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

    Easy product for beginner

    LOVE this stain! I have never attempted a staining (or painting, or anything!) project before but after reading a Pinterest tutorial including the product I became inspired to convert an ugly light wood dresser to a beautiful, rich espresso. Product is very easy to apply and after three coats, my junky freebie dresser looks like a brand new piece of designer furniture. If this noob can use it and be successful, you can too! Don't hesitate to give it a go!

    Great product!

    This stain was great for my bathroom cabinet re-do. I had the builder's grade, ugly light oak color cabinets, and this java gel color was absolutely beautiful after 3 coats! So easy to apply - anyone can use this product!

    Great Product

    First time using gel stain and it was quite easy to apply to my 2 end tables. Loved the expresso color. Used a man's tube sock to apply and a small can goes a long way. Just had to stop myself from overspreading the stain.Will definitely buy again and the customer service and shipping were terrific.

    Easy to use with a great end result

    I used this to refinish a bathroom vanity and couldn't be happier. It went on smoothly and really covered the older wood even with the blemishes there from age. Love the richness of the color, too!

    Easier than another national brand

    I have not used on the project it was purchased for yet but the test pieces worked great. The Gel worked much better than an another big name gel stain.
