Today I started finishing a Maple dresser using Minwax Mahogany Gel. Fortunately my test case was the back of the dresser. I am not at all satisfied.
I used pre stain conditioner and allowed minimum time (about 20 minutes) before applying. I rubbed off using a old "T" shirt. My previous experience has been using Minwax stain from which I have had acceptable results. As O'Reilly says " Where am I wrong". My garage is my shop during WW time and spraying seems out of place. Suggestions please.
