Wood stain is a centuries-old dye or pigment used to change the color of raw wood.Read the wiki page to learn more about the history.However, for this article, I'll just cover my basic and simple process for how to stain wood on a sanded and ready project.
For my pine coffee table project I'll be using a pre-stain wood conditioner, and then after a few minutes I'll apply my English Chestnut (from Minwax) oil-based stain.I want a lot of stain to soak into the wood to make it darker, so I will be brushing on the stain.
This puts more stain on the surface than if I just wiped it on with a rag.I'm using a cheap throwaway brush to save on cleanup.This work fine since I'll be wiping off the stain after a few minutes, so it's not like any of the brush strokes will be visible.
And using a brush also lays down the coat much quicker, so I can cover a larger area before removing the excess.I've only sanded the project up to 180 grit.This leaves a slightly rougher finish than my typical 220 grit finish sanding.
I do this because I want the stain...
