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

Java Gel Stain by General
I refinish Furniture and I make Picture frames and I needed a dark finish. This product brought back to life some old furniture. I now can make my picture frames and cabinets as dark as my customers want them. I must add it is done in one step, not like before, which took several steps, and even at that I was not happy with the results.
Absolutely love this product!
I have been using this product (especially this color) so many years. I love this dark brown natural color.
I bought this product to refinish my Grandma's furniture. I found this product by reading the blog of a lady who refinished her bathroom vanity and she swore by it. I have found everything she said to be true. It is so easy to use and the finish is absolutely beautiful! It looks like I have completely new furniture and I love it!
Great product for the average amateur
Used product to do mid-century modern dresser that had been painted. Was very satisfied with results. Dresser looks like it just came off the show room floor. Made me look like a pro. Love it!!!
Easy to use,great coverage !
Love this gel stain,used on bath room vanities, So easy to apply and covers really well. Must let dry well between coats.
I used this to stain my outdated living room furniture. It was my first time attempting anything like this. It turned out great!
