what did you do to finish this piece? In pics 4-5 it looks like you stained/dyed it, but then how did you get the finished product in pic 6?

the reason I ask is because I am currently building a coffee table out of the exact same material/construction as you. That look in pic 6 is what I am looking to achieve.

Matt: I’m not aware of any PAINT made by Minwax.

The only Classic Black Satin Finish by Miniwax that I know of is in their ”Polyshades” Line. (As Below, Brush & Spray), It doesn’t appear to available in their standard “Stain Only” lineup.

Polyshades is a combination of Stain and Poly that you apply in one step. I guess you could put 2 more coats of Poly over it if you wanted to.

I tried it once. It was a Disaster! You have NO Control over how the stain is “Working” i.e. You can’t brush or wipe it to your desired color, or consistency because of the Poly.

I use their Standard Stain, Black is “Ebony #2718”. (As Blow) After I’ve worked it, let it dry, then I apply a Water Based Poly of whatever “Sheen” I might choose, and the number of coats.

I realize that. Matt Said: “OK, so you painted it black :-) I wasnt sure if that was black or just a dark stain.”

I just added His Name to the front of my Comments.

You Said: “Two Coat Of Minwax Classic Black Satin” which is only available in Polyshades.

It was a Point Of Clarification. Not A Correction.

Feel Better Now?

Rick, thanks for the clarification on the Minwax product. I have not tried using that yet.

Alvarez, I saw “black” and “satin” in the same sentence and my mind automatically jumped to spray paint. I am not used to the minwax products or stain/poly mixes. Sorry for the confusion.

So, answer me this: with this polyshades product, is there some transparency that allows the grain to show through, or is is completely opaque?
