Testing Barn Red Stain

About: Hi my name is David, I like to make things out of Wood, also like to take things apart and fixed them.

This week, I test Varathane Barn Red Stain on several different species of wood. Like, common lumber, white oak, white pine, poplar, maple, red oak, and cedar. I hope this helps someone that wants to try the Varathane Barn Red stain.
Remember the more coats you put on the wood, the darker the stain.

I have also included the video from my Youtube channel

Step 1: Staining

When staining with this product, brush on and let the stain set for about 5 minutes, then wipe off the excess and let dry.

Step 2: Common Lumber

This is what the Common Lumber looks like with the Barn Red stain, it gives the wood a real different look, I love the look

Common Lumber is 2" x 4"'s and 1" x 2" lumber that you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot

Step 3: White Oak

This is what the White Oak looks like with the Barn Red stain, it doesn't look to good on the White Oak, that's my opinion

Maybe I should applied a second coat to White Oak, it has a tighter grain

Step 4: White Pine

This is what the White Pine looks like with the Barn Red stain, it looks good on the Pine wood, I love it

Step 5: Poplar

This is what the Poplar looks like with the Barn Red stain, it gives the Poplar a real different look

Step 6: Maple

This is what the Maple looks like with the Barn Red stain, it looks good, better that the Worn Navy and Aqua stains

Step 7: Red Oak

This is what the Red Oak looks like with the Barn Red stain, it highlights the grain in the Red Oak.

Step 8: Cedar

This is what the Cedar looks like with the Barn Red stain, it gives the Cedar a real different look, I love it

Step 9: Finish

Thanks for checking out my Instructable, hopes this helps someone that wants to use the Varathane Barn Red stain.

Note that I just applied one coat to each of these pieces of wood, it would look different with multiple coats
