    Default Stain pine ?

    Hi all, need suggestions as to what to use to stain/ colour raw pine to an antique cream light brown colour ? Not varnish or anything sticky but top of table must be reasnably waterproof as it's a coffee pouring spot.

    -Sand the pine with 80, then 100, then 150 paper-remove dust with blower/soft brush in all directions
    -brew strong cup of favourite coffee
    -spill said coffee on wood, spread evenly, add further/stronger coffee if required to adjust shade of colour-allow to dry thoroughly
    -apply clear warmed beeswax to warmed wood-work well into surface, buff as required8)



    PS: Nova make a good range of conventional stains!8)

    You can use an acrylic varnish it comes out in a natural colour with a matt finish and its doesnt yellow like normal varnish does

    coffee and redwine(sacrilege I know) and various mixtures of waterbased stains from hardware stores.

    cream light brown = beige?

    You can try a waterbased PVA that you have thinned down extensively (obviously testing on the underneath of the table top) until you get the finish you want, then seal with a matt sealer?

    I'm guessing a 'light oak' stain would work on the pine to approximate the 'oak' worktop colour.8)
    -you can always add extra coats of a lighter colour to deepen the shade if needed, but not vice-versa!

    I prefer to apply stain with a sponge rather than a brush-it seems to allow more control of spread/flow/coverage-which is important in staining, since overlap of strokes always shows. Working at top speed while the surface is still wet is crucial to get an even finish ( unless you are spraying it).

    Enjoy!

    PS-some of the brands on the shelves have good colour display sampleboards done specifically on pine and meranti/other, so you can get a very good idea of the expected finished colour.

    The gel type stains by Woodock is easy to apply. Make your pick from the colour samples in the store. Then seal with an appropriate polyurethane varnish - satin or high gloss to your liking.

    Patrick would extra coats of sponged on stain help waterproof the top against coffee/milk stains?

    Stain with woodoc wood stain, test on scrap piece of pine, then use woodoc 10 as per application instructions to seal against heat and water etc. Let it dry and harden properly between each coat - two days each, wipe down 3rd coat with kitchen towel as per instruction for a matt finish, let dry and harden a few days before use. Make sure you use steelwool that does not have large shavings in it when 'sanding' after each coat. Remember the woodoc 10 will make the colour slightly darker so keep that in mind when selecting the stain colour. Do it right first time and it will last a long time. Clean with furniture polish such as mr min or pledge regularly.

    I've used Gripseal ( a water-based wood sealant ) with great ease of application. It's available in a variety of tints, natural wood and standard colours. Hardware stores generally have samples of pine to which it has been applied. I know Chamberlains does.

    I wanted what I imagine is the same colour for our pine bathroom "bench".

    I used Gripseal Antique White. Semi-transparent, water based, waterproof and rapid drying. It is the cabinet/bench that the basin is mounted on. Almost 18 months later and it is still perfect.
    You can buy a 500ml bottle from pretty much any paint supplier at under R100.

    1000% - I have a whole cupboard full of stains. From water to sprays etc.

    I love working with the Woodoc Gel Stain. Somehow it just seems to be foolproof.

    Duncan, if you want realy smooth finish to the top before applying anything you can use the "whiskering" technique. Wet kitchen towel ( vatdoek) on the surface and iron it tilll it steams. The steam lifts the uncompressed grain which you sand down. Repeat twice and the surface will be like glass.

    I can check the data sheets tomorrow for the Woodoc and Rystix products we sell to maybe help with your choice of top coat.

    This is what our cabinet looked like before the bathroom was complete. What is not clear on the photo is that the wood grain is still visible.
