Topic tags/keywords: kneeler pine staining sanding

So I want to thank everyone for their help with my sanding/staining problem. I know pine isn’t the best wood to build furniture out of, because of how easy it damages, and stains very poorly, etc, etc. I really didn’t want to sand it all down and try to redo the stain – the wood only cost me about $15 and the stain was only about another $6….so I decided to put 2 more coats of stain on it, and see how it’d look. I think it looks pretty decent – especially for my first BIG staining project. One of these kneelers made “professionally” are sold for anywhere around $200-300. I built this one for about $25. Can’t really complain. THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP IN MY PREVIOUS POST. I have to make a few more of these, for more gifts, your advice will help me make them better!!

It looks pretty good except for the stir stick and can at the bottom. The woodwork part looks great to me. It will get easier and better with experience.

Just ask, we’ll be glad to offer suggestions.
