Before you apply your stain however you should prep your piece to ensure the stain covers correctly. Clean the surface you plan to stain Sand the surface. The suggested grit is 120-150 grit, you want to make sure that any existing finish that might be peeling is removed so the stain applies to the actual project surface. Apply the gel stain liberally with either a cotton cloth, natural bristle brush or a poly foam brush. (Be sure to test a small area of your project to make sure it is the finish you want and that the application method you've chosen is working well for you.) Wipe off the gel stain going with the grain using a clean dry cotton cloth or high quality paper towels. Let it dry, between coats give you project a chance to dry. Drying time varies based on the size and nature of your project as well as the environment it's located in. Normally drying time ranges from 6 to 12 hours. Repeat Steps 3-5 IF you want more coverage or you want a deeper/richer finish.Suggested TopcoatTopcoat can be used as a sealer over paints and stains or as a clean finish. If you want to use a top coat the recommended topcoat is Oil Based Arm-R-Seal Urethane Topcoat (sold separately).
Nexabond Wood Adhesive combines the quick bonding and short clamping times of cyanoacrylate glue with longer open times. This makes it easier to assemble furniture and cabinetry projects without having to race against the clock, yet the glue cures in only one hour. Nexabond has a thicker consistency than CA glue, eliminating runs and drips. Unlike most wood glues, Nexabond contains no solvents — not even water — so the wood won't swell. That means you can sand immediately after curing without worrying about sunken joint lines due to shrinkage. Nexabond is ideal for joinery applications, and bonds to many other materials besides wood. It is available in two open times: Short (1-3 minutes) and Medium (3-5 minutes). Woodworkers have used CA glue for years, but its extremely short open time and runny consistency have always limited its usefulness to certain areas, mostly turning. Enter Nexabond 2500, which lengthens the working time of the glue, yet bonds extremely quickly so you spend less time waiting for glue to dry, and more time working with wood.Winner of the 2013 Visionary Award from the Association of Woodworking and Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS).Forms a glue bond stronger than the wood itself.Sets in only minutes, cures in 1 hour!Bonds reach full strength after 8 hours in most subtrates.Generous open time gives you more time to work.Thick consistency won't run or drip.No activator required.Nexabond 2500 is ideal for joinery applications such as dowels, mortise and tenons, biscuits, dovetails and box joints.In addition to wood on wood joints, Nexabond bonds other materials to wood, such as metal, ceramic, glass, foam, leather, paper, composites, plastics and more.No water means no swelling and subsequent shrinkage.Unlike with water-based glues, you can sand or machine immediately after curing without worrying about joint lines becoming visible when the water evaporates and the joint line shrinks.Because Nexabond contains no water, it is also an excellent adhesive for joining extremely oily woods.Tight joints are important, since the parts won't swell as they do with waterbased glues.Accepts most stains and finishes.
