Interior Wood Stain - Special Walnut is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 237.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wood restoration passion I own a 100 + year old colonial home and my pet peeve is people that paint over natural woodwork. Last winter I decided to start refinishing some interior doors. I completed five so far and got fantastic results using Min wax pre stain conditioner, Min wax Wood Stain and of course Min wax Polyurethane. Mmm. The wood stain brought out all the natural grain in the doors and then 3 liberal coats of Min wax gloss polyurethane. OMG, I Can see my reflection in the finish. I want to emphatically state for the record that I am an amateur wood worker and just followed the instructions on the product labels. To close my review Min wax has opened up a whole new world of restoration projects around my home. Over this past spring I began taking down all of the bannisters and have completed restoration on 7 of 8 and they look fantastic and then stripped and refinished the bar top in my basement. Thank you for creating some amazing products for a laymen wood enthusiast. Drew Modic

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't like the new formula I ran out of stain part way through a project and had to get the new formula, English Chestnut 233. I loved the color on the desk I made and wanted a cabinet to match. Well same name and number, no match in color after multiple coats of the new stuff. I still have to make doors and not sure what I'm going to do since they won't match anything else. Very disappointed now that the doors won't match the rest of my furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stain [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like all Minwax products because no matter which of my project i use them, they do great job. One important trick for the ones who buys stain; just ignore the pictures on the stain bottles when you buy them because they don't match when u apply most of the time. Instead use processed wood sample pieces to figure out which stain is the best for your project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minwax brings out great color! We use minwax oil based penetrating stain,because if the rich color it brings out in wood! The furniture we paint and stain for our customers get nothing but the best! When used correctly with the minwax pre-stain the product shows an even color throughout the project

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stain My wife and I own a specialty woodworking business. So, on occasion, we test other stains to see how well they work. We always go back to Minwax stains for several reasons. The stain is easy to work with, goes on evenly and clean up is a breeze. From batch to batch the color does not change which is very important to us. When you show your client a stain board, you want the stain you use to match what they want. Minwax stains work well in our sprayer as well, some stains don't. To sum up, Minwax is easy to work with and consistent. We are through testing other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome color [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product was the perfect color. It’s easy to put on and drys quick. It does smell a bit so apply in well ventilated area and you’ll have a great product. Photo is on birch plywood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Minwax products are a huge hit in our home. I love all of their products and they really do everything you need them to do and more. The wood finish is super convenient. It does not take long to dry and you really do not even need to use a lot of product to cover all. It's like it soaks into the wood yet leaves a very smooth, shiny finish. I love using this because I work with wood pieces a lot and this truly brings each piece to life. You can find the perfect color with all Minwax products and it helps you get and stay creative. I always have consistency when I use this and it never leaves any mess behind. Highly recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a fan Puritan Pine stain is red and never on any documentation is that the representation of the color of this product. Instead of being a natural looking yellow pine, it is red. This ceiling is ruined.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Second coat After striping, sanding Nd staining, I followed the instructions and attempted to put a second coat of stain on my table to deepen the color. BIG mistake! Don’t even try to do this. Buy a darker color and save yourself hours of work. Please take the second coat option off of the label.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "Same" stain, different colors My main issue with this product is that with the new formula, the same Red Chestnut 232 stains are different colors. I noticed the difference in the color representation on the cans (new formula on left; old formula on right), but was hoping it'd be the same on wood. Lucky I did a test first! The new formula does not have the same red tone or depth as the old version. I would argue it's not even red anymore. I still had about 10% of stain left in the old can and was able to mix them to get a closer match for the baseboards I was midway through staining. Aside from color, the new stain also doesn't absorb into the wood as well. This meant that I used less stain, but it doesn't have as deep of a color to me (despite same wait times for new and old versions). I think the stain is fine so long as you're aware of the formula change and know you won't be getting the same color as you used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this color!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was a super easy to apply stain with a few rags. I was very impressed with how good my project came out. Would purchase again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor coverage with new forumula. I always liked the special walnut color stain, but I recently tried the new semitransparent stain and it barely absorbs into the wood even with a wood conditioner it looks uneven and dull. Adding another coat doesn't improve the situation. So disappointed because there is no comparable gel stain color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cherry 235 too light... I'm using "Cherry 235" Wood Finish stain on Pine wood that has been pre-treated with "Pre-Stain" which seems to give me a very light color compared to real cherry wood even after 2 or 3 passes so I decided to try "Cherrywood Gel Stain" on the very same board under the same conditions and preparations and what a better and different result although both products don't match in color as "Cherrywood Gel Stain" is much more richer and has a yellow cast which I like plus has more saturation. I wish I could I achieve the same color result using "Wood Finish" Stain instead the of the Gel version just because in my opinion it's much easier to use and for some reason the drying time seems to be faster and doesn't get the end grain of the boards too dark like the gel stain does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 500 furniture tops later I have made well over 500 wood decor pieces (tables, cabinets, shelving, etc) this year And Minwax stains is always my #1 choice. I have tried every major (and most minor) competitor’s products and Overall Minwax is my choice and recommendation. Like ALL coatings you should test and use proper applicators. Pre-conditioning is a must on every piece we make. My only gripe is the pre-conditioner is pricey :-(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Minwax Penetrating Stain - English Chestnut 233 I'm working on a project with my daughter-in-law using the Minwax Penetrating Stain - English Chestnut 233 product on Arkansas clear pine wood dimensional lumber. She stained the the 1st twelve pieces of lumber and then I took over completing the remaining twelve pieces. Unfortunately, I didn't have the pieces she stained to compare until I was completed. Using the same can of stain (she passed on to me) on the same pieces of lumber that were purchased from the same lumber yard at the same time the difference in color was astonishing. I'm totally perplexed as to the reason for the variation and looking for you guidance on how to proceed with the project and getting acceptable matching stain color. Attached is a picture for your reference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked a Treat We just got done using the Gunstock color to stain a floor we were refinishing. As part of our decision process, we also purchased in the neighborhood of ten half-pint cans in different colors, as well as half pint cans of poly in satin, semi-gloss, and high-gloss. We made up over twenty test samples using those stain colors alone and in combination. Deciding was difficult! Gunstock was what we landed on. We water popped the floor before wiping on the stain. I hand wiped it, timing each pass so as to allow for six minute intervals. I was careful to work at a consistent speed both in applying and in wiping. I'm really glad that I hand wiped the stain vs using a roller or an applicator on a pole. Hand wiping kept me close to the surface so that I could monitor how things were going. Just one room, so using a rag-on / rag-off method was easy and took maybe an hour at most. Knee pads! Next time I will use knee pads. LOL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to work with and many colors to choose from [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased a house in Jersey a few months ago, and after removing carpet found that some of the hardwood floors were in good condition. After sending them down and applying Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, we chose to stain them with Minwax Wood Finish. I didn’t realize realize how many colors of Minwax Wood Finish there are. We choose a dark with with a hint of blue tint to it. Minwax Wood Finish of really easy to use and goes on well. After applying Minwax® Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner and waiting a couple hours we applied the Minwax Wood Finish. I didn’t realize that a little actually goes a long way. We will definitely be using Minwax Wood Finish again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product to use with great results! This is STILL the only brand I will use and have been using it since I was a kid in wood shop in the early 80's. Three coats of poly is next and what used to be a sauna in the basement will be a functional shower. Thanks to Minwax for staying true to quality first!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color on label is way, WAY different for reality! I bought Gunstock 231 to use on a woodcraft project. The label looked a lot like the Early American that I had been using, NOT! It is reddish orange. I should have tested the color but in the past the colors were very much like the label. Never again! I will go to the other big box for the other brand for my business in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice wood stain [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently sanded down my wood mantle and did a new stain with this Minwax wood finish. I have always used Minwax and like that there is a good color selection for my projects. I applied with a rag and wiped off the excess as needed, it went on evenly and a little goes a long way, this jar will last many projects. I ended up doing 2 coats total and only waited 2 hours between application. The end product looks very nice and professional and it was convenient that the dry time was so short. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Results Every Time! I moved into a home 37 years ago with all bare unfinished woodwork. I looked over all the brands I could use to finish my woodwork and chose Minwax Oil-Based Special Walnut. It was so easy to use and the color was gorgeous! That sealed the deal -- I now use Minwax Special Walnut for all my home projects, and there have been many. A family room bookcase and entertainment center, which I am now making doors for. This brand and product are top quality and have remained so throughout the years. It has given me perfect results beyond what I ever dreamed!
