Rostasteve . Be carefull of other pre stain conditioners. min wax Makes two one is water based and the other is oil based. I have never used the water, but I have made the mistake of using the oil. The oil in the oil based conditioner will in it’s self blotch the wood. Big careful goes here. I would stay away from it. I have used Charles on several pine jobs. In fact I will post one tonight from striped down pine to a finished product. No blotch and it was very ez to do. And fast. You have to be carefull not to rub to hard or over brush when using water based products. You can cause migration of colors. I spray .vritgo mentioned it earlier in the post . You can control your colors a whole lot better when spraying . I relize you might not have spray capabilities . So go ez.. Look in my project page later . I ll post it. The schedule is Charles Neil BC, yellow dye , GF antique cherry and three coats of precat lacquer. Like the rest of the guys have already suggested . Call and order your products while your sanding the project down .they will be here by the time your done. Work a little each night on the sanding. You won’t be sorry.
