Can i use this on my screened patio deck floor?

Asked by: Jayz
I would not hesitate using it on your wood deck floor. That being said, I would use a lower gloss polyurethane (my personal preference for this type pf project) to protect the wood and preserve the color after application. Maybe test it on a separate piece of wood deck plank (scrap) that's not part of your floor to test to be sure it dries and looks like you would like it. Also as a tip, I recommend working in small square areas. It makes it much easier to wipe the excess off for a consistent look. I just got this product recently and love how it looks. Best of luck with your project!

Can this stain be used on cedar siding?

Asked by: Cam
Not sure about cedar siding but I made farm style shutters from cedar fence planks from Home Depot and they look fantastic! This stain has good penetration and has repelled water since application. Assuming your siding is about 1/2 inch thick like the fence planks, you should have no problem at all. I highly recommend this stain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Happy with the Results Been using the 'major' brand for years and haven't had any complaints. So, when this rolled around, with the 3X feature, I had to give it a try. Bottom line ... it may just have become my "go top" stain. I think the "3X Faster" claim comes from the "nano pigments", which I suppose are smaller than typical pigments ... and that allows for deeper, faster, and more even strike. And that's what I found. I used two coats on the cypress planters I just built. Though it's not the 'fine furniture' I think I build, being soft and porous, I think I needed that second coat. The second coat I applied, after light sanding w 220, did even out the color further. [The grain lift will be different on different woods ... there was moderate lift with my cypress.] I weighed the can and compared it to the major brand ... not a material difference at 1054 gm [10% heavier than their "Black Cherry"... a heavier can would suggest more solids [pigments] vs carrier. Can states 275 sq ft coverage; it's solvent-based .. cleans w mineral spirits.

It is true that this stain dries so much master than other stains. it is also true that you only need one coat of this stain but this is where the advantages of this stain end. The disadvantages are numerous: 1) Varathane stain so thick that the finished product almost (not quite, but almost) looks like paint. I emailed them to ask for a recommendation on thinning it, they responded promptly saying that they do not recommend thinning this product. I applied the stain using a cloth and removed excess. 2) Although I use anti-blotch (Charles Neil), it seems that I got far more blotching this time when using this stain than I did when using other stains. 3) No stain is going to do a perfect job around wood knots, but it seems that Varathane did worse. If you are using clean wood with no knots and you are using a lighter color than ebony, you might enjoy the advantages of Varathane stain. But if you need ebony and you are not using fancy wood, stay away from this. Go back to minwax and use two (or three) coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for weathered look. Excellent product. Built entertainment center, coffee table, & end tables from pine. After sanding through 60-100-150-220, used the Varathane weathered gray, and wipe on poly, and got exactly the look that I expected. 1 qt covered all 4 pieces adequately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stain was easy to use and dries fast We wanted to replace our carpet stairs, we bought your stair treads with risers. We used Varathane black cherry stain. With one qt we did 15 stairs and risers and one coat worked just fine. We did have enough to do a second if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Blue Poly Shade One of the cleanest shades of blue on a piece of pine I have seen. My wife took one look at this beautiful color/poly mix and fell in love with it. She is having me build things just so she can use this blue shade. It goes on real easy and doesn't take long to dry. Cleans up just like any other poly. The difference is the more you put on the darker the blue. One coat was all it took for both of us to fall in love with the results. experimenting I put a triple poly on over the blue shade. The blue looks like its under about 20 ft of crystal clear water. Did an excellent job. We are going to use this easy product to produce so very good looking patio furniture and some "what knots" for the house. This is a beautiful product that is easy to use, you will love the results Be Safe

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Look This is a nice stain. I used it on pallet wood, which varied in color, & it resulted in a whitewashed effect (I used a wire brush to thoroughly clean the wood beforehand, but did no other preparation). I actually ended up wiping off a good bit from the lighter boards because I wanted more of the wood grain to show through. On the darker pieces though, one coat was enough to make it look whitewashed. It all depends on the wood you’re using and how opaque you want it, but for many applications, this is truly a 1-coat stain. It’s easy to use, has lots of possibilities, and makes for a good finished product – definitely recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VARATHANE MAKES AN EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCT MINWAX oil based wood finish has been my go to interior wood stain for staining door and window moulding, etc. but after trying VARATHANE'S black cherry wood stain I believe I may have a new go to wood stain. I am very satisfied with the one coat even finish that the VARATHANE wood stain produced when I stained some quarter round moulding. I can not wait to use this stain on future projects that need staining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even I could use it. This stain sat on the shelf for a while before I was brave enough to use it. Staining is not something I am good at. I usually talk my sister into doing it for me. But I was able to get good results using this stain. It is easy to apply, and it seams like the foam brush is never going to run dry. This can is going to last through several staining projects! Now I just need to get it in more finishes.

As with any stain, I ignore the color shown by the vendor and look for other people's projects online, taking into considering what wood was used. I was looking for a transparent, driftwood type gray to stain some birch panels and pine furniture, and this was the closest thing I found at a big box store. All of the other gray stains were way too dark. I was happy with the results and plan to use it on other projects.

I've used stain on varying projects in the past, and this weathered gray stain has been just as good as any. Very easy to use, and great results! I wanted the wood grain and color to show through, so I wiped the stain away after a single coat - the result was phenomenal. Would recommend sealing in a clear water-based polyurethane or wax to further protect. Looking forward to another project with this same color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich Dark Gray color; Color intensity determined by how long stain left on wood The instructions to apply the stain were easy to follow; the stain was easy to apply to various mediums used (red oak, pine, basswood, and popular wood). I found that if I left the stain on the minimal amount of time (approximately 2 minutes), the stain resulted in a lighter gray; likewise if the stain was left on longer (approximately 7 minutes), then the stain resulted in a deeper gray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! This white stain works great. I have always wondered how to get that "pickled" look on oak, and now I know! One thing I noticed is that when using on oak, a second coat really fills the pores and changes the appearance significantly (see the attached photos). On tighter grained wood like pine, a second coat just makes the color bolder.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The color is awesome, but the pick up is hideous. . I stripped an old door that I found at a salvage store to fit into my 100 year old house. It was an 15 panel glass door and it took me forever. I stained one side of the door and the color was absolutely perfect. It matched the rest of the wood in the house. After 24 hours I put the brush of poly or sealant, which was also oil based on the door and it picked up the color. So how long do I have to wait to seal the door with poly or tong oil? I had to "restain" the area in which I had tried to put the poly on since now the color was uneven. I'm not how it's going to look now, but I'm exceedingly irritated. This stuff created more work for me and if I have to repair the color.. I've one woodworking for years and I worked 2 years in the paint department of Home Depot while I was in college. I'm an experienced painter and wood worker. I read the directions and I read the reviews. I'm astonished that no one else has had this happen. I never anticipated this because I've never had this happen with other brands of stain.

I had a 30 year old solid oak bedroom set I could not part with so with direction from the local Home Depot Paint Department Representative I sanded and stained with Kona Varathane. After adding updated handles for a whole new look I could not be happier with the results. Though I was not looking forward to sanding I am so glad I took the time because with the solid oak and kona colored stain the wood grain is beautiful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kona 3X Wood Stain - Varathane This is available in-store, contrary to web site statement. It is also not a 2-pack. Did not dry in 1 hour in a 73 degree room. Drying was spotty. Finish remained slightly tacky, even after 12-hour over-night dry time with temperature maintained at 73F.. Overall finish had a waxy feel and remained unsuitable for recoating after 24 hours. This stain might be satisfactory on new wood, but for re-finishing it might react with residual finish not fully removed, which is a problem when refinishing open-grained wood such as red oak. Overall, this product appears to have the same sensitivity to drying problems as polyurethane gel stain. The drying problem does not seem to be related to film thickness. Thinner coat had worse tackiness after overnight dry time. Color build is good, and applying evenly is easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coverage, even color, easy to apply I wrote off soya based finishes and stains a long time ago. They had all the negatives of oil based products and none of be benefits of waterborne products. This is different and combines some of the best traits of both! It dries relatively quickly for an oil based stain. After about an hour you are good to go. It also provides good, even, single coat coverage with little blotching. I tried it on some cherry and maple which are notorious for blotching. I did get a ittle more blotching than a water based gel stain would produce, but a quick coat of dewaxed shellac would fix that. Unlike gel stains, this did not obscure the figure. The color here is just right. It's a nice, rich, golden tone that looks nice on many species. I am not a fan of oak at all so I don't use it, but this adds a nice tone to many other hardwoods. I am very impressed with the coverage. a little goes a long way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy this product I would not buy this stain. The lable says it dries in one hour. I finished my project in a small heated finishing room and let it dry for a couple hours or more when it felt dry to the touch. When I applied a polyurethane coat some of the stain came off once wetted. I stopped and let it dry overnight. Same result in the morning. No change. Not only is the color of the area of my project I put poly on smeared and blotchy, but it polluted my poly. Now I have to wait for the poly to dry, sand it down, and apply something else. And another trip to the store. Won’t be done for Christmas now. Very disappointing! I wish Home Depot had stuck with minwax. Never had a problem with their stain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed... I have used plenty of brands of stains over the years on DIY projects, etc. We are refinishing a kitchen table and tried using this stain. I sanded the table top down to the bare wood. Tried this stain...it was terrible. I stirred it plenty... it came out very dark and bluish and actually was so thick that it looked as though it were painted. After many minutes I went to wipe off the stain and most of it wiped off. It did not penetrate the wood and was working like a gel stain that stays on the surface. I re-stained it...wiped it down...kept retouching areas where it would wipe off. Wasted a lot of time on this stain. After staining I waited two hours and it still wasn't dry and I was able to still wipe it off with a rag an mineral spirits. I then resanded the top and used the MinWax grey and it worked fine. I don't like the Minwax color that much either...too light...but at least it worked. Will never buy this brand again. Very frustrating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible... just horrible This stain should really be renamed to "purple stain" because that's the color you'll get. Luckily I did a practice stain on the back of my new stair treads and didn't ruin it. Unfortunately, I lost the receipt and couldn't return it - now I'm stuck with it. Don't make my mistake...
