The Stain Finish
Wood species absorb stain differently. We recommend to test the color on a hidden section of the wood you are using. Wood stains are designed to add color to the substrate of wood and other materials while leaving the substrate mostly visible..Stains are differentiated from varnishes in that the latter has no added colour or pigment and is designed to form a surface film. Some products are marketed as a combination of stain and varnish
Preparation for Stain Finish
In certain cases you need to clean the wood or remove existing stains prior to staining the wood with a commercial stain in order to avoid damaging the wood.This can be the case for both unfinished and finished wood.Applying stains can be very easy or very difficult depending on the type of substrate, type of stain, and the conditions. Fresh, “green” lumber accepts stain poorly, while aged wood absorbs stains relatively well.End grain and bias-cut grain are far more absorbent, thus will accept more pigment and will darken considerably in those areas. .
