Java Gel Stain 1/2 Pint
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...
• 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

• Easy-to-use stains simply wipe on with a cloth or applied with a foam brush (no spills or splashes)
• Available in 11 colors
• Multiple coats can be used for even more color combinations

We saw the use of this product online for re doing finishes and it was everything that was promised.
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!
The best gel stain I've ever used!
I refinished 2 bathroom vanities with this. They both came out perfect.
This stain covered great and was easy rouse.
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!
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!
Easy to stain, no mess!
Found this on pinterest. I'm glad I've tried it. Ordering bigger one for bigger project.

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.
