Interior Wood Stain - Cherry is rated

Worked exactly as described
Used the gel stain to refinish an MDF desk and it worked really well
If you follow the instructions you should not be disappointed. This stuff will stick to anything. Definitely needed more than one coat (2-3) to get the colour right.
I will be buying this stuff again to refinish more MDF furniture

Look at this like it is paint. It does not penetrate wood but rather sits on top. We put in on our railing and need to touch up all the time when it gets nicked. A proper stain and not a gel stain would not have this issue. We sanded the railing down and did 2 coats of the stain along with 2 coats of a sealer. Still needs touch ups. Buy the stain and not gel stain.

Dont buy worst product, uneven coating, naked spot
I was painting naked wood. Fresh with nothing on it. Cleaned and ready to go. Firstly the colour was nothing like the picture on the label. I bought antique maple looking for a light coloured feature with an older look. The colour came out bright orange. Like a pumpkin. Absolutely hideous on my wood. I want to burn it. The orange is disgusting. I painted on an even coat. Multiple layers and there was significant balding. The paint didnt layer well or hold. So after seeing this disgusting colour and the bald spots, I immediately went to a hardware store to buy another shade. The hardware store was a mom and pop shop and I was blatantly told they dont carry the minwax gel line bc of how inferior it is. They balantly informed me it doesnt spread easily or cover well. Greaaaat. Wish i went there instead of lowes. I was then informed because this is a gel i couldnt even go over it with a standard wood stain. I have to buy another gel formula. Another company makes a gel stain, thank god. Got myself a can of that from another store. I would never buy this brand again. Would avoid gels in general.
Dont buy this trash.
