My wife and I used Java in the kitchen and Georgian Cherry in a couple of bathrooms. The legacy cabinets were 1990's era builder's grade light oak color that had been used and abused. I have visited the factory where these things are made and i was shocked at the small (precise) amount of poly topcoat that goes on. When you wipe these things down a few times with Windex or other cleaners, they start looking ratty pretty fast. Fast forward 20 years and they look like absolute manure and some IKEA replacement cabinets will run thousands. My wife convinced me to buy $100 worth of stain instead of investing in new cabinets so the project commenced. My general observations are that the more care you take, the better the end product. One of us is an accountant (and wanted new cabinets) and the other person in the project has a BFA from a fancy schmancy east coast university. I am giving you the accountants point of view... I prepped the cabinets for about 60 seconds with a sandpaper pad 200 grit. Not 60 seconds per cabinet, that was my total sanding time and my observation was that these cabinets were toast. Water stains, dings and dents, and a disgusting place where urine had splashed onto the side and soaked into the mdf...gross. I bought some wood filler for the dents but didn't use any because I didn't want to go to the effort. I purchased foam brushes and the little yellow painter's friends to set the doors on while drying. Both of these products proved to be worthless. My favorite tool was old tube socks. The first coat didn't look too hot... kind of like po* wiped onto lousy cabinets. Second coat much better, third even better... I opted to go for a fourth coat on the doors which made them look darker with less woodgrain. Yes, woodgrain.Read more ›

I have always worked with liquid stains. Because this was a General Finishes product, I decided to try it. Their products are consistently high quality. The gel is great to work with because it does not drip or splat. You have to have a pretty big glob of it for it to splatter on its own. The amount of time you have to work out your marks is quite long. Titrating the color was easier than I have experienced in the past. I ended up using a technique that was more hand rubbed than put the stain on and then wipe it off. The color control I had was excellent. As always with General Finishes, the color clarity and hue are excellent.

The challenge for me was staining various woods, in various states, and pulling it all together. The job included: Woods with walnut stain, unfinished; woods with various brown stains, finished; electrical conduit (zinc coated); electrical cords; a formica table top. Before I began, I stained all the naked wood with the walnut, thinking that doing so would help it match. Maybe it did. All I know is that it pulled everything together. I can't believe it coated the electrical conduit, but I put on thick, and it looked good in one go. I put on a second coat just in case. If you put it on thick, you can lose the grain of the wood, but you will get a deep, rich color when you are done. The smell is fine, being a gel makes it easy to work with, and you can apply it with small art brushes in hard to reach areas. It covers everything, so after a while I was taking care of plastic brackets and nail heads without a second thought. Amazing stuff, never used anything like it before. The guy I hired to help has plenty of experience in all kinds of construction, and he was just as impressed. Damn good stuff. I used the Georgian Cherry for everything, which came out warm in a room full of warm finishes — the walnut in that warm room from previous efforts looked cold and grey. But after this Cherry went on, it all looked beautiful.

I bought this product in the Java and the Georgian Cherry. They are both really nice colors, however the Java is much easier to apply because you don't have to worry about seeing your brush strokes because it is so dark. I used the Java for both my bathroom cabinets and the Georgian Cherry for the kitchen. The original color was the old honey oak from the 90s. I would use this product for future projects.

I cannot say enough good things about this stain. I spent the better part of 2 months trying to custom match an oil based stain (including trying the professional mixing route at sherwin williams) but I couldn't ever get it to darken up to a rich cherry that I needed. Originally found this in a wood working store and the sale manager offered to let me try it on my sample piece of wood before I took it home. It was spot-on with only 1 coat and only staying on the bare wood for 15 seconds.

The key component to making this work successfully is prep-work. The directions say to sand with a minimum of 120 grit sand paper and a max of 150 grit. If you want a dark finish, go with 120 so that it can flow in to the deeper pores. If you want a light coat, go with 150 because the pores will be smaller and will take longer for the stain to absorb deep down. The biggest complaint I have with gel stains is the dry time. Let the wood sit and dry for a couple days (humidity is a big factor). If you do not wait long enough, brushing on a coat of polyurethane may cause the stain to mix and potentially smear. This will make it so that when you go to do your between coat sandings of the poly, you will likely sand some of the colour away (I am only mentioning this because I have made the mistake twice because I was in a rush). I use a piece of paper towel and rub it on the surface to check when it is dry. If the colour transfers to the paper towel, it is not dry. If the paper towel remains white, you are good to go.

I bought a box of 2" foam brushes (something like $13 for a box of 48 on Amazon) for the application process and use a paper shop rag (not paper towel since it is not as textured as paper towel tends to be) to wipe off excess.
