Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to use it properly. I purchased this and tested it on some pine. I had some blotchy results initially when I tried to stain soon after I wiped off the excess. Best to let it dry a good hour or so then apply the stain and it will be perfect. You need to let the conditioner fully dry otherwise it hasn't created the proper seal below the surface.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrated and disapppointed I have completed numerous staining/painting projects in the past, never using pre-stain conditioner with very good results. Bought some unfinished parawood furniture and decided to use this conditioner for the perfect finish. Followed instructions on the back label and final result showed heavy blotches and dark spots. Is there a way to correct the finish to the even uniform look I expected? How?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work for me I used this on birch butcher block in conbinatiin with Rubio Monocoat and the results were very blotchy and inconsistent. I followed the instructions on the can and even watched a few videos. I'm not sure what happened. I will just have to live with the results...disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm Going To Try This Again The first coat of stain on my pine wood project turned out blotchy after using the conditioner. I started staining after 15 minutes had passed and wiping off excess. Perhaps the product needs more drying time than 15 minutes? If it's better to wait an additional 15 min-1/2 hour, shouldn't the directions state, "2. Allow to penetrate for 5 to 15 minutes, then remove any excess with clean dry cloth. Wait 1/2 hour before applying stain. 3. Apply stain within 2 hours of application..." The window to stain is less but wouldn't the results be worth it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product, but.. I used this product prior to applying Special Oak and Weathered Oak over a test piece of pine- the results were so even and beautiful! On the barn door I applied the conditioner and it looked as if the product was blotchy.. I’m thinking the wood may have been a little too wet still so I didn’t proceed with the staining. I’m going to let the pine dry for a couple more weeks- then should I sand off the conditioner and start from ground zero? Or should I just apply another coat of conditioner and go from there? Thanks Minwax! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use on every wood stain project. Plan your work. I make cabinets and use Minwax oil based stain on them. I use the conditioner on every project. Follow the directions and wipe off all excess within 15 minutes and stain with 2 hours and results are great. Plan your work so you can do this within the time frame required. If you attempt to do too much staining within 15 minutes of application you will get poor results. Follow directions and get good results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pre stain conditioner I am a wood carver and use wood conditioner before staining any carvings to get an even stain without a patchy looking finish
