The Effects of Different Stains on White Pine Wood

Introduction: The Effects of Different Stains on White Pine Wood

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

I wanted to see the what different stains would look like on White Pine wood, so I made a Video for my Youtube channel a few weeks ago, and I thought some of you might like to see it too.

Step 1: PreStain

I first applied a coat of Minwax Pre-Stain wood conditioner to all the pieces, except the first block. Just brush it on and let it set for about 20 minutes, then you can apply the stain of your choice.

Note I would recommend using Pre-Stain wood conditioner before staining any White Pine wood.

Step 2: Plain

The first block, I left it plain, No Pre-Stain.

Step 3: Steelwool & Vinegar

I mixed some White Vinegar and some pieces of Steelwool in a Jar, you will need to let it set in the Jar for at least a day or two.

This is what it looks like after drying a couple of days.
