Better than wood stain, hands down.
When you need great penetration, good coverage and complete control over the shade, a good wood dye is essential. I used an alcohol base to avoid grain swelling and obtain fast drying.

Despite its price, this is an excellent product and the formula goes a long way, so the cost can be justified.
