Default Stain & Poly

Anybody make their own?
If not, which brand have you used, why do you like that brand, and under or on what surfaces?

Minwax Polyshades
Varathane stain and poly

Stair rails, casings, doors, thresholds, cabinets, etc.

If youíve made your own, how did you do it? Iím curious because the brands above donít have the color I want. Do you just take stain and add poly as the names imply?

Thanks

If you’re looking for a stain and PU sealer in one you can try Duraseal QuickCoat. Although it’s a flooring product it works well on vertical surfaces and can be wiped after being applied unlike Polyshades which IMO is a DIY product, probably a poorer one at best. It can also be reduced with the Duraseal Quick Coat Penetrating Finish #110 Neutral to lighten it to the appropriate shade. It is an oil and will yellow slightly. You can clear it with an oil PU. Duraseal does make an oil PU which I haven’t used so I couldn’t recommend it with any amount of confidence. Poloplaz makes an easy to use brushable oil poly. Although it’s designed for flooring it works well on vertical surfaces having a pretty good open working time, sands to fine powder, and is extremely durable and mar resistant without providing a heavy build. As I sometimes include with suggestions for wood finishes it’s best to test and sample it out for yourself first, particularly with how it relates to its intended use. What works for me might not work for others.

I posted a photo of the QuickCoat being applied at the “sources of income” thread where it was used on a floor over bleached and dyed white oak. It’s the 4th photo down at my post.

GF RTM stains 5-10% into waterborne poly. Very easy matching. This is what I use to match existing woodwork into a poly.



Benite 10-50% any oil based stain can be used as a sealer+toner on raw wood and can be wiped to use as a varnish.


Odies oil + mixol colorants works nicely as a wood finish.


solvent lacquers and other clears oil/water can also be tinted with mixol pigments or transtint dyes.
