Details

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. 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.

General Finishes Gel Stain Features:
  • 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

    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.

    Wonderful Product!

    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!!!
