How to Stain and Finish a Piece of Furniture in One Step

An easy to apply, wipe-on finish that colors and seals raw wood in a single application.

Most of the time when we think of wood stains we imagine various shades of brown.  However this product, which comes in a convenient to use tube is available in eight different colors -- from yellow to green to red.  It's especially handy for use on accent pieces and children's furniture when you want a penetrating finish with some transparency to let the grain show through.  For the most part, the combination stain/sealer is applied with a clean, soft cloth although I do find that a brush is the tool of choice when it comes to getting the material into grooves, carvings and other details.   As with most stains, to get the best results apply in long strokes, going in the direction of the grain.
