Can someone give me a retail source or brand name of some dye stains? It seems that Minwax is basically a pigment/dye stain. Before I spend more money to “find” a pure dye stain, I was wondering if you can point me to a brand.
I know I can make one but I would prefer to buy ready made dye stains if available. My goal is to get a stain that penetrates and reduces the strong contrast grain look that I get with oak. I read (Bob Flexner’s book) that dye stains are best for this.
Is Cabot stain any good? My local lumberyard sells that one. Obviously the Home Depot sells the Minwax. My Sherwin Williams dealer sells it too.
Sorry for basic questions. While I’m pretty good with paint and home carpentry, I’m just starting out with wood finishing. I have some oak wood trim I’d like to stain.
Thanks in advance for your help.
