Testing Worn Navy 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 Worn Navy 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: 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 Worn Navy 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 Worn Navy 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 Worn Navy stain, it looks good on the Pine wood, I love it

Step 5: Poplar

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

Step 6: Maple

This is what the Maple looks like with the Worn Navy 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 Worn Navy stain, it highlights the grain in the Red Oak, but not as much as the Vintage Aqua stain

Step 8: Cedar

This is what the Cedar looks like with the Worn Navy 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 Worn Navy stain.

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