We can use any Minwax stain color.
Staining...We often get a request
to stain a piece of furniture. Staining is very difficult to get even on antique
pine and very time consuming. It is possible to get good, even great results,
but if wax will work, it is easier to get an even finish. Here are some examples of staining on our antiques...
Cherry Stain with an Antique Mahogany Wax Finish
Here are two tables that we first stained with golden oak, then oiled then waxed light brown:
and the round table in this photo:
Red Mahogany Stain with an Antique Mahogany Wax Finish
This is a custom brownish black glaze shown on new wood. It will be deeper
on old wood and smoother. The upper sample has been waxed with light brown
On the left is Dark Walnut, on the right is Special Walnut.
Both samples have been waxed with Light Brown Wax to give an even gloss.
Here is a plank table done in Dark Walnut that we did for a local customer
last year. Pretty nice huh? It was VERY difficult to get the color even
but we are still married.
This Mora clock was stained with Dark Walnut and will be waxed. Gorgeous!
