Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stained and Confused I spent the about 10 years of my early life working in a furniture repair and refinishing shop where we exclusively used Minwax products, that experience left me with a long appreciated the high quality products produced by Minwax. Now several years later, and refinishing a piece of my own furniture, I defaulted to a Minwax product. I was attracted to this product (Wood Finish / Semi-Transparent Color Stain), in the color of Hickory. Largely because the color of Hickory in the oil based stain was not available in my local area, and this product was able to be mixed/made in the store, in the Hickory color. All good so far, but after applying the 1st coat, my immediate reaction was "What is the purpose of this product?" (i.e. the confusion), and "Why would anyone call this a stain?" As in no way does this product behave like a stain, in terms of working with it. It goes on very thick and it is very difficult to produce a even coat. So soon as it dried, with several inconsistencies, I sanded the piece back down to almost bare wood. Determine to use the product, I jumped in for round 2, applied a heavy coat (to keep it very wet, dripping wet) and worked as quickly as I could and then wiped off the excess. When that dried, it came out Fair (hence the Fair rating). However, I'm still confused as to what this product is intended for? Is it intended for finishing/staining wood at or near a professional level? or Is this product intended to be the "Chalk Paint" of stains? Something more for arts and crafts, vs finishing a valued piece of family furniture? I survived the experience without too much grieve, and I believe once I seal it the piece will look and perform OK. But I can't recommend the product, so back to real stains, which are far easier to work with and control, producing a superior finish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very thick and hard to get an even color I purchased an unfinished desk and planned to finish it with a solid stain thinking that it would soak into the wood and leave fewer streaks than paint. Boy was I wrong. I followed the directions exactly and it is so streaky, and uneven in color. It is very hard to work with. I hope the desk is not ruined as it is supposed to be a christmas gift for my grandson. I plan to give it a sanding and apply a third coat of stain, after that if it doesn't look good I will have to see if I can get paint to stick to it, I will not purchase this product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I bought this product to stain a desk top. After following the instructions of applying the stain then wiping it within 2 minutes found it made a blotchy mess. Then I tried applying a coat and not wiping it off it was better but still streaked. This is nothing like the old Minwax stain I am used to. I also checked this website for a video of how to apply and I found nothing. In the future I will just a good paint and and save myself a lot of frustration.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too thick, hard to get even pigment. I purchased this stain for refinishing a Pottery Barn entry table. Of course I spent 2 full days stripping, sanding, prepping for stain, and removed all dust. The first coat was very uneven, if product is left on too long it will remove the color. I did figure out that I was able to get it ok by filling in areas with the second coat. But there are spots where the product has piled up and looks terrible. I am now going to have to go purchase very fine grain sandpaper to assist with this issue. If that doesn't work I plan to go over this with some oil based stain which is probably what I should have done in the first place. This table would have been finished already had I not opted to try this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The new water based stain isn't working Having used Minwax forever, i bought the "New" water based stain and had it tinted. (staining SW Yellow pine to crimson) This new stain is really thick. A stir stick will stand up in it. I don't like it. 1. A lot of product is left on the wood and wiping off the excess is a gooey job. Applying Less stain doesn't seem to work. 2. I finished my second coat and still do not have the deep color that i'm used to getting. (Normally a 2 coat application using the "old" thinner stain) 3. Going back for a third coat. At this rate, i'm using more stain and that increases cost. 4. Using a brush wasn't very good. It's thick and a brush leaves narrow rivers of stain that won't lay down. 5. A sponge was better, but #1 above 6. Cloth didn't work at all. The stain seemed to dry and get tacky while i was applying thin coats. OK, so maybe i need to get used to it...i'll finish this project (2 drawer chest - new build) and add a review as a follow up. Right now, court's out and i'd hold off on recommending this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier than I thought [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I waited to do this review as it kept raining. And I was nervous that I may not be able to use the product properly. But one sunny day and instructions followed I have a chicken coop with great color on it. Minwax solid color stain in red was fantastic. And I won't be nervous using this product on future projects. Anybody can do this if I can and it was so much easier than I thought. So worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one coat [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This stain was perfect I did one coat on my dining room table and it dried flawlessly I had scratches on my table from my kids throwing things on there and it covered it up right away with no problem and made the color more pigmented

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A stain with pros and cons [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Minwax® Wood Finish Water-Based Solid Color Stain has its pros and cons. I would likely buy it again in a different color. Pro: It was simple and easy to use from pre-stain to final coat. Con: I chose the barn red but unless I put several coats on the wood it had a pink tint to it which was not the outcome I was looking for.
