Learn more about two of the General Finishes products that will work for you no matter the project!
WATER BASED WOOD STAIN
General Finishes Water Based Stains have superior qualities over oil-based stains and are first choice for DIYers. Their high-quality pigments produce rich, dark, uniform colors on hard-to-stain woods like maple and pine.
Don't worry about the scent of this product. They are low odor, low VOC, noncombustible and clean up easily with water. They can be applied using a brush or spray.
OIL BASED GEL STAIN
Gel Stain from General Finishes is home of the popular Java Gel Stain for upcycling furniture and cabinets. Spending a weekend repurposing old furniture? This is the choice for you!
Gel wood stains are heavy-bodied and do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil-based wipe-on stains do, providing the deepest, richest colors of any oil-based stain available.
