Most of the projects I build don’t usually require using stain (just a clear finish).
The building of the cabinet came out pretty well. It was a learning experience for sure.
I was advised to use a pre-stain on the entire cabinet to help reduce blotching so I picked up a can of Minwax Pre-Stain when I bought the Minwax stain. I followed the instructions and the result I got was lousy.
I didn’t get the “apply and then apply stain within two hours” instruction but I followed it anyway.
Can anyone lend some advice on where I may have gone wrong here? Needless to say, the wife is not overly impressed with the finish on it.
Sorry for the lousy picture but it’s all I have at the moment to show you.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
