Wood Stains: Oil Based

Furniture Design Ideas featuring Oil Wood Stains.

This project is a combination of a tile top table and a portable coaster.  The tile was custom made at a local pottery shop.  The table was inspired by the splay-legged table by Garrett Hack.  The top and aprons are natural cherry. The legs are stained cherry.  General Finishes products were used to complete the project.  The wood conditioner and stain were straightforward and easy to use.  For the topcoat I found applying the finish with a foam brush and wiping the excess off with a cloth...

This Ginkgo Biloba inspired bureau was build around contrasts: matt & shine, dark & bright, classic & modern. 

I've chosen black and dark shades of greys as a canvas for sparkling copper accents. I used copper leafs and some metallic paint to achieve the look. 

I love leaving the best parts of the original woodwork so i left old intarsia around the edges and i refreshed the top of the piece by applying general finishes maple woodstain.

"Candlelight (liquid oil based) stain to the rescue on this antique drop leaf table. My client had it 'restored' and the water and heat damage was still visible. General Finishes products to the rescue!" - Amy of High Style Restyle   See all the details of this project at http://www.highstylerestyle.com/blog/how-to-restore-an-antique-dropleaf-...    
"I picked up a bunch of these chairs from an old church in Denver. They are original to the church which was built in 1920's. I sanded this set, used 50/50 Shellac/D-Natured Alcohol conditioner. I then stained them in General Finishes 'Spiced Walnut'(liquid oil based stain). I did two coats and waited 24 hrs between coats. Some areas wouldn't take the stain so I dry brushed some GF gel stain in Java in those areas. It magically blended it all together. Sealed with GF's Arm-R-Seal." - Rehab to...
"This table had been previously stripped (you can see the old paint underneath) The top needed a coat of stain and top coat. I could have painted it but sometimes you just need listen to the piece. So I cleaned it really well, lightly buffed with fine sand paper and added a coat of General Finishes Light Oak Oil Based Wood Stain. A couple coats of Arm-R-Seal & its look beautiful again." - Rehab to Fab
Rehab to Fab says, "This solid oak chest screamed make me new again. I painted the the frame with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in 'Curio' & the inside, top, backsplash, drawer fronts & side slats got a good soaking of tinted Hemp Oil. Tinted with General Finishes Oil Based Spiced Walnut stain. Distressed Antique Bronze Bin pulls finish the piece off. I wanted to keep it more original & not cover it completely with paint."
