How to Use wood stain
In this video we are shown the proper way to stain wood. For the demonstration in this video our host uses oak cabinets. Wearing rubber gloves, use a rag to apply the coat of stain. You will want to apply two coats of stain followed by a coat of polyurethane to protect your stain and the wood itself. A rag will ensure an even finish, as opposed to a brush that doesn't always get into the cracks and does not get the coverage that a rag does. With a brush you will have to worry about the bristles and runs. In addition, in the case of using untreated wood, using a brush could cause the stain to run and you would end up with streaks that would not come out. So the use of a rag as opposed to a brush is highly recommended.
