Testing Vintage Aqua Stain

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

Today we are Testing Varathane Vintage Aqua wood stain, on several different species of wood, such as Common lumber, White Pine, White Oak, Red Oak, Maple, Poplar and Cedar.

I have also included the video from my Youtube channel

Step 1: Before

This is what the lumber looks like before 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 Vintage Aqua stain, it gives the wood a real different look, I love it

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 Vintage Aqua stain, it doesn't look to good on the White Oak, that's my opinion

Step 4: White Pine

Step 5: Poplar

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

Step 6: Maple

This is what the Maple looks like with the Vintage Aqua stain, it doesn't look as good as some of the woods

Step 7: Red Oak

This is what the Red Oak looks like with the Vintage Aqua stain, I love how it highlights the grain in the Red Oak

Step 8: Cedar

This is what the Cedar looks like with the Vintage Aqua 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 Vintage Aqua stain.

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