Garbage
After spending days building a custom built planter and weeks for the wood to dry out I tried this stain as I liked the color represented. I sanded and washed the piece the day before application. After shaking the can for a few minutes I applied the stain. Final result is a bright orange stain that looks no where near the advertised color. Garbage.

    Second time using this product. I really like Thompson’s better. Color seems to be uneven with the product and doesn’t provide one coat coverage

    More like a paint than stain. Too Red! Nothing like the photo.
    I was looking for a stain that would bring out the natural colors of the wood with a slight red tint. This is so red and heavy its more like a paint than a stain. Looks nothing like the photo. Thankfully I tested it on a scrap piece of wood first. Could've been a disaster.

      Great product and did a nice job on our dated fence. Did not cover the 350 Sq. Ft as indicated but I believe it was the dryness of the wood. would recommend it and would use it again

      High quality stain and sealer. I recently build some monkey bars for my kids, and bought this product to seal and stain the wood so it matched the existing playground structure. Easy to apply. Very happy with the final product.

      The first can was semi transparent and came out the way we wanted. The second gallon was opaque and very red. The two cans did not match. One half of our deck is now one color and the other another. We are not very happy.

      Was a good sealer stain AFTER I turned can over a few times. Used it on rough cut fencing. I wish Olympic would state on can if product needed to be stirred, shaken or turned. Could not find help on can or Olympic website. First came out of can almost clear until I did turn it over a few times. It does need to be stirred ever so often when using. Yes I will use again and yes I recommend this.

      Color looks nothing like the picture. I would try to find a small sample and apply to your cedar, pine, or wood project before buying the big bottle.

      Don't be surprise how red the wood will be. Cost is so high, and I have used some 10 containers. Price $24.99. Many times out of stock. Thompson has a better product.
