Product Information:

These oil-based Gel Topcoats and Stains are quite possibly the easiest of all finishes to use and achieve a "hand-rubbed" look without all the work. Application is easy with a foam brush or lint free cloth. The heavy bodied gel formulation permits the product to flow out evenly (no drips or runs) preventing uneven penetration for consistent color control. Combined with no sanding (your choice to sand or not) between coats and a quick “re-coat” time, you’ll be finished sooner with less effort and better results than ever before.

  • This is the stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all General Finishes' products
  • Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that shows up
  • Heavy-bodied, and so does not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil-base stains do
  • Can help you get a more even appearance on difficult woods such as aspen or pine
  • Easy-to-use stains simply wipe on with a cloth or applied with a foam brush (no spills or splashes)


  • Need help refinishing old cabinets or cabinets that are in perfectly good condition? Tired of that golden oak color
    and would like a more modern, up to date look? General Finishes Gel Stains open up a world of easy-to-attain
    possibilities for revitalizing wood furniture, redecorating your home by changing the color of wood cabinets,
    furniture and floors, and achieving an excellent first-time finish. These oil-based products are super easy to
    use and produce a ‘hand-rubbed’ look with little effort. Just apply with a foam brush or lint-free cloth
    and wipe off – heavy-bodies gel offers even flow and consistent color control. Recoat time is quick, and
    sanding between coats is your choice. Use the gel topcoat for extra durability and protection.

    Many homes built in the 1980’s used stock golden oak cabinets in the kitchen and the bathroom.
    These cabinets were made with excellent quality construction and have proved very durable over
    the years in your home. A couple decades have passed and you would like to bring your kitchen
    or bathroom up to date with a different color combination for your cabinets or furniture.
    General Finishes Gel Stain is the simple answer – and extremely affordable too!
  • Available in 11 colors, including the popular Java (shown here)
  • Multiple coats can be used for even more color combinations

    Comments about General Finishes, Georgian Cherry Gel Stain, Quart :

    Deep cherry color is hard to find elsewhere. Goes on easy and results in a beautiful finish. I used a stiff inexpensive throw-away brush to apply the gel and then wiped off the excess after 5-10 minutes. Put a second coat on the next day. Will not go back to regular oil stain again.

    I used this product on a curly quarter sawn white oak arts and craft bed room set. I first sprayed a transtint dye mixed in a sanding sealer shellac and then followed up with this product. I applied it with a clean cloth by hand. I was amazed at the color, uniformity, and ease. This will be one product I will recommend and use for years to come.

    Pros

    • Easy to apply rich color

    Cons

    • Will smudge

    Best Uses

    • Detailed Work
    • Small Areas

    Comments about General Finishes, Georgian Cherry Gel Stain, Quart :

    Great first experience using a gel stain. This product was easy to apply with a foam brush or clean rag. I found a rag to work better for me. Work small areas and apply enough that it wipes off easily. Don't over-work it since it will smudge if you try to even it out after a few minutes. This product dries to a gorgeous satin finish.
