Bona DriFast Stain® is an oil based product. Colors are intermixable enabling us to create nearly any color imaginable. DriFast can be top coated with both our oil & waterbased finish products. We can use Bona Stain on red Oak, white oak, hickory, ash and other woods. We prefer some of our other options for staining woods with less grain such as maple or birch. For these woods we recommend Varthane® as out first choice or Sherwin Williams® as another great option.

Varthane® Premium Wood Stain is an oil based wood stain manufactured by Rustoleum®. This stain works great for staining all wood types and it’s our absolute favorite stain for staining maple, birch or other tight grained/harder woods. Varthane® is readily available at Home Depot & Menards so if you’e planning to use our services but want to do a little stain testing on your own, you can get it at any Home Depot or Mendards location.


General Finishes® has been a favorite product of wood workers for decades. Their Pro Floor Stain represents the most technologically advanced waterbased stain product on the market. Until recently only oil based stains could provide rich + even coloring. This waterbased stain has very low VOC’s and it works well for staining most wood types.
