color. Although it wasn't as dark as I would have liked, I was pretty happy with the evenness of the results without the conditioner, especially since I was working with pine.

It has always stained wood extremely well and doesn't blotch wood like I've used with other stains. For those of you experiencing problems with stain not taking, I recommend not sanding to 220. Also, test!!! Sand, try a small piece of wood. Use a lower grit and try again. Make sure you put on thin coats if you're expecting it to be dry in one hour. When someone stated it was still running and dripping after an hour, you've put on wayyyy too much. If your coats are really really thin, you don't have to wait 5 minutes and wipe off the excess because there won't be any excess. Just thought I'd share my thoughts.

I have used Varathane products for several years and have never been disappointed in the result. I purchased the Early American stain because I needed a color that was somewhere between the dark American Walnut and very light Colonial Maple. I use these stains on pressure treated yellow pine from which I make planting boxes for resale. The Early American stain goes on well and the excess is readily wiped off. It dries in a relatively short period of time after which I apply a coating of Varathane Exterior Spar Urethane. The end result is a good looking product which is readily salable..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I picked this product because I searched for hours on a good stain to use to stain my bathroom vanity. I liked the fact it said one hour dry time and one coat coverage. To be honest, the one coat coverage is not accurate. I ended up doing 3 coats to achieve the color I wanted but if you do thin coats like suggested then it will dry in one hour. My first coat I used a clean white sock to apply it, waited 2 hours then applied a second coat with a foam brush. I left it on for about 2 minutes then wiped the excess off with a white sock. I let the second coat dry over night, the next day applied the third coat with a foam brush and waited 2 minutes before wiping off the excess. Always use a new foam brush and a new white sock for each new coat. I used the Varathane stain polyurethane for the top coat.

This product worked great, but I had to use it along with another color to match what I needed in my house. My wife has become a pro at staining and painting and she combined this color with Kona to match the Warm Chestnut flooring that we have. When putting on several layers it can be tedious process with application and removal but in all it gave us some great looking stair treads.
