Gel stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all General Finishes products. Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that shows up when rubbing out the 2nd and 3rd coats. Gel Stains are formulated with a combination of pigments, oils, and urethane to produce a durable and beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish.
Gel Stains are heavy-bodied, and so do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil base stains do. Because of this, they are often less affected by the condition of the wood and can help you get a more even appearance on difficult woods such as aspen or pine.
Gorgeous on furniture and table tops!
