I need a little help.
I have a piece of 8' x 4' cherry plywood. I'd like to use it as a table
and was hoping to stain it with a bottle of Mohawk Oxblood finishing
The wood is right out of the lumber yard. Smooth enough for me.
Any tips on applying this stain? I tried it out on some scrap and I'm
having a hard time getting the color even. I get streaking using either
a brush or cloth. I'm finding it a little hard to control the darkness
as well - some spots get REALLY dark.
Any ideas? I'm new to all this so there may be steps that I need to go
through first...like a conditioner or something.
Also, I don't have access to a spray gun, so that's not an option for
me right now.
All I want is an even color with no brush marks/overlap. It'll be used
for a table top (the whole piece).
