I don't know why someone told you oil stain will no longer be available, I
haven't heard that, Maybe going up in price considerably because of the high
cost of petroleum. In fact just today I bought some Cabot Austrailian timber
oil stain, cost 30 bucks a gal though.
I like the oil stains, I haven't tried water based stains yet, how good
can that work? What if it were to rain before it dried? Would it wash away,
