Building 101: Different Wood Stains
Enhance the natural beauty of wood by applying oil-based stains
Wood stains lend a certain wood tone to an otherwise plain piece of lumber. It also adds a protective film similar to that of clear varnish. You can opt for a half tone or a full color of the stain depending on your taste. Use these on cabinets, paneling, and furniture.
