In our case we sanded to bare wood but there is always some residual stain left in the wood the prevented the regular wiping stain from taking properly. gel stain was able to more evenly pigment the wood.


I would imagine something similar here and they wanted to layer the color to sneak up on the color match.

I've always been told the darkness and how the stain actually comes out is really reliant on the type of wood. I've tried both sherwin Williams and behr products, had similar outcomes. Really just depends on the wood.

I sanded to bare wood because the prior repairs were blotchy. I used gel stain because penetrating stain was too light. And my local didnít carry any other types of stains or dyes like water or alcohol dyes.

yes and actually dry brushing gel stain works best when the wood still has some finish.
