Quick Overview

Gel Stain American Oak Pint
Gel Stain American Oak Pint is available for purchase in increments of 1


Gel Stain from General Finishes is home of the popular Java Gel Stain featured across the nation's social media for upcycling furniture and cabinets.

Gel wood stains are heavy-bodied and do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil-based wipe-on stains do, providing the deepest, richest colors of any oil-based stain available.

Everybody knows buying new cabinets can be very expensive. So when you want to look like you have new cabinets but all you really want to spend is sweat equity, spruce up your cabinets with Gel Stain. Gel Stains are formulated with a combination of pigments, oils (yes these are oil-based products), and urethanes to produce a durable and beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish. Gel Stains are heavy-bodied (translated as thick less likely to run and drip all over the place), and so do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oil base stains do. Apply with light even coats, usually takes 2-3 coats, then cover with a top coat. Let the project dry thoroughly between coats. Dries to touch in 4-6 hours. Re-coat in 24-48 hours depending on the temperature and humidity.

Final topcoat can be applied in 24-48 hours for oil-based topcoat or 72 hours for water based topcoats - again depending on the humidity and temperature. Go from old-fashioned to fabulously fashionable in no time! Available in all the popular colors, go light or go dark you choose.

Cannot be shipped by air or through the postal system.
