Explain Gel stain to me, can it be used for stair treads?
All i know about it when I read about it is that is sits on top of the wood and does not go into it. That doesnt make sense to me in reality.
Can i use this without worry on stair treads?
What does sit on top of the wood mean in this case? is it a layer of something or does it bond/sink into the wood.
im using doug fir thick treads and im thinking gel stain may be the only way to get consistency but I am not understanding how this stain really works and its correct applications
