I did learn another thing this past week about MinWax stains – - – -
I bought a fresh quart of MinWax Polycrylic for a project that I had stained with MW Red Mahogany
while getting ready to brush on the Polycrylic, (I normally use spar varnish),
I noticed in the very small print on the can of stain . . . it says to use any varnish,
polyurethane or other coatings but – do NOT use Polycrylic over “ANY” Red Mahogany stain…....
another reason that I do not use (or endorse) many minwax products. (if any at all).

Read, Understand and Follow the instructions on the label of all products you use.
Pay particular attention to the safety notes and heed the warnings accordingly.
any rags used in the prepping/painting process that have solvents, oils, stain or paint on them,
should be laid out in the open to completely air dry prior to discarding them.
