Project Information

I saw these for the first time a little over a week ago and knew I had to make them for the grand kids. The one on the left is Ash and stained with Red Elm Gel Stain, the one on the right is Red Oak finished with a Natural Finish Gel Stain. Each received a coat of Satin Polyurethane followed by a sanding of 600 grit Wet/Dry and a coat of paste wax, they are both like glass. The natural finish Gel Stain goes on great but the Red Elm stain was not so easy to work with. I put it on thick and let it sit over night, in the morning I took a rag dipped in mineral spirits and and wiped it down to the desired effect.
