Jiving with Java Gel Stain

Show us what you have done with Java Gel Stain. This stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all - Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that results from rubbing on 2nd and 3rd coats. Gel Stains are formulated with a combination of pigments, oils, & urethanes to produce a durable and beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish. Gel Stains are heavy-bodied, and do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oilbase stains do. Available in stores in the US & UK, including Rockler & Woodcraft.

The 1 coat wonder came to the rescue on my outdated builder grade honey oak cabinets. I thoroughly cleaned any dirt, oils & toothpaste off. I then went over the cabinet with a 220 grit sand paper. Just enough to buff back the previous finish & to give the gel stain something to grip on to. I painted on one coat and here in Denver only had to wait 12 hrs (suggested time is 48hrs) before applying a light second coat. In between coats I used 0000 Steal Wool. Arm-R-Seal to protect is the last step.
