How To Stain Wood

Staining in the home is generally most easily done with a simple oil base stain. It’s just brushed on and wiped off. Staining is kind of “what you see is what you get”. If the wood your staining isn’t stain grade it will show every imperfection, joint, or color variation inherent in the wood. If you want smooth consistent color you need to start with wood or wood trim pieces made from a single piece. There are also woods that the grain is so varied that when stained will look many different colors, like Pine for instance. Sometimes you need to apply multiple coats to get the look you want.
