    Early in my woodworking career, I lived by the maxim that I would never artificially color the wood I was using.

      Raises the grain more than any stain I've ever used

      I used this dye on a live edge pine bench and the color came out nice but I've never used a "stain" that raised the grain more. Instructions say it doesn't raise grain ... not true!

      Excellent results for first time user

      This was my first time using a water based dud, and this resulted in the best finish I have ever put on one of my pieces of furniture. More care is required in using water based as opposed to oilbased for an even distribution, but with a little practice I was able to over come this with superior results. You will experience some raising of the wood grain due to the water base, but this will be overcome through sanding on subsequent sanding. I will certainly use again.
